The last time that Kathy was in the hospital, I noted that the scrubs worn by the staff looked very comfortable. So, the next time that she went into the hospital, I decided to purchase a set.
Scrubs are like pajamas that you can work in. Not only can you work in them, you can also sleep in them. And besides, civilian clothes in a hospital just look out of place. So, I set out to get me some scrubs.
My first stop was a discount uniform store in Grand Rapids. I had purchased clothing there in the past and knew that they carried a good selection. But, when I arrived at the store, it was no longer there. Rats!
A quick check of the internet yielded a store close to the hospital. So, I stopped in.
When I entered the store, there were racks of pink scrubs on my left and racks of green scrubs on my right. I opted for the green since it was my goal to fit in.
Shortly after I started flipping though the racks, I was approached by a clerk. She, in turn, redirected me to the mens section.
Now, I was expecting that the scrubs would be sized the same as regular clothing. They are not. They run from XXS to XXL. So, I asked the clerk for assistance. She told me that I would just have to experiment on the sizes.
After a few tries, I was able to determine that I needed an M but that only gave me the waist size. The length was a whole different matter. As far as I could tell, there was no length marked on the pants. So, I ended up sorting through the entire stack until I found a pair that fit.
Next, was the shirt. No problem with length. I just needed one big enough. After my second try, I settled on an XL.
Great! With a pair of pants and shirt, I was set for hospital attire.
