I'm in Southern AZ. The weather has been pretty strange here - up and down from a high of 48 to a high of 80 a week later. Today it was in the 70s and next week the high is supposed to be 57 on Tuesday. My poor body is so confused. Make up your mind, weather. What season is it? But I'm definitely jealous of your lovely cool summers and the moisture!

I took the afternoon off work because I had a dentist appointment at 2:00. I ended up leaving a little earlier and meeting a good friend for lunch and then went over at 2:00. Only to be informed that my appointment was at 1:00 and the hygienist had left because I was her last appointment of the day and I wasn't there at my scheduled time. I pointed out several times that my appointment was at 2:00 and was treated very rudely with multiple comments about how I wasn't there on time. I tried to find the appointment card in my purse but couldn't find it so I wasn't quite sure if I was wrong or she was, but I clearly remembered discussing 2:00 when I scheduled the appointment. She wanted to reschedule me the next week and tried to get me to leave work early again and I told her I would not be leaving early, she would need to find a time that was convenient for me. Eventually we found a time that would work.
When I got home DH asked if I was wrong, or the office was, and I told him I wasn't sure. So I checked the messages on the house phone (which I never use these days and is pretty much just a message machine since I never answer it and don't always even check the messages). I have a recording of the scheduler letting me know she had a cancellation at 1:00 and asking if I could come earlier than scheduled, and leaving a call back number. I never got the message so certainly did not respond. Somehow they thought it was okay not only to change my appointment time without confirming, but also to send the hygienist home because I wasn't there an hour early, and then treating my rudely when I told her my appointment was at 2:00!!!
I called back and asked to speak to the office manager and was told she was unavailable. The same idiot receptionist kept saying she wasn't sure where the confusion came from (I pointed out that there was absolutely no confusion, it was clear what had happened) and telling me she had made it up to me by finding me an open appointment next week. I tried to point out the flaw in that she had already given me the open appointment before she ever knew what she had done and asking to speak to the office manager just to be told that she would be "in and out." I told her I expected a call from her before the end of the day. It is now 15 minutes before they close and I have yet to hear from her.
Looks like I will be in the market for a new dentist.
