It’s Gotta Go Wednesday

I appreciate a reminder call when a doctor or dentist appointment is scheduled, because even I can forget stuff.

However, shouldn’t the normal phone “rules” apply even when coming from a medical provider? While I like a reminder, I don’t particularly enjoy getting that call at 7 a.m.! A certain secretary seems to find it necessary to make all of her calls before 7:30, and if it happens to be during the summer, I might still be asleep, thank you very much.This morning I was half asleep when she called, and if I didn’t already know about the appointment, I would have no memory of what transpired.

Calling before 9 a.m. REGARDLESS of the reason (unless someone is dead or I’ve won a million dollars)… it’s gotta go.

    I think it’s only common courtesy to call someone after 9:00. There are exceptions, I agree, but reminders for medical appointments are NOT among them. It’s not like we can call them and schedule appointments before they’re open for the day. It’s a two-way street, people!

    During the school year when I have to wake up earlier to get kids up and off to school it’s not as big of a deal, especially when friends or family members that know I’m awake call. However, I still don’t like when businesses call before 9. I’m old school like that :).

    My dentist office calls early as well. I think they are all sadists.
