Okay, it's medical complaint day, I guess.

I called my GP's office to schedule a flu shot. The receptionist tells me, "We're not giving flu shots but I can schedule you an appointment."

I asked why I would need an appointment if they're not giving the shots. She proceeds to tell me that the doctor does recommend that all of his patients get a flu shot but that it's just not financially worth it for him to purchase the shots this year. The she asks again if I'd like to schedule an appointment.

"What, do you you want me to book an appointment to come see your new office?" I asked, like a smart a$$. I don't think she liked that very much!

That's weird. I have to assume she's just a moron and had instructions to ask that? I dunno.

Good for you. Sometimes I get really tired of the attitude I get from doctor's offices. It's like you're an inconvenience or something.

OK, that is just beyond strange? What did she say back to you when you asked her? I want an answer! LOL
