Okay, I know that I have a review blog but the topic I’ll be talking about has nothing to do with books or reviewing. I’m talking about going the lady doctor. We’ve all been there, right? Not a pleasant experience but we have to do it.
Well, for the people that don’t know, I grow up in Dallas and moved away from there about 5 years ago. My doctor told me under no circumstances was I to use a quack in the small town that I was moving to. (He actually has a lake house in my town, so he knows the doctors) Anywoos, every year I drove the hour back to Dallas, in traffic, wait forever it seems, go in and I’m out a hour later. Well yesterday appointment was far from that.
I actually got there early thinking this will be quick. Wrong!!!! Its OB day at the doctor’s. Don’t get me wrong, I loved being pregnant and we wished that we had more than one child but it wasn’t in the plan for us. Of course, getting their early only made me wait even longer. What should have been an hour appointment, took 2 hours of waiting and then finally going to the back.
While I was waiting, two mothers (pregnant, no less) all of sudden realized that their other children were at the same playgroup/daycare. Here’s were I get snarky…I felt like I was in soccer mom hell. On and on did they talk about their kids, their teachers, lunching together soon and on and on. Gag! I felt like I was going to gag on the sugary, airkiss, OMG fakery between these women. I mean, really at the gyn/ob’s office? I grew up in Dallas right by the Galleria Mall and I don’t remember my mother being such a pretentious snob like these two women. I really don’t mean to be a mean person but come on? I never realized how fake Dallas is until that moment.
I complain about living in the sticks and being away from all the conveniences that I grew up with but yesterday experience just made me appreciate the fact that I don’t live in a city anymore and that I didn’t become one of the pretentious snobs like those two women.
Feel free to flog me, ignore me or hate me. p.s. Jon is too pretty not to show yall. ***sigh***
