Bonz

Okay, i decided to swallow my pride and ask this question. What EXACTLY does bonz mean? I've been hearing this word for years mostly from people in Jand. I took it to mean something that's tush, or teck, or really nice. However, i saw someone use it on facebook yesterday, and i wasn't so sure anymore.

I worked last night at the hospital and a patient stole my novel and Sudoku book i left on the chair while i went to take vital signs. I usually take my stuff behind the Nurses Station when i have to leave for an extended time but today i figured since they were all asleep when i started, i could leave it there. Usually it takes me an hour to get all their vital signs, but the machine behaved itself today and i was done in 45mins. As i walked back down the hall, i noticed my books were gone, only the flashlight was left. In the whole time i was doing vitals, i only noticed one lady come out her room. This was the same lady who kept me for over 5 mins when i went to get her vitals telling me how much her 18yr old daughter looks like me.

So the first thing i do is go straight to her room. I was going to ask if they (her and her roommate) had seen it, but i was kinda pissed, so i just flipped on the light. The first thing i saw was my pencil on her table, but i didn't see my books. So i walk over there, she had hidden the stuff in the corner of the table and put other books on top of it. I just grabbed my books and walked out the door. When she saw i didn't say anything, she said, "I didn't know they were for someone". For reals?! She had come out of her room a couple of times before that and saw me sitting on that chair, reading that book. We have to sit in the beginning of the hallway, so who else would have stuff there, besides she saw my flash light. I didn't respond, i just called her a thief in my mind (in my language, at least i get to make use of one of the few words i know).

Then i told the other staff on the next unit, apparently she must have heard me, cos she got really hot. She came out all flustered, and told me that i should never go through her stuff without asking her, that the next time i do so she'll break my hand. I told her not to take people's stuff then and i also told her i had the right to search her stuff. We are allowed to do that as long as the person is there cos a lot of stuff gets stolen, sometimes if it's important enough, we do room searches. I've never had to do that. However i figured since she hid it, she wasn't about to give it up voluntarily if i had gone up and asked her if she had seen my books. I hate people like that. That's just dirty. They just steal stuff just to steal it.

  8. I was going to ask what kind of hospital you worked. I guess that's why she thought it was okay to break your hand. Tell her you'll break hers if she stole again.
