i had a pain management dr. appointment. i was unsure of my payment needed, so bf gave me a signed but blank otherwise check.
NO OTHER DR. I HAVE EVER SEEN HAS ASKED FOR DRIVERS LICENSE or OTHER INFO ON PAYMENT CHECKS.
i had filled out all my personal and i mean PERSONAL information. they had the check. i was brought into an exam room. i stayed there about 10 min. someone came in and told me i had to go out to the waiting area.
i was told they couldn't run the check and they couldn't see me today (after waiting since LAST WEEK EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE (9 or 10) kind of pain.
i started to cry. stupid marine girl crying? sorry. i am unworthy. and i left the office and came home. the office is literally around the corner from this apartment.
but i hurt like hell. still do.
and i got home and i called almost hysterical to the office. they have big practice and it took 3 people to get to the right one.... but after bitching to her and crying and stuff, she said she would call me back. AND SHE DID! she apologized for the annoyance and made me an appointment for 7:45 am TOMORROW. YEAH! (i hope i can get up in time).
and bf is giving me cash and i will get the damned check back in the am.
