Aunt Agatha gave us five lines she never wants to hear on the job again, and of course we were curious what your most hated lines are. As we often do, we asked you directly on our Funny Nurses Facebook page and got some great responses!

You can read 10 of them below, and also be sure to leave your own in the comments below if you don’t see it here!

“Wow, it’s so quiet.”
—Siobhan Legge

“The one I hate most is ‘My (insert random family member) is a nurse and I asked her and she said…'”
—Christina Snyder

“You all need to hire more staff. Like we can control that! Maybe you need a personal sitter to handle your every whim!!!”
—Amy K. Hicks

“‘No one else has trouble getting an IV started.’ Amazing, since they weigh 400 pounds and are 5 feet tall. Or they have little to work with since they have used up their veins for drugs.”
—Patricia Field

“‘HEY NURSE’ is another phrase I can’t stand to hear. Also, ‘You’re a nurse….’ That usually means that person is going to tell you or show you something disgusting.”
—Brenda Anne Watkins

“My pain is a 15 out of 10.”
—Dena Stroomer Jensen

“I get my pain meds every 4 hours.”
—Inza Ulm

“You are so smart, you should have become a doctor…”
—Samina Anthony

“Since you are here……”
—Tricia Cunningham

“That’s not my patient!”
—Kathryn Gammell
