So rare I get to see a thread change over....
Spike's Bitches 47: Someone Dangerous Could Get In
[NAFDA] Spike-centric discussion. Lusty, lewd (only occasionally crude), risqué (and frisqué), bawdy (Oh, lawdy!), flirty ('cuz we're purty), raunchy talk inside. Caveat lector.
And if he was trying to get a gift that effectively communicated a lack of commitment, well, it worked.
I know it wasn't mean to, but this made me laff a little.
Ah, new thread smell. 'S wonderful!
I need some advice, please. I love my new doctor, but I am having issues with her assistant. I'm supposed to leave a message with the assistant if I have an issue in between appointments, she is supposed to consult my doctor, and then one of them is supposed to get back to me. The problem is that the last part never happens unless I call for at least three days in a row, and then when I do here back from the assistant she acts annoyed with me for calling so much. I don't think it is asking to much to hear back from my doctor the same day I have an issue, is it? I am now on day 2 of calling about uti symptoms. So, what is the best way to handle this if I don't here back today?
I love the smell of new thread in the morning. Smells like...victory.
sj, I'd say that you should mention the issue to your doctor once you do get in contact with her. She should apologize and talk to her assistant.
I don't know what the standard is for a doctor calling back, but I would generally expect no later than the next day.
sj, You should definitely hear back right away about uti symptoms. I once waited a day to call my doctor about uti symptoms and got chastised, because she said I should get on antibiotics ASAP.
As for the best way to handle it, I would just keep calling, and if she gets annoyed, so be it. And I'd tell your doctor when you get a chance.
I've had issues with my doctor's office staff before, and one way I got around it was that my doctor had a pager number for use after hours, and I would deliberately call after hours and leave a message on her pager. I would make it clear that it wasn't an emergency, but I knew that the message got to her that way. Kind of passive-aggressive, but I did what I had to do for a little while. Things are much better with the office staff now.
Speaking of doctors, it took over a week and three (maybe four?) calls, but I finally got my doctor's note faxed from my neurologist about five minutes ago. I'm cleared to drive state vehicles at work! Woo hoo!
smonster, once a guy with whom I was trying to have a torrid affair gave me a gift... a designer keychain. Just from his shyness and proud little flourish, I expected to open the box and find jewelry. Of course I told him I liked it, but it was ugly. I think your guy did better!
