Alwayz and I were just talking and I wanted to see if others have done this same thing. Was sitting in the surgeons office yesterday and I could tell where he had been just by the color of scrubs. For instance, at my local hospital, the surgeons ALWAYS wear scrubs that are light blue. When they are at the surgery center, navy blue. The gyns almost always wear like a forest green in the office or at the hospital, but at the surgery center, again navy blue. Has anyone else ever had this experience? Just needed to do this to break some of my tension. Please comment below.

I've never paid attention before. I guess now I will. πŸ˜‰

Can't say as I've ever paid attention either. Not sure I will remember to either. LOL

The first thing that pops into my head is not the colour of their scrubs BUT have they washed their hands😳
I think it is cool when they have their own or hats.
Weird thoughts: I have come out of meditations and acupuncture treatments somewhat disoriented wondering if I have my clothes on 😳.

That's too funny!!! All my years of surgery, I've noticed the scrub thing and when Amanda mentioned it, I told her I thought I was just a wacko.. LOL!!! Oh, and one time I woke from surgery and they were getting ready to move me to the gurney and the nurse said, where's your gown? I said, how the hell should I know, I didn't know I was supposed to keep tabs on it.. LOL!!! The things that go through your head when you wake up disoriented!!πŸ’•πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‚

Haven't paid much attention, but I just remember one theater saying "you need to treat the audience like you're wearing a hospital gown and don't want them to see your butt." We all cracked up, but he also talked about the "show your heart to the audience..." Wish he still taught at my school 😌😏😞
