When Can You Come In For A Follow Up?

I returned a call from the doctor’s office at the hospital.

“Hi, I’m returning your call.”

“Yes, when can you come in for a follow up visit?”

“Well, I live in LA so I can’t.”


“…so…I can’t make a follow up visit.”

“Okay. Is Wednesday good, say 10am?”

“It’s not, I live in Los Angeles. In California.”

“How about Friday at 11am?”

“I can’t make a follow up visit. I’m not in Ohio. I was back temporarily because I ran out of money, stuff you really, really need in California. That’s the beauty of big Catholic families. Somebody always has a room.”

“O)K, neither one works. Why don’t you suggest a time?”

“I’m..saying..I..don’t..live..there..and..I can’t..come..in..ever..unless..my..plane..crashes.. into..your..fountain..someday.”

“OK, so you called us. What can I do for you?”
