Pet Peeve

I am in a well crankazoid mood right now – diagnosed with a sinus infection, prescribed antibiotics. Waiting for them to work – did the doc really have to bang on several areas of my face and ask if it hurt? Did it heck??!!! Sheesh.

Anyhow, I just made an important call and was totally disgusted that the person on the other end of the line was eating during this conversation. It’s a pet peeve of mine. Don’t eat when on the phone, or use the washroom when on the phone – show me, the person you are talking to, some respect.

So what are your pet peeves??

Dressing for the doc

So I have this nasty sinus thing going on right now. I woke up this morning feeling that they were going to explode out of my face. The kind of pain that makes fingernails on the chalkboard not seem so bad. The kind of pain that makes you want to stick a knitting needle up your nose to try to relieve the pressure – don’t try that at home. Very dangerous.

I am going to go to the walk-in clinic to see a doctor and hopefully get something to ease this sinus crud. Which means I have to actually get dressed.

I hate to leave the house looking like I just got out of bed. So I will probably fix my hair all nice, and put on make up, and make myself look presentable. Which kind of feels silly in a way. If the doctor sees that you look ok, is he really going to take you seriously when you say you feel awful? I mean, obviously if you were able to shower, get dressed and put on make-up – you can’t possibly be as sick as you make out.

But if I go out looking the way I am – little children will shake in their shoes, and cars will veer off the road in an effort to avoid the scary HSM monster.

Do you think it makes a difference to the way the doctor regards a patient?
