My grandmother uses this expression periodically and growing up we would chuckle and wonder what it meant. We would wonder did it involved a kitchen utensil and laugh because it sounds so old fashioned.
A nurse contacted me earlier this year about a Nursing Board Complaint filed against him. I mailed him a packet of information and didn't hear anything from the nurse until recently. He represented himself and still is representing himself before the Nursing Board by submitting a statement and meeting with Nursing Board staff to discuss the complaint.
The Board has proposed a suspension of his license and he applied for a license in another state and that State Nursing Board is asking questions.
The nurse however is still questioning whether he needs to retain an attorney. Will he take the suspension or proceed to a hearing? What are his options? What should he do?
This is a prime example of the "wait and see" approach in licensure cases. I am going to wait and see what happens if I represent myself and avoid paying the legal fees of an attorney.
I don't know what the nurse will do but I do have a better idea of what my grandmother meant by from shift to s+*&!
