Stupid People

Or Maybe It’s Just Me

Well, the sun has been out all week and just warm enough to ease the frozen claw of that wretched Old Man Winter. Just a tiny little bit.

So I was going to write with a positive tone, when something happened.

Things got stupid!

The week started off promising enough with a trip to the local theater to see Avatar in 3D. I’ll admit that the movie is gorgeous to look at, and sure, the environmental message is noble. But this one scene just got me.

To finally gain the complete trust of the Na’vi, our protagonist has to tame a Mountain Banshee (big flying dragon like thing). He does it, but then loses the trust of the Na’Vi like, 20 minutes later. However, he regains their trust by taming a Toruk (an even bigger flying dragon like thing). His alien girlfriend like, totally digs it, and takes him back cause he now has a bigger…uh…ride. When she climbs on, they take off and she screams, “YEAH!”

Or something like that.

So yeah, what the hell is the message? Save the planet, or bigger is better? Pick one!

Then I had to reschedule Doctor’s Appointment. So I call them up:

“I’d like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Blah.”
“Is it urgent?”
“No. Annual checkup. I canceled my last appointment in the fall”
“Ok. April 7 then. And don’t cancel 5 minutes before like last time.”

(When did my mother start working at the doctor’s office?)

“I gave you an hours notice.”
“When you cancel on short notice we can’t fill the spot.”
“(Fuck off) See you in April.”

I get it. Doctor’s are busy. But life happens, right?

Finally, I had an outstanding issue at work which I forwarded to my colleague to work on while I was absent. When I came in the next day, I found that he hadn’t worked on the issue at all. So I ask him:

“Didja get my email?”
“No, I didn’t.”
“Are you sure? Cause I sent it 2 days ago.”
“That’s soo weird. I don’t see it.”

So I look it over with him and it turns out that he has a filter set up to file 80% of his email into folders he never reads.

It’s been like this for a year and no one’s noticed that he never replies to anyone.

Maybe it’s me, but I just don’t know what to say to that.

Well, have a great weekend everyone!

    I haven’t seen Avatar but since all things Mr. Cameron directs are about size it doesn’t surprise me that that was the hidden message.

    I have canceled, on short notice, many Dr’s appts, I worked in a Dr’s office for many many years and we always over booked for just that reason, which is also why the doctor is always running late.

    Yep, and they’re under a lot of stress. Still, I could do without the attitude. My doctor works out of a clinic where some things are covered by medicare, and the rest is covered by the insurance from your employer (if you have it). You actually get much better service at the public hospital, and the tests are free. You just might have to wait a little longer.
