Wasted days and wasted nights….

fenderWell it was bound to happen at some point…today is the first time where I really felt my time was wasted by the bariatric center. I left my appointment today feeling that I wasted almost a full week in the process. Now I am looking at this through my side of the glass house….but WTF?! I get the news last Tuesday morning that I am ready to go and Anthem will pony up the cash when the time comes. The next step in the process is for me to come in and pay the remaining $125 that I owe them (In the Ukraine this is equal to two goats, a steaming pot of borsht and a loaf of stale bread or about 100,000 kopiyok) and discuss what dates would NOT work for the surgery. This couldn’t be handled over the phone last week when they called me to tell me all is good with Anthem? For fuck’s sake…I waited 6 days to go in pay a $125 and tell them that I am good to go as soon as they are able get me an open table. This all could have been handled with a 5 minute phone call. Now I have to wait an additional 1 to 2 weeks for everything to get scheduled. I was really optimistic that I was going to be able to get this done by early to mid April. I am not sure that this will be the case now, I will be lucky if this is done by the first of May.

Arrrrggghhhhhh…I have two pet peeves in life…actually I have more, but the two that are at the top of the list are inefficiency and people wasting my fucking time…Well Summa you managed to cover both in one fell swoop today.
