I learned something very strange, today...

When you get a call from the hospital, telling you that you have a procedure scheduled for 10:30...

And your online itinerary says 10:30 as well...

You are supposed to telepathically -- nay, fucking magically know that you are supposed to be there for 9.

But that way, you get to have the blank-faced receptionist stare at you like you are a fucking moron, and say "well.. too bad for you."

No port for me today. Another week of waiting and anxiety until I finally get to have this god damned procedure. You know when I finally get to go for it? On tuesday. Right about when I should be feeling okay again, after all this chemo shit. FUCK. MY. LIFE. Fuck cancer, fuck the hospital, fuck snarky receptionists, fuck everything.

I don't have the time or the energy to deal with this crap. I don't have the energy to deal with the stuff that comes unavoidably. I don't need any more shit added from surly assholes who hate their jobs.

Well... shit. I'm sorry, that's fucking ridiculous. :S

I'm convinced that every receptionist everywhere hates their job and takes it out on the clients, whoever they may be.

Well shit! Since when is the hospital the damn airport?! I mean... everybody knows that you need to show up at 8 for an 11:00 flight, but at the damn hospital?! Christ!

(And the sign posted at the Tavern states: "If assholes could fly... ...this place would be an airport!")
