I finally got around to scheduling an eye exam so I can replace my horribly scratched lenses, and I decided to get all tricky and use the online appointment request service on the clinic’s web site.
I filled it all out in the morning (plus another one for a baseline mammogram because I’m old) and clicked the ‘Submit’ button with the smug satisfaction of someone who has finally gotten something done. Until later in the day when I got my appointment schedule in email.
April 23rd. At 7am.
The hell? How in the world are they even open that early? Not to mention that I’m still in a walking coma at that hour. Oh, and the small matter of the kids’ school not opening until 7:30.
Am I crazy? Why would they put me in at 7am without asking first? And more to the point, should I now be preparing to have the mammogram at 1:30 on a Saturday night?
