A Rant And A Rave Wednesday


Is it me or do you also hate having to give your whole life's healthy history to a receptionist? Then, to add insult to injury, you spend fifteen minutes filling out paperwork for the doctor and he never even looks at it? Just comes into the room and says, "So what's going on?" Ahem, READ THE PAPERWORK.

:::deep breath:::


I'm starting some online Christmas shopping and I cannot tell you how much I love free shipping. Because it's the pesky shipping fees that make online shopping a guilty pleasure. I'm really hoping lots of stores will go with this trend over the holiday season. Not that I have any idea what to buy the kids. If you have teens in your life, what's on your list for them? Maybe I can steal some ideas.


  1. If it's like most cases, you go back in six months for some other reason and you have to fill out the paperwork all over again. Ever make you want to hand the doctor a clipboard and say, "Here, doc tell me everything you just did for me and how you're going to help me feel better"?

  2. I am SO with you on that, Heather. Very annoying. And then the doctor will ask you if you have allergies, etc as he's writing out the prescription. Argh!

    Free shipping rocks, though. :)

    Mystery Writing is Murder

  3. Mason C, isn't it amazing how much doctor's don't know sometimes? Scary!

    Elizabeth, I know! That's just what I mean. Why do we have to do all the paperwork?????

    And Theo, too late. Mwa-ha-ha!

  4. OMG, this happened to me last week. I just looked at the doctor and said it's all there, especially since I gave them a printout of my medical history.

    Have you signed up for Amazon Prime? There's a fee associated with it, but I love it. I get my packages in 2 days or less and I don't have to spend $25.

    My thirteen year old nephew wants an iPod, games for his Playstation, team sports sweathsirt, money and a Blackberry.

  5. Dru, I haven't done AP yet. I'll have to--that's a great deal. And a hoodie is a great idea!
