One Ringy Dingy!

I never thought I would sound like my grandmother, but I miss the good old days. You remember those don't you. The days of walking to school up hill both ways in the snow :) How about the days you could call someone and an ACTUAL person answered the phone!!

All day long yesterday I tried to get through to a doctor's office because I needed to change the date of an appointment I have. I do not want to press 1 for the department I want. I don't want to press 4 for the new patient coordinator. I know if it is an emergency to hang up and call 9-1-1. If I knew the five digit extension I wanted I would press it...but I think you actually have to speak to a person to get that extension number. I'm sorry you are not at your desk. I don't know what you are doing. I do know that you are not at your desk to answer the phone! Why does it have to be so complicated to speak to an actual person. The more frustrating part is that I have to try it all over again today!

take care,

You should come an commiserate with my mother. That drives her bonkers.

Dawn, thanks for visiting my post this morning. I love that photo and your phone misery is experienced world wide. Good luck today.

I wish you had a porch too. They just can't be over-rated. Beverly's porch was added a few years ago. It was her dream and look how perfect it is. Too lovely for words. You have hope. (smile)

Blessings, Jeanne
