Scrubs on the Ground

I received a most appreciated phone call last Friday...

So I rushed to the hospital to pick up my lunch date
who was standing there waiting for me like this
It was so sweet!!!

We proceeded to have a good time kinda like this...

But, like all good things in life,
good things must come to an end.

After dropping him off at the hospital,
I was driving away feeling like this...

However, as I was driving through the hospital campus
I saw these...

Being worn like this...

Which made me look like this...

and all I could think was...

and continued home when 
this little diddy popped in my head...

And, it's stuck with me all week.

Scrubs on the ground,
Scrubs on the ground,
Lookin' like a fool 
with your SCRUBS
on the ground.

And it makes me want to take a dip in the...

It was seriously disturbing.

  1. Really gross. If I saw a doctor walk into my room like that I would get up and leave. So unprofessional.

  2. Medicine is definitely losing it's sense of professionalism.
    P.S: I don't know this song.

  3. I saw a lot of interesting scrub fashions when I worked as a CNA in a skilled nursing facility. It's almost always the techs. I feel like nurses and docs have more sense than that and understand the importances of looking professional.

    1. I would've wrecked my car if it was a doctor or nurse!

  4. If it was a petite woman, I will tell you right now what the problem is: No S or XS scrubs in the scrub machine! For the love of medicine, can we buy some damn size S scrubs for the ladies?! (And that is the explanation for why I am dressed like a cobalt blue smurf/thug with baggy pants in the hospital.)

    1. Scrubs manufacturers are you listening???

      Hehe... I'm going to call you Smurfette from now on... :)

    2. I've personally altered scrubs to fit some of my nurse friends. But that doesn't work very well with the scrub machine!! If I think of a better solution, I'll let you know. (I have a lot of time to ponder since I'm semi-housebound these days.)

      All the best!

  6. Never liked scrubs... I look like urkel when I wear them. either urkel-look-a like or they're on the ground!

    they don't fit or flatter my petite 5'2 frame. Good thing I am not a surgeon!
    And no more in house calls for this dr! yahoo!

  7. Hilarious :) And I must add that I have been guilty of some extremely saggy butt scrubs through no fault of my own (unisex scrubs = smalls that don't fit over my hips but mediums that sag crazily in the butt). Haha.

    1. There seems to be a common theme here.... I think the scrub industry needs to make smaller sizes!

  8. lol that's so funny- reminds me of the time the hospital had no XS scrubs in the machine so I had to wear a small instead- and I literally had to scrub out during surgery bc they started to fall down!

    1. I seriously hope a scrub company reads this.... what a waste of time to have to break scrub to pull up your scrubs! Ugg.

  9. If you are advertising to the scrub companies, then please put in a word for me. I would like to get smalls, but I have extremely long legs. They look like old timey knickers on me. I have to get tall mediums to fit my legs.
    BTW, so unprofessional to have "pants on the ground". Even if they are techs, most people automatically assume it's a nurse if they aren't wearing a white coat. Not good!

  10. Maybe I should forget about this whole grad school thing and just start a scrubs company for normal people (aka the people who don't fit in M or L scrubs or the people who need something other than XXXXL exam gowns.) I probably could make a fortune. :)

  11. How do they walk without falling on their faces?
