I Always Find a Reason To Be Irritated!

Here’s a fairly new meme going around.

The Rules

1. List two things that irritate you for a reason (and list the reason!), and two things that irritate you for no apparent reason whatsoever!!
2. Give credit to the person who tagged you.
3. Link your answers to the original blog. (http://www.just-thinkin.net)
4. Tag four new people to participate.


Irritates me for a reason:

1. Waiting more than an hour in a medical professional’s office.

If they weren’t just trying to cram as many patients as possible into a day, they wouldn’t schedule patients so closely together than when a bonafide emergency screws up their schedule it screws up everybody’s schedule.

When it the last time you had a scheduled appointment with a medical professional and you took more than an hour with them in the room?

My suggestion would be that they just give me an appointment for Tuesday from 1-5 p.m., when I get there I can take a number (or not) and be served in order.

Yes, I have walked out on appointments. I have explained why I am leaving to the receptionist.

They don’t care, the docs, don’t know/don’t care.

2. Dumbasses at four way stop signs.

Here’s how it should work: First to arrive and stop is first to proceed. If it’s a tie, yield to the person on the right.

Here’s how it actually works. Driver to might right is stopped. I roll up to stop sign and stop, driver makes eye contact with me and either E. motions me to proceed or F. decides then that it is safe for s/he to proceed.

Therefore, I purposefully Do NOT may eye contact, if they sit there, I go. If they move, I wait. There is no chivalry in driving a**holes, there are laws.

Irritates me for no apparent reason

1. I have a bump on my arm that has been there for a couple years. It looks odd, doesn’t get worse, doesn’t get better. Something is irritating me for no apparent reason.

2. Ragweed. That stuff gets up my nose and just raises hell. WTF is up with that?

I Always Find a Reason To Be Irritated! — 6 Comments

  1. I was a medical receptionist for 5+ years. Trust me, they (for the most part DO care that the doc’s schedules are so tight and that the patients walk out. Medical receptionists are constantly begging their docs to open their schedules up…but the docs don’t listen. They are convinced that waiting patients is an anomaly, and that if the schedules aren’t so full, that they will sit around doing nothing most days. It’s even more annoying when the doc calls in the in the morning and tells you to reschedule all 40 patients for that day so he can go ____ (fish/golf/watch a movie/go on a trip).

    It is incredibly annoying and disrespectful. 1st for the receptionists who are the ones that have to deal with the disgruntled patients and not bad mouth their boss at the same time… and next for the patients who have to act as though they have nothing better to do than wait for their doctor.

    The receptionists only seem like they don’t care because if they acted emotionally upset over every disgruntled patient, there would be no way to get through the day. It’s a vicious cycle.

    Anyway. It’s a good thing to get irritated at…especially since it’s only getting worse most places, not better.

  2. @Kim: thanks for an insiders opinion. Docs and their office managers don’t see themselves as having to provide “customer service” and for the most part they don’t.

    Some of the blame also lies with people who over-use a physician’s time. I have been in offices where people are on a first name basis with not only staff, but other patients. It’s social to them.

  4. Now why didn’t this show up in my Dashboard? I tell you, Blog Search And technorati back lnks are just about useless these days.

    Anyway, good points all around. I got a flesh tag on my posterior that showed up years ago for no reason. No matter how much sandpaper I use, it just won’t come off.

    Bet you needed to know that.

  6. @Kirk: so are you irritated at Technorati for no good reason? Flesh tags? Just snip ’em with scissors – if I can reach them and if they are where the public can see them. Which I guess is the reason you are sanding your ass?
