Honestly it sounds like some of the words she has chosen as 'substitutes' for the objectionable swear words are at least as bad or worse than the words they're replacing!   ;D

Life...in general / Re: To offer or not to offer leftovers?

If I had brought cookies and was planning on bringing the leftovers home, I wouldn't have appreciated someone telling me I needed leave them for the nurses. Maybe your comment rubbed them the wrong way, OP.

She didn't tell them they needed to leave them for the nurses.  She just said it might be a nice gesture.   ???

They may have not taken her comment the way she meant it, though. (ETA- e.g., they may have thought it was a passive aggressive suggestion)

Once again, I’m weirdly happy about a medical thing. I had my knee realignment surgery yesterday, and as part of it my surgeon did an arthroscopy to clean up the cartilage inside. He came through on a checkup visit today and told me that my knee was down to bare bone on the bad side, and then told the nurse that I’m tough.  ;D

I texted my mum and passed that on (she wants all updates) and she replied with just an :o emoji. She hasn’t told me I just need to “work through” my pain in a while, but until I started getting actual surgeries to fix things I know she thought I was making a mountain out of a molehill, so it’s nice to have outside confirmation that I’m not a wuss! >:D

That's great news! sounds like you are doing just fine.

It sounds like the letter carrier is doing everything right, just not everything to your personal.

I think the teacher's concern was on trying to keep the students' focus on the lesson. I don't think she was concerned about you traumatizing the students. Getting you out of the classroom to handle the situation was appropriate. It's possible that if you'd just gone to grab a tissue and look in the mirror, she might not have said anything. But your comment about bleeding out of your eye probably made her concerned you were going to engage in a conversation with the students about the cause.
This. You were already distraction. If the students think you are "bleeding from your eye," they are going to be looking at you. At 10 or 11, I'd expect at least one of them to be woozy and/or freaked out around blood. It was obviously enough blood that a student noticed it. Your master teacher's first duty was the wellbeing of her students. Step #1 was eliminating the element that was going to cause questions, undue concern, fear, and possible panic. By sending you to the school nurse, the teacher was showing the class that the situation was under control.
Just to put another light on her reaction, perhaps the master teacher is blood woozy. The thought of you "bleeding from the eye" could have overwhelmed her, and she was unable to keep her cool as well as she would have liked. You bringing it back up later could have embarrassed her. Of course, I don't know, but it's a thought.

It sounds as though the problem is Daisy's volume rather than word choice. If she's loud enough for someone to hear her over the phone and ask "What was that?" she's too loud. You mentioned that the team leader told the staff not to shout, so you may need to remind Daisy of that. Tell her she can swear all she wants under her breath, but it creates a bad impression if the clients can hear her.

I'm a practicing Christian, I'm sure I shouldn't find it as funny as I do. But "THE HOLY BODY OF CHRIST DOES NOT! CONTAIN! RAINBOW! SPRINKLES!" set me off and it kept going!|!

Oh goodness yes, Gallus is hilarious. I clicked ‘follow’ the first time I read the story about the giant fake eggs.  >:D
