Showing up at 2:10 for my 2:15 appointment, I figured I would be in good shape to meet some of my afternoon appointments (including dragging Ella along with me!). Shown to the good doctor’s office about 2:20 – not bad, only five minutes tardy. The warm-up stalling act takes my blood pressure and temperature to ensure that my possibly broken toe had not affected anything else, then leaves, assuring me that she will be with me â€œshortly.â€ Doctor appears at 2:35 – twenty minutes late, pokes my toe and sends to me X-Ray.
X-Ray does not take scheduled appointments – first-come, first-served. The promise of â€œ10 minutesâ€ morphs into 15 minutes then 10 more minutes. I leave and return this morning at 8:25 because they don’t take their first appointments (I am not able to get one of those – wish they hadn’t told me I wasn’t special enough) until 8:30. Now I wait, because they already have a patient in front of me.
Hmmm … this doesn’t seem like a business at all! Let’s try this out – ME: â€œM/Mrs. Buyer, I’ll see you at the property sometime this afternoon. Just wait – I’ll probably be there. Probably.
