I must be a magnet for stupid people

So, for the second time this week, I’ve had to call someone in Socal for medical records. For the second time, I’ve found them to be totally STUPID.

Let’s discuss the conversations….

First conversation with Riverside Medical clinic…
me: ” hi. I need records faxed to a doctor in NY.”
Them: Ok, just stop by the records room and sign this form, and we’ll get that done.
me: I can’t.
Them: “you can’t?”
me: “I’m in NY. yes, the state. I can’t just stop over on Arlington Avenue.
them: Oh, wow.

yeah. form central, faxed here and faxedback.

Second conversation with CHOC

me: Hi. I need records of Isaac’s surgery that was done in 2004 faxed to another doctor.
them: ok, then go to the doctor, get the form and bring it in.
me: I’m in NY. I can’t just bring it in.
them: well, then, no records.
me: well, can’t I send a letter requesting this?
them: No. you need to get a form. wait. you’re in NY?
me: yes.
them: oh, I guess we’ll send the form.

And that was the 2nd conversation because I had to call back because the first wackjob receptionist thought I was on a cell phone and hung up on me, even though I was calling from my land line.

See? stupid people magnet.

    Oh my goodness! People really make me laugh sometimes…even though it’s so annoying to actually deal with someone that stupid.
