What a bloody irritating morning!  After a 12 hour fast, i presented myself at the doctors', clutching my urine sample - to find my 0845 appointment wasn't on their list.  Some stupid twat had either not put on the right day or changed it and not told me, but i had been moved to this Wednesday.  To say i was annoyed would be this month's understatement and i didn't bother to hide it.  The following Doctor's appointment was the same, so at least.  This is my annual diabetic review and it should have been bloods, blood pressure & urine sample today, followed by the actual review on 24th.   i hate getting up early [unless it is to go somewhere nice, like on holiday] and as it was chilly and dank, i was even less pleased.  i came home and had some cereal & coffee for my meds, then went back to bed for a couple of hours.
i was up when the postie came and when the gardeners cut the grass... at different parts of the morning!  i had a late lunch at 2pm and felt much better; ham & tomato and cheese & tomato toasteds.
i found some nice seahorse piccies, specially for seahorse lovers, and i'm posting some of the good cartoons... and the amazing Jet Li

Even more irritating when you have to do it all again two days later!

I love the cartoon cat! Those seahorses are rather gorgeous too aren't they!

Also (dammit!) clicked post before I'd said how annoying about the GP appointment!

Yes, i adore the Siamese kitty... we had Siamese in NZ, lovely cats. My Mum loved seahorses, so we had them scattered around the house in various forms.
Annoying to have to do it all again, this morning. At least the Nurse wasn't one of those stick-thin nutritionists... but i do have to get back on the diet again. Weight [at 110 kgs] has come down but not enough. *sigh*

Is everybody becoming more incompetent or am I imagining it? :( Gorgeouseahorses and lol at the banker. :D

No, i don't think you are imagining it. It is symptomatic of the times, i'm afraid; too much in a hurry, not enough care and attention. And of course, most don't give a flying f*** about those they 'serve', like it's beneath their dignity or some stupid thing. Like that weird optometrist, they see themselves as being put upon, rather than supplying the service they are BEING PAID to do, and do it well, with a cheerful visage. How many times have we seen the shopgirl or guy, stuff your purchase in a bag with a bored expression? Check-out personnel in supermarkets can be as bad. Why do they think they are above such occupations? We can't all be rock stars and astronauts... It's a JOB, people - if you hate it so much, do something else! And don't get me started on bus drivers!
