I had to call and cancel my regular dental cleaning because of my fractured rib. Granted, I will use just about any excuse to avoid the dentist. But I did get adequate sympathy and many “poor thing, you poor poor things” from them. So putting off the visit for another month was worth the extra sympathy I received.
What I didn’t expect was the huge bouquet of flowers delivered to my door a few days later from–you guessed it–my dentist! Better than Novocaine! Now they either see my degenerating teeth as a real cash cow, or they are very kind and compassionate and awesome at PR.
So what’s wrong with the rest of you slackers. Target, Trader Joe’s, Costco, Albertson’s, I expect some freebies delivered to my door. I am obviously a valued customer in my dentist’s estimation, so get with it and show me some love!
