Reminds me of a medical helpline I rang earlier, after listening to all the options, told me to press X, it then repeated the entire process again, just in case I didn't get it the first time..
Then, after another long speell, my options was either:
Well, its something else..
What earth shattering advice do I get:
"Contact your doctor"..
Well, that was a waste of time !
Which I told my dentist it would be..
But at least now I can confirm, I did ring the helpline number, and now can they help me..
My dentist is now open and shocked that I haven't been to have my tooth fixed..
Well, you was closed for months, and I didn't want to catch covid19 then, as I didn't know a lot about it..
Plus, now the pain is a 7 out of 10 and nothing seems to help, I can't sleep and wonder how many more days before exhaustion kicks in..
But I do now have an appointment (Baring bad weather, since I live on an island..) next week.
You might ask, why didn't I ask my doctor, well my doctor refused to answer any medical questions or offer any help because its tooth related, and that is the dentists domain..
Anyhow, I managed more by luck than effort, to find another doctor, who told me officially, they couldn't help me either..
And then unofficially did, hurray !
So I at least got a dentist appointment.
So as long as I don't drop dead before then, things should be fine.
Though I guess you can always drop dead whilst having your tooth out right..
Or the ferry could sink..
Or the dentist could die before you get there..
Why do you never hear of drone attacks on call centres ?
I mean, how hard is it to trace a call !
