But I’m fairly annoyed and feel the need to bitch. If you don’t want to hear it, then stop reading now and come back tomorrow.
I had the occasion to be somewhere, in close quarters, with not one but two supposedly professional people first thing this morning. People whose occupations put them in the position of literally impacting others’ lives. Yeah, serious stuff here.
It wasn’t bad enough that they were both openly disinterested. As in seemingly bored by the whole thing they were doing. To the point of being rude. And when questioned, because yes, I do ask questions when I’m out and about and have them, became borderline hostile, like I shouldn’t be taking up their time with something so trivial as my life. No, that wasn’t bad enough. They were also both chewing gum. Loudly. Very smelly fruity gum.
Getting the picture? Or do you need more? Okay. Remember, I get migraines? Which can be severely aggravated by scents, especially yucky scents. And stressful situations, say like my doctor ordering some sort of potentially life-altering test. And then, let’s say some unknown doctor cancels half the test, seeing no need for it without even speaking to me in person. And, oh yeah, sends bored, uninterested, gum-popping, sighing technician flunky to tell me. Who then has the audacity to attempt to ignore me when I have the nerve to question said faceless doctor’s decision.
My head still hurts. A lot. My regular doctor was involved all day so I have yet to speak with her about any of this. And I’m really not looking forward to going back to the testing folks which, sooner or later, I will end up doing. Yeah, not at all a good day.
