Do you hate the secretary at your family doctors?

I hate mine. She is an oozing blob that sits there and moves at the pace of a snail. I don't know if I'm the only one she isn't curteous to, but I sometimes thinks she does things slowly for the sake of [italic]spiting[/italic] you. Sometimes I want to take her keyboard and smash on her gargantuan gargoyle-like face. Discuss.

I love mine although - you never ever want to piss off the woman who manages access to your care provider.

But I do have an image of you in my head: hands on hips, toe-tapping and letting out deep sighs of impatience.

Maybe she moves slow because she's fat. Or do you think she's fat to spite you as well, OP?

I took my grandfather to his dentist appointment a few months back. After waiting a half hour past our 11am appointment my grandfather questioned the receptionist. She announced that we had gotten our time wrong and that the appointment was at 11:30am and it would still be a few more minutes.

There was another day in the waiting room for a while and she then questioned a second receptionist who ad just returned to the desk. That receptionist told her the same story about getting the appointment time wrong. (she hadn't heard the first receptionist lie to us)

I said out loud that it was very unusual that the two patients in the waiting room would both get their appointment times wrong and that it was obvious the game they were playing. We all left and found different dentist.

Curteous. Oh dear.

She hates you, OP, because of your atrocious spelling skills.

Oh my God yes. She is super religious and is only nice to other religious types (Hasidic Jew). I actually overheard her saying she has to talk to patients like they're two years old because otherwise they won't listen to her. The doc is ok though.

The "secretaries" at my doctor's office are two queens, so we get along just fine.

At my dentist there's usually a 'settling' time of about fifteen minutes before the agreed appointment time. Often this is extended by five, ten minutes. Fine, I suppose, that's what the pile of 'National Geographics' are there for.

Recently I arrived well into the 'settling' time thinking no problem. Naturally there was a new girl at the desk who officiously told me I was five minutes late, and had missed my appointment, but (reluctantly) I might just be fitted in. The dentist himself was fine with it. Just a check-up anyway.

Next appointment: at least thirty-five minutes after the agreed time. 'National Geographic' proved surprisingly diverting.

OP - is your doctor a therapist for anger management?

Luckily, I just have to roll over to see my doctor. However, I do loathe is secretary. It's mutual.

Yes, they are gross, fat, and always have giant gulp cups of soda and food in their work area. They act like they are doing you a favor and are slow and inefficient.

Don't you nitwits understand that the "secretary" does what her/his boss wants?
