A video went viral earlier this year which featured “sh–” New Yorker say. (You can watch it here.) The video features tongue-in-cheek clips of two New Yorkers saying, ““I want a dog, but it wouldn’t be fair,” “I read that in the New Yorker,” “Oh, I don’t own a TV.” The video is part of a You Tube phenomenon featuring, well, “sh–” people say.
Stav Birnbaum of Visiting Nurse Service of New York (I connected with Stav through Twitter) suggested we put together a video featuring stuff family caregivers say. So, we’d love to know the phrases or comments you find yourself saying over and over. To help, I’ve come up with a few places where you may find yourself repeating the same comment:
- What do you typically say in a waiting room after waiting too long?
- What do you say when your head is in the dryer for the 10th time in one day?
- What do you say to the pharmacist?
- What do you say when you meet another family caregiver?
- What do you say when you run out of incontinence supplies?
- What do you say when you’re in a hurry and your caree isn’t?
- What do you say when you haven’t had a chance to change out of your pajamas?
Share the stuff that family caregivers say in our comments section, below. I’ll keep you posted on the video.
