Dear World; you're kidding, right?

Dear Clinic That Shall Not be Named;
If the best advice you can offer is, "Talk to a person next time," your system might be broken. Just sayin'.

Dear Pharmacy with Recorded Messages;
If the best advice you can offer is, "Talk to a person next time," your system might be broken. Yeah. Uh-huh.

Dear Forrest;
Those boxes of designer chocolates often have a map inside the top cover. Look for it.

Dear Clinic That Shall Not be Named;
Your online messaging system has major glaring weaknesses. After its failure, I suffered through listening to a recorded message while on hold - a recorded message telling me how I could "take control of my own health care" by using the online messaging system. Ahem.

Dear Pharmacy Tech;
If your recorded message tells me I have no refills left, why would I call to see if my refill is ready?

Dear Clinic:
Do you really, honestly, truly have no way of recording a concern? No way to prevent this kind of mistake from recurring?

Dear Chuck;
Can we please order take-out for supper tonight? I have no brainpower or energy left.

I used to think those automatic thingies were very useful, but because they're voice activated and it's always so noisy around here I prefer to yell at a real person.

It's awful to fight with a thing which cannot listen, and which tells you exactly what to do, repeating itself over and over . . . . no matter that the thing it tells you to do is impossible or wrong.
Yes to the take-out. The answering machine has sucked your energy and brainpower yet again. Tomorrow, just maybe, you will find the energy to locate a human to help.

Ugh. I hate it when I get the automated voice on the phone.
