Two years ago, I was completely outsmarted by a patient during one of my clinical rotations...
In Kincardine, Ontario, there was this one time I got totally outsmarted by a patient. I was eating my lunch and enjoying my Timmies when a patient rolled in on her wheelchair, turned on the faucet across the room, then rolled up to me and stared at me.
I asked her if she wanted some water (she was holding an empty Timmies cup)…no reply...
Since the faucet was still running, I went to turn it off and as soon as I turned back around, my Timmies was gone! Apparently she was known as “the Timmies thief ” around the facility.
She then held two empty Timmies cups in front of me in victory
Two years later...to be honest, if it happened again, I would still fall for that trick.
