that's a movie/tv reference. any takers?
two things about my titles. a) i'm not shouting. kristen thinks i'm shouting, but i'm not. i just thought it would be funny to put my titles in all caps since i don't use caps in my posts. and 2) i think i'm done with this series of "the one where..."'s. it only slightly an homage to 'friends,' and moreso just boredom. ok, back to the rage.
FREAKIN DENTAL SCHOOL!!! sorry virginia. but DANGIT! ok, so of course last friday, i had all of my wisdom teeth out. it was a great experience, i was very pleased, and my doctor was attractive, so that helped. today, i had an appointment for a post-op checkup at 1pm. so i took a HALF day off from work. i was there at 10-til-1, signed in, and proceeded to wait for TWO. FREAKING. HOURS. i mean, seriously, people came in to have their wisdom teeth out that showed up, went in for surgery, and came out and left while i was still sitting there. i read EIGHT different time magazines in there (and i think...I THINK...somebody doesn't like george w. just a hunch.) and had to frequently go out and take walks. BUT i never went more than 20 feet away, so that i could hear if they called my name. so finally, i went out in the hall because this baby was driving me nuts, and i see virginia, who i had called two and a half hours before about lunch, and proceed to BEGIN a conversation with her, when the oral surgery secretary walks out. she sees me and smiles. 'did you just finish?' she asks. i weakly smile, 'no.' 'THEY HAVEN'T CALLED YOU YET?' 'no,' again with a slight smile. i'm really a nice guy. so she goes running back, and beckons me to follow. i go in, thinking 'ok i'm gonna be in here about a half an hour, and then i can eat.' i sit in my chair, wait another six minutes for the doc to show up (not the attractive one, but a dude), asks me if i'm in pain, looks in my mouth, gives me a syringe......and i'm done. three minutes, 26 seconds.
the rage still has not subsided. it has now been about 30 minutes since i left the office. maybe i should get something to eat....
