    Then she wasn't a nurse at all.
    She would have been a VET TECH.

Her attitude was so bad I wrote the ticket and as she pulled away, she yelled "You'd better hope you NEVER end up in my emergency room!"........ to which I took offense, so I called her employer (the only time in my whole career I did that) just because of the extreme hate for law enforcement she displayed.

      I saw a doctor get fired for pulling a similar stunt. He worked at a local ER and got arrested for reckless driving. Apparently the local media was covering another news story at the time and while he was being processed, he made a statement that was very similar to that of your “nurse”, something to the effect of “Better hope I’m not the one operating on you” or something like that. News reporter picked up on the comment and eventually contacted the ER where he worked for comment. He was discharged about a week later for “ethical violations” while OTJ. Sucked to be him!

      I never heard of a ”nurse” in a veterinary office. Heard of veterinarians being called “doctor”. Heck, even saw some of them benefit from “courtesy” for being a “doctor”. Shaking my head on how a “nurse” (more like “vet tech” as our colleague pointed out) “expecting” some type of courtesy or consideration. What is our world coming to? :-(
      Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

        Veterinarians have earned the title Doctor. The course of study to become a DVM is just as long and arduous as medical school.
        Veterinarians who have board certified specialties take extra coursework/training/ clinical just like MD specialists.

          I wonder if there's some "nursing school" for this "pet nurse".

              Depends on the circumstances. Nurses will get a break to a certain degree for speeds (up to maybe 9-10mph over the limit) but not for red lights, mobile phones, seat belts etc. I usually book doctors. Not too many doctors even pull out the 'I'm a doctor' card in my experience.

                I usually let nurses, doctors, and military go unless they do something stupid, like drunk driving or driving suspended/revoked.
                The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

                I Am the Sheepdog.
