I fear incompetent people.

The First Law is that you can be, do and have whatever you can imagine. The Second Law is that you attract what you fear.  Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1" December 14 - page 54

Damned it.  I fear incompetent people, especially those that work in doctor's offices.  One of my doctors has a nurse that has a competency deficency.  Especially when it comes to my medications.
We have gone round and round, I have complained, I have screamed, I have prayed, I HAVE PRAYED, and the woman could screw up an order for aspirin.  I would just once like to hit her on the head with an iron skillet, maybe it would repair whatever damage is up there, it certainly could not hurt her any more.  Oh, LORDY, I need to pray some more.  Tonite she has struck again, she ordered a brand medicine, when my chart says to always order the generic.  The brand costs ME $80.26.  The generic is 6.30.  I called her this afternoon and told her rather LOUDLY that she had screwed up again, I caught my breath, apologized, and asked her to call my mail pharmacy and make the correction, we went over this carefully and I thought she had it down.  I checked the order online and DAMNED if she did not screw it up again, she not only ordered the same med at the same price, but ordered an additional medication that is a generic for another blood pressure medication for a total of 90.78.  I think I have put a hold on this order for 24 hours, but won't know until after 9:30 AM tomorrow.  I swear, it's like the Katznjammers are in charge at my endocronologists office.  And I feel like I'm going to have to call out Alley Oop or Popeye to help me.   I just need to turn this over, PRAY about it, and get my blood pressure down before I stroke out.  Right now I need some of PAMs attitude, just get through this day and handle tomorrow when it gets here.  God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the tthings I can and the Wisdom to know the difference.  The prayer is not God Grant me the courage to kill the people that piss me off when my Serenity is challenged, and the Wisdom to hide the body.....................  You know that one.  I just have never acted on that and with the ability to stay sober, I never will.  Thank God for sobriety.  It Rocks.

Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, my Higher Power
  • My sobriety
  • Mamie, my schnauzer
  • My sponsor
  • Petey, my God-dog. (Joes' pup)
  • Joe is going to the physical rehab center at St Joseph's hospital within the next two days.
  • Two party invitations today.
  • Not falling, almost but not, at the movie when I stood up this afternoon.
  • God working in my life.
  • Friends
  • Family
  • All y'all
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

I must admit that incompetence is frustrating. I strive for patience and compassion; however, there are moments when all that goes out the window. I just do my best to remain quiet and pause when agitated.

At least you're sober.

How frustrating. Surely, you did not pray for patience.....

Just take a deep breath.

Hope it gets straightened out soon.

How many remember the Katzenjammer Kids...or are they still going strong?

Incompetence in others is frustrating in ME. But Zane, you've got the right attitude. Just keep listening to People like Pam and others in your circle, and act as...

Bless you, buddy!
