CF. Clinical fellowship? or major Charlie Foxtrot?

25 Sep

CFs are kind of clumsy and doofy and ridiculous and any number of other adjectives which indicate that we just don’t know what we’re doing.

We really don’t. You’d think after 6 years of #slpeep schooling we’d have it together but you’d think wrong. It’s not that we aren’t booksmart, and it’s not that we aren’t loving our new jobs. We are just trying to fine tune our lives and our CRAFT and it’s a little messy.

If you’ve pulled any of the following stunts (that my fellow CFs and I have pulled), you MIGHT be a CF:

1) You thought this would be easier than grad school! Silly goosey.

2) You drive to EI homes and come to find out they don’t live there! And they speak Spanish! Donde esta tu casa? So you’re 45 minutes late. And/or you just completely miss sessions!

3) A child calls you a real nasty name and hides under a table. You aren’t sure the correct behavior management technique so you just stand there and try to entice them back with an iPad.

4) You reschedule a client and are proud of yourself…until you come to find out that you’ve scheduled them in a way that is non-compliant with insurance. Whoops.

5) You’ve educated a cardiac patient on CVA information.

6) You keep forgetting to reserve a room for evals and then you have to mad dash scramble around to find a room for a patient arriving in mere moments. And THEN you pick the wrong room and get yourself into trouble.

7) A patient’s mom calls you a baby.

8) Your supervisor comes to observe you. You get performance anxiety. You freeze! Drat.

9) You volunteer to assist with office work and turn on Pandora on your phone. Your supervisor comes to talk with you and it appears you’re playing on the phone in the middle of the work day. What a Gen Y-er you are!

10) Your gung-ho, save the world, CF passion can’t save you from the assault on your immune system. Sick sick sick all the time!

Feel free to share your ding-dong moments. I’m certain I’ll have more to share.

    Haha! Love these! I learned that if the child hides under the table you are supposed to move the table away from them, then VOILA! They must come out. You can also put cube chairs underneath the table so they won’t do it again.

      Ha! Love it! I’ll have to pass that along. Thanks Ms. Tara!
