Mary's Desk

Mary: "Dr. Grumpy's office, this is Mary."

Ms. Chatter: "I need to see Dr. Grumpy. My last neurologist moved away, and I'm trying to get my records from them so that (ramble, ramble, ramble)."

Mary: "Okay, let me see... We have an opening next Tuesday, at 3:45."

Ms. Chatter: "That won't work for me because Tuesday afternoon is when I watch my grandkids because my daughter works and her boss is an asshole because (ramble, ramble, ramble)."

Mary: "All right, what about... How's Thursday morning, at 8:00?"

Ms. Chatter: "Perfect. Mornings are always good for me because my husband walks over to the city pool to swim laps at the indoor one and I can have the car. They just opened the pool again last month, it was closed for almost a year, because I guess it had fallen behind all these state health codes and they had to set aside money to do the project, and (ramble, ramble, ramble)."

Mary: "Okay, I have that down. What insurance do you have?"

Ms. Chatter: "I'm with Sickness & Wealth HMO."

Mary: "Oh... I'm sorry. We aren't contracted with S&W."

Ms. Chatter: "WHAT? WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME THAT IN THE FIRST PLACE? YOU'RE WASTING MY TIME!"

Because rambling on instead of asking if the office takes your insurance isn't wasting anyone's time....

Oh god, this person is my mother.

That woman can't go through the drive-thru without telling the poor McDonald's worker her life story.

"I'm so glad I have this coupon for a free McCafe drink. I like to order a coffee every Saturday before visiting blah blah blah and I just don't have time to brew it myself because I have three loads of laundry to do blah blah..."

EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Yepper, it's time for government-run insurance.

I suppose she'd not support if she knew that she could get in all the ramblin' she wanted!
