THE DENTIST OFFICE FROM..... choose your own words (plural).

On Friday I had a dentist appointment (I brush my teeth regularly so I don't have to worry much). As I know, the dentist waiting room is meant to wait a long time, so I decided to bring my Ipod with all 17 songs (1 hour and 25 minutes worth of music. 5 multiply it by 17). The appointment was set for 11AM. I got there at 11:05, to be exact. I signed in and sat down to wait. I got my X-rays within minutes. I noticed something weird, all the women, when finished their appointments, went to the bathroom. I also noticed that people who walked in after me, and signed in after me, went before me. So I walked up to the secretary to see whats going on. Turns out I was behind one person. Then it turned out I was behind one person for an 1 hour and 20 minutes. When the clock hit 12 I was wondering what is taking so long. At 12:30 I was pissed off because my Ipod battery died before, and now I was staring into space bored out of my mind. So after getting in at 11 AM, my appointment actually started at 12:50, and I was out of there by 1 PM.

Turns out I need to start flossing (when don't they tell you that), otherwise I was good to go, and my wait was for nothing. What I couldn't believe next was, when I was leaving I asked, why it took such a long time. They answered that I came at 11:30 and I got in at 12:30. I showed them the sign in sheet and... lets just say they wished they never spoke, and they were so wrong about 12:30.

That's hopefully my last experience with that dentist office.

That doesn't sound like a lot of fun.

Another reason why I avoid dentist's offices like the plague...
Frankly, I'd rather GIVE BIRTH....

Youre telling me.

I wouldnt put waiting in an emergency room for 3 hours worse than 2 hours in a dentist office.

Sally Hazel

exactly.

Going to one now...

Which one you go to? That's a very long wait.

Waiting in ER for 3 hours? Huh? Maternity ER is different from regular ER.

I have absolutely no experience with maternity ER. But I assume its sort of the same.

Moshe said...

Dude, think, pretty often the women barely make it to the delivery room.
Everyone comes to ER, sick or not. Maternity, people come there for a reason.

use a sonicare electric toothbrush and the dentist will never get on your case for the state of your flossing again. i sound like an advertisement, but trust me its that good.
