Annie's desk

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

Mr. Car: "Hi, I see Dr. Grumpy, and I just got a letter from the MVD that they're going to revoke my driver's license unless my neurologist fills out a form."

Annie: "Okay, why don't you make an appointment and bring it in. Let me transfer you to Mary... You know, it looks like you were last here about 7 years ago, and sent us a letter to release your records to a doctor across the country?"

Mr. Car: "Yeah, I moved here 7 years ago."

Annie: "So are you back now?"

Mr. Car: "No, I still live here in Faraway state. It's their MVD that sent me this form."

Annie: "Well, Dr. Grumpy can't fill out forms on someone he hasn't seen in 7 years. For that matter, I'm not even sure if he can do them for a state he doesn't have a medical license in. Did you ever see a neurologist there?"

Mr. Car: "Of course. But the copay to see him is $40, and I haven't seen him in about a year, and he wanted me to come in to get it done and get my refills and all, so I thought Dr. Grumpy would do it for free."

Annie: "No, he'd have to see you in person after this much time, and if you're on the other side of the country you'd be better off..."

Mr. Car: "But I don't want to pay the $40 for some bullshit paperwork! Can't Dr. Grumpy call my doctor here and ask him to waive the copay?"

Annie: "No, he's not going to do that. Unless you're going to come back and see Dr. Grumpy, this is between you and your neurologist there."

Mr. Car: "Can you call around Faraway and see if you can find someone who'll see me for free? I really don't have time to waste on this."

Annie should be nominated for Sainthood.

"Also, does Dr. Grumpy know someone here who can give me a car?"

Why do I have the feeling her neurologist is the one who reported her to the DMV in the first place?

Today I woke up with BP 157/95, I per Dr.s Orders must monitor it for 30 days 2X or #X per day, because yesterday as he was checking me for BP RX refill he got a 160/100 reading and was alarmed.I think blood pressure rises in relationship to the number of people you have to deal with. Deal with none and you are fine, become a flight attendant and you are stroking out by 40, Handle front end at Dr.s office you might make it to 50. Next stop for me is the cloisters.

Some of those cloisters specialize in organic gardening and vineyards which produce the healthy version of spiritus frumenti, I've heard.
