Don't you just hate it when.....

You have a good argument worked up in your head. You've got it all worked out. If they say this, I'm gonna say this. They will see it my way, when I get done with them. They'll be sorry!
I called the Dr office this morning asking what I needed to do to get the Boy's name changed on his medical record & most importantly, get the name changed on his immunization record. Which I need for some reason to get his SS card. They said I had to come in and talk to the medical records clerk & bring my handy dandy adoption decree. So working in the medical field I just knew ms. medical records girl would not be in a good mood, and want me to jump thru every hoop & fire ring available. AND make me wait forever and a day to get the name change on the shot record.
Well, good thing I like crow. she was so nice, took my original adoption decree, and said, "Here let me take a copy of this & I'll be right back". HMM, good, gives me more time to work up, what I'm gonna say when you get mean with me. She comes back and gushes, "Congratulations, Mrs. D, I'll have the nurse call you when they have time to change the name on the shot record, it's Monday you know." I said,"OK, can you take my cell phone #, I really need this for a SS card..." She said, "Oh, have a seat, let me see if they can do this now." After I picked myself up off the floor, I sat down. I didn't want to push my luck. Within 10 minutes she came back. She stuck out a piece of paper and again said"CONGRATULATIONS!" It was his new immunization record with his brand new name on it. I could have kissed her. But my mouth was full....I was eating crow.

I do hate that. Some of my best arguments never get used!

It stinks to have all those good comebacks and arguments go to waste. Maybe you could write them down for use in another situation. :<)

Truthfully, isn't it a blessing to run in to someone like her during your day? Sometimes I literally feel stress leaving my body by someone simply opening a door for me or looking me in the eye and sounding like they mean it when they say "Have a good day".

This is off subject,but maybe it could be a post:How have your older children handled David joining the family,has this stirred up any feelings with your daughter who was adopted?And how has this adoption differed from your other one?Im so nosey.

At least you had an argument prepared in advance, I never come up with anything good until afterwards! What a great lady!

My name is "D" too... so when I saw a comment on Antique Mommy by "D" I had to follow the link. I'm a foster parent too, and mom to 3 of my own. Come visit me! If I'm no there, it's because I'm here reading your archives...
