Just trust me, okay?

I receive calls from pharmacies, home health agencies, etc. to obtain additional information on physicians that they're lacking in their system. This is a typical conversation I have on the phone about twice a day at work. Some people really grate on my nerves....

::phone rings::

Me: "Adult Medicine, this is Megan."

Caller: "This is Bob from Kerr Drugs. I need the DEA number on Dr. Hill."

Me: "We do not have a doctor by that name here."

Caller: The doctor's name is (full name) Hill."

Me: "We do not have a doctor by that name here." (How many times must you ask??? Would I lie to you?)

Caller: ::agitated sigh:: "Well, the prescription came from DHP Pediatrics signed by Dr. Hill."

Me: "This is Adult Medicine, let me transfer you to Pediatrics."

Caller: ::silence::

Word to the wise: please listen before you speak and get an attitude with someone who is attempting to help you. You look like a monkey and smell like one too.

I just have to say that that picture in the right hand corner is the most beautiful picture ever. The most beautiful woman on this planet standing in front of the most beautiful baseball field on this planet. What a glorious combination! It's almost too much beauty to take in.
