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