I’m an idiot

8:35am, the phone rings. Caller ID says it’s Mr. Dentist.

Yeah, yeah, I have an appointment tomorrow, I grumble. Just once I wish you’d trust me to remember it on my own.

I pick up the phone. "Hello?"

"This is Mr. Dentist’s office. We were expecting you at 8:30 this morning."

Um.

Now I really do have an appointment tomorrow, and my patient record has probably been annotated: Forgot appointment. Punish w/half-strength novocaine.
