  • GotD: Work for a Medicare certified DME and finding out that when I speak with an assisted living facility, if they are calling in on multiple accounts, for every single goddamn account, I have to ask the caller(nurse) if they are authorized to speak on that residences behalf. Holy fucking shit. This is going to piss a lot of nurses off.

        While tempting, I predict my route is going to be "uhuh. uhuh. uhuh. ok" and then not do whatever he wants and not go back to him. Because I'm a freaking coward and am fond of the "if I just never see you again, everything will be fine" approach. I don't WANT to do this. I want to go in and say "look, your people have treated me really shittily, I don't like your methods, I'm pissed off that you rushed me into surgery when there are alternatives, and I really don't like that you won't listen when I tell you that birth control gives me terrible side effects. So Eff off!"

        But I won't. Because I'm a coward...

          Put on your Tough Bitch Bra and remind him that an unhappy client is a client that won't return.
          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

            Tell him, and if you can't say it then write it out in a letter. I've done that with a doctor in the past and guess what, he listened to me. After you give him the letter and if he seems as if he isn't willing to listen, give him the bird and walk out.

                  • Humidity! 97 is one thing, 97 with 90% humidity is a steambath.

                    I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.

                    “How does today’s youngster educate his sense of taste? By submerging it in a sea of sugar from the time he gets up to the time he goes to bed.” W. Root and Richard DeRochemont, Eating in America (1976)

                      I hope you're not in any danger from the fire. I have a friend living way out in the desert who may have to evacuate, he can see the smoke clouds coming. Fingers crossed for all in the area.

                        I was there awhile back. Heed the evac warnings, put on a dust mask (it may look funny, but it works) and bend INTO the wind. Sounds counterintuitive, but it really helps with visibility, balance, and breathing in high winds. Hope you feel better and I REALLY hope it doesn't get close to you.

                          In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                          • GotD: New commercial for Mother's Cookies I keep hearing on the radio.

                            Basically the gist: I remember (insert warm, snugly fond memory from childhood), and then (insert relative that's probably dead), would sneak a Mother's Cookie into my pocket. I thought it was a secret, but mom knew the whole time. Now, it's my turn to do the same thing (i.e. let my parents give my children a lovely dose of chemicals, grains and sugar and equate that to love so that they will have food issues for the rest of their lives). OR-- now, when I have said biscuit of chemicals grains and sugar I feel my (insert relative's) love.

                            Vomitous.
