Some of my readers may be wondering why I didn't call instead of email. Well, you see, he can't remember his voice-mail code. So, he can't retrieve voice-mails. I have no explanation for why he hasn't gotten in touch with IT or whoever to get a new code. I have suspicions that he's already done that so many times that they've told him to get lost, but these are only suspicions. The only other numbers I have are the main clinic number, and I'd rather not antagonize the receptionists and clerks (yet), and his pager number which, no matter how pissed off I am, I'm not going to abuse with non-emergencies.
I suspect there are going to be regular entries from me psyching myself up for the "here are the many ways in which I have found your behavior to be unacceptable" conversation coming up in June.
