I sat in class today and I just didn’t understand.
The professor lectured, “Mercy Hospital is a large, multi-service, religious affiliated, non-profit private hospital….”
There was something about his clothes.
We were reviewing a human resource case study. “In 2007, the hospital’s total expenditures were projected to be $30,000,000 and 5% of that was devoted to nursing services….”
I understood him wearing a wrinkle-free white collared dress shirt under a twill two-button blazer.
“The hospital needed a cost saving strategy. Over the past five years staffing patterns had changed to utilize more nursing aides….”
I even understood him wearing the olive green tie with a pattern of flowers.
“Turnover had been fairly constant.…”
What I didn’t understand was why he looped his blue corduroy pants with a brown belt when he had on black shoes.
“Blah, blah, blah…”
Clearly, no one had told him the rule – when you wear black shoes put on a black belt. So that your students can focus.
