Mary's desk

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

Mrs. Crabby: "I need to make an appointment to see the doctor."

Mary: "Have you been here before?"

Mrs. Crabby: "No."

Mary: "Okay, so you'll be a new patient. We can see you on Thursday at..."

Mrs. Crabby: "No, I'm not a new patient."

Mary: "But you just said..."

Mrs. Crabby: "I've already seen another neurologist, and didn't like her. I just want someone else to tell me what they think."

Mary: "Yes, but if you've never seen Dr. Grumpy before, he'll need to take a history, and review tests you've had, and examine you."

Mrs. Crabby: "The other neurologist did all that. He can just read her notes, and decide. It won't take him more than 5 minutes."

Mary: "Ma'am, if you've never been here before he needs to take his own history and all."

Mrs. Crabby: "That's ridiculous. He can have 10 minutes of my time, no more. I'm very busy."

Mary: "I can ask him, but I'm pretty sure he'll say no."

Mrs. Crabby: "Don't bother. I'll find someone who can accommodate me."

Go in peace, Mrs Crabby. And Mary, write her name in your Little Black Book under Not To Get Appointments.

I hate it when people act like their time is the one in demand. Entitled bitch.

She didn't like the other neurologist, eh? Another bullet dodged.

Old Pappy advise I give to my children: People are jerks until they prove otherwise. Remember that and be guided by it.

I have seen many who have proven otherwise, but some who never will, the former are friends for life, the latter are entertainment.

Doc Grumpy and Mary,
Welcome to the Age of Entitlement! I can't wait for the day when we are "entitled" to tell an obnoxious, rude patient to go screw themselves WITHOUT the risk of them getting a Press-Ganey survey! LOL
Thanks for the laugh.
