Where does the good go

How is this my life?

My primary care physician referred me to a specialist at the hospital where my mom used to work.

I called and they gave me a new patient appointment six weeks into the future, so naturally, I wrote it down and promptly forgot all about it. 5 weeks and 6 days hence, I’m all… oh yeah, I gotta go to that doctor tomorrow. Huh… I should probably ask my mom about the doctor. So, at midnight, after I got back from a wild and crazy Monday night out (@_@) I call my mom and ask:

“So, do you know Dr. Katherine Mercedes?”

And she’s all “No, I don’t think so. Who is that?”

“Doctor at your old hospital.”

“OH. KATHY MERCEDES? SHE’S THE WORST! DON’T GO ANYWHERE NEAR HER. SHE’S AN IDIOT AND A BITCH. SHE’S TERRIBLE…. Why are you asking?”

UM. O_o

So, yeah, evidently she’s hates this woman and this woman hates her and I have to go to this appointment in 6 hours. My mother very helpfully said “I wouldn’t go. But if you go, I wouldn’t let her know we’re related.”

Now, it’s way too late to cancel without paying money and I have to go, BUT I LOOK EXACTLY LIKE MY MOTHER! Plus, she’s my emergency contact!

Yeah, I cry.

And the moral of this story is ______________?

    . . . you should always tell your mother everything about your life no matter how insignificant because you never know.

    You know, based on your tweet and the headline, I thought something bad had happened. This is just the beginning of a potentially amusing anecdote.

    Never go to doctors.

    I can’t wait for Dr. Katherine Mercedes to google her own name and find this post. Hilarity will ensue.
