They’re scaring me

Moving to a new city means you have to find new doctors.

I picked one, pretty much at random, from the insurance company list. He seemed like a nice guy at our first visit.

However – when I called today to get a prescription renewed, I was placed on hold. At first this did not bother me; I know the staff has to spend all day working insurance issues (what a country!), and I just had to wait while they finished taking care of someone else.

The hold music was an eight-bit version of Für Elise. Over and over again for several minutes. If I didn’t need drugs when I called, I sure needed something afterward.
