Someone who you admire
So why do I do this This was the question Mandy asked herself today . Well , actually , it is a question that Mandy asks herself pretty much everyday and has been asking herself everyday for the last twenty-years . Sure , there will be those people who will look at the question on a baseline level and think she is referring to the nursing field . After all , doesn 't everyone question the reason why they invest a great deal of time in a profession ? Burnout affects all members of every profession and there is no

She has always found him to be an annoying insufferable jerk that has never cuts anyone any slack . It was as if his rent-a-cop badge provided him with some absolute moral authority to push people around . Oh well , the world is full of such people and Mandy is well aware of this
