All I wanted was a Pepsi

Working in a busy Emergency Room will desensitize the nurse as well as the patients that frequent the ER.

While working a code in an open bay four bed room with only curtains to hide the archaic violent way in which we pound on a lifeless body, I unfortunately forgot about the needs of the other patients behind the curtains. The code went text book and we orchestrated are efforts well. All are efforts could not bring this person back to their body and we were wrapping up this display when a voice came from the other side of the curtain. Excuse me, I know you’re busy and all, but do you think that I can get a Pepsi? Seriously?
