So we are at the doctor's office--a very busy regional specialist with several doctors, many nurses, three receptionist stations at the desk and a lot going on. We were a bit early for an appointment with the nurse to go over some information and instructions, and it was still the lunch hour.
A man came to the desk and asked to speak with Dr. J. That's my hubby's doc. I wasn't eavesdropping, really I wasn't, but I couldn't help but hear the exchange. It went something like this.
She is not in her office right now.
I just want to speak with her for a minute.
She has a full schedule of appointments this afternoon.
I just need to speak with her for a moment.
She will be back in her office....
Can I speak with her now just for a moment?
After a few variations of this the receptionist was a bit worn down and asked?
And you are?
And he replied--
The receptionist then sent him downstairs to the lunchroom.
