For a first week on a job in a career that was still relatively newish to him, Jack thought that things were going pretty well. He was finding his way around, and the few runs that he'd been on so far hadn't been anything he couldn't handle it. It was nearing the end of his shift, and the busy work that he'd needed to do was completed, so he saw nothing wrong with grabbing a quick cup of coffee. He had no doubt that if he was missing something, or should be doing something else, that someone would quickly tell him and send him on his way, which he wouldn't mind. He had no real issue with taking orders from superiors, as long as they weren't assholes about it. He had a job to do , and he wanted to do it well, period.
He took a seat in the hospital's cafeteria after getting a cup of coffee from one of the vending machines, stretching his long legs out in front of him. He'd been meaning to try and get to know more people, but settling in, finding his way around town and familiarizing himself with his new home was taking a lot longer than he'd expected. This was his first time living far away from his family, even in college, he'd been close to his brother who was in grad school at the same university. He felt a little bit lost at sea, but he was a grown man and it was high time he really start striking out on his own. He took a sip from the paper cup, grimacing at how bitter it was, a little strong for his taste. But for a buck and a half, what else did he really expect?
Jack looked up, surprised to see someone joining him. "O....kay," he said tentatively as he looked at the other man, trying to bring a name up to go with the face. He'd met so many people over the last few days, but it seemed like with the doctors, for the most part, he was getting rushed introductions as he and the other EMTs were wheeling in gurneys, rattling off injury information about the patients. So it was difficult to recall every name, every position. But he knew this guy was a doctor (if he didn't remember it, the ID tags they all wore would have been a giveaway for sure), and he was thinking that he was a relatively important one at that, if memory served. And his name was.... Ed...something? Maybe? He wasn't sure.
He followed the other man's gaze as he glanced over his shoulder, seeing the intern that was lingering around. It didn't take a genius to put two and two together. "Got a shadow?" he asked the other man, a hint of a smile playing on his lips, nodding subtly in the direction of the intern. Sure, it wasn't that long ago that Jack himself had been someone's shadow, learning the ropes of his new career. But he was more experienced now, not a novice, and everyone knows that as soon as you're done being the trainee, you can poke a little fun at the new ones who come along.
