Fucking Doctors, Always Late For Appointments

ME (thinking to myself): The appointment was at 9:15, now it’s 10:00 and the doctor’s not even here yet, what kind of asshole doesn’t bother to show up when he has patients waiting?

RECEPTIONIST: Excuse me!  All of you here?  The doctor’s not showing up until 11:00….

ME (grumbling): Asshole.

RECEPTIONIST: …because he had an emergency heart patient on the other side of town and the patient is finally stabilized.

ME: Okay, maybe there’s a reason doctors aren’t always on time.

    I did the same thing with my brain surgeon.

    Obstetricians – also frequently late. Because other patients can be having more time-critical unscheduled requirements (like a baby problem) and a routine exam doesn’t beat that. Frustrating though. Understandable but frustrating.
