Waiting rooms are aptly named too. :rolleyes:
You wait, and wait, and wait.

I have a friend who is a contractor. They got sick of that waiting game so one day when they had an appointment and arrived ten minutes early thinking they'd get in early, they ended up sitting in the waiting room for two hours. Finally, they got up, informed reception of that time thing, grabbed the business card of reception and the new Doctor and left.
She then had her billing department bill the Doctor for two hours of her valuable time. Using her company invoice of course.
After it had arrived, she got this call from that same Doctor. He was outraged, threatening not to pay, chewing her out for daring to bill him, and on and on.
When he'd settled down she asked him if she could ask a question, he said yes.
She asked, if she would have skipped the appointment would he have billed her?
Yes, of course! He replied.
Then she explained. She's a professional who has commitments in the field. She had an appointment at such and such a time, and had arrived early only to sit and wait for two hours without being called for her appointment meeting. She was owed for her time wasted as much as he would be if she'd skipped the appointment.
After that, when she had an appointment she would come in the Doctor's entrance at the back of the office and she'd be seen immediately!
I'd have gone in to reception and the waiting room just so people could see how it works. If they asked, I'd tell them. Send those bills for wasting your time waiting! This could be you! :p :LOL:

I can appreciate what a restaurant like Chick-fil-A believes in but just because they are a Christian chain, doesn't mean they have to be my default place of eating. If I want to eat somewhere, I'll eat at a place where I actually like their food. I've eaten at Chick-fil-A once, the chicken sandwich was fine (Wendy's is better) and their fries were not good. Just because they are Christian doesn't mean I have to be obligated to support them by eating there.

You must not live close to a very friendly chick-fil-a. I’ve never had a bad experience there and they are always nice and say “it’s my pleasure” when you say “thank you”. Now granted i don’t eat there all the time, but I do appreciate their chicken nuggets more than anywhere else. Plus their sweet tea is right there alongside McAlisters Deli sweet tea.

WARNING:

if you have a Keurig coffee maker, DO NOT put hot cocoa pods in it!! They leave a thick sludge in the machine, which clogs up the water pipes.

I found that out this morning, when I tried making coffee and it wouldn't work because the pipes were clogged. Had to run hot water through it FOUR times before it finally cleared..

I have just two threads of my own, both went off topic at some point.
Both include old animosities
both got personal despite my pleas
both held invectives
both showed some bitterness
both showed love
both showed an intelligent gallery of posters
one showed a troll.


Marvellous idea, a thread with no topic.
