The Pop Quiz

One day during my second month of nursing school, my Professor gave my class a Pop Quiz…Pop Quiz Lessons Learned Lesson Learned Brandon Byrge Blog 1
I was a conscientious student, a good student, I had breezed through all the Quiz questions up until the very last one. The last question on the Quiz was…
“What is the first name of the woman who cleans our school for us..?”
Surely this was some kind of joke?! I had seen the Janitor several times before and knew that she was tall, had dark hair, and was most likely in her 50’s, but how in the world would I know her name..?!

“Absolutely”, said the Professor!
“In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say ‘Hello’!”
