An interesting shirt

 
Tonight I had to go to our locked inpatient psych unit to relieve them for break since there is only 2 RNs there at night.  I've done it before and it has always gone well with all the patients sleeping the whole time I'm there.

 

Tonight 3 patients were still awake when I got there at 12:30 am.  They were conversing quietly at a table in the common area.  I just sat at the nurse's desk while 1 RN when to break.  All was fine.  Then 1 patient gets up and I happen to notice his shirt.  It was a black tee shirt and on the back it said "Caution does not play well with others"!!!  And the not was underlined!! 

 

I about fell out of my chair and had a really hard time not laughing!!!  To see a psych patient with that shirt on just seemed hysterical to me!  Maybe I'm the only one though.....I'm not sure!

Last time I checked, psych patients had senses of humor too...

I never thought they shouldn't have a sense of humor. I just found it a funny shirt for the situation.
