Sorry, Dr. G-H!

Receptionist: “Good afternoon, Dr. G-H’s office, how can I help you?”

Me: “Hi, my name is Mecca ________ and I’m a complete a-hole and got so involved with work that I totally forgot my appointment for my annual physical with Dr. G-H last Friday. I was in the shower Saturday morning and BOOM! A big wave came over me and it hit me like a ton of bricks that I forgot. I felt terrible the entire weekend and it’s so unlike me —“

Receptionist: “Hahahahaha” (cackling)

Me: “Oh, well, as I was saying, I’m terribly sor—“

Receptionist: “Honey, it’s not the first time someone was a ‘complete a-hole’ and ‘forgot an appointment’ andit won’t be the last, so don’t even sweat it.”

Me: “Did you just say a-hole?”

Receptionist: “Uh Huh” (chuckles)

Me: “I think I love you. When can I reschedule? this time I’ll throw it up on my forehead…” (sigh of relief)

Moral of the conversation: I love Dr. G-H’s office! 🙂

  1. Does this mean that they dismissed the I’m an a-hole fee for missing the appointment in the first place? If yes… maybe I should think about switching doctors offices because that would never happen at Dr. G’s in Denville. As you are fully aware his office staff SUCKS when it comes to patient/office relationships. In any case, glad to see that it worked out for you. Love you Mom 🙂

  2. OMG…thank you for my first laugh of the day! That was hilarious! Maybe you should pass along that number…the heat in my apt makes me so congested that I can’t breath in the morning. Ugh. Thanks again for the laugh.
