Thursday night, 8:05 p.m.

"Hi, I have an appointment with Dr. Grumpy tomorrow, but I keep my schedule on my cell phone calendar, and I've lost the phone. Can someone please call and tell me what time my appointment is? My cell phone is 867-5309. Thank you."

Maybe he using a *replacement* cell phone (since he lost the one with all his information on it.)

That is awesome in it's lack of brilliance.

Great. Now I am going to have that song in my head all day long. **three-oh-ny-e-nine**

Jenny Jenny!

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Yeah, I tend to use 867-5309 as the generic number in all my posts involving one.

It's anonymous, and everyone recognizes it as being phony.

The Mother said...

Alzheimer's patient? Just guessing.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Nope.

My guess is that this patient is between 54-67 yrs of age, not older because they don't have the nerd pocket protector that prevents cell phones from falling into the toilet when leaning over, and although the service has been available since the late 80's never ran into the problem before and doesn't remember how to call that magic number that allows one to listen to their own saved phone messages from any phone and (not to discriminated against us baby-boomers or anything). Recommend the class on remedial cell phone use 102.

LOL...now that was fricking funny. I wonder if Pelosi ever found her phone...thanks.

Patient clearly had their provider assign a replacement cell phone to the account.

Jenny, Jenny.... who can I turn to?

maybe he just planned on checking his voicemail from a house phone every hour or so to see if anyone called...?
