Okay, You Slackers!

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!

    Ah – the perks of a broken rib! And your flower photos are gorgeous! Kudos to your DDS.

    • Yeah, I thought that was quite a treat. A few months ago, I got 30 toothbrushes and a ream of paper because they have a once a month drawing for their teacher patients. So as people, they pass. Now if they were not dentists!

    Your dentist should be congratulated. What a wonderful example of going an extra mile. They are wonderful flowers too. I hope that your trip in a month’s time doesn’t show up something that needs attention!!!

I would love to hear from you!
