At The Appointed Name And Time

, , , , , | Right | April 27, 2018

(I have an appointment for a blood draw first thing in the morning. I walk in and go to the automated check-in system, and it flashes back at me that it has booked me in under somebody else’s name, so I go up to the desk.)

Me: “Hi, sorry. The automated system just tried booking me in as [Other Name], but I’m actually [My Name]. You couldn’t check I’m definitely booked in, please?”

Receptionist: “Sure thing. I’m surprised the automated system ever works, to be honest.”

(She pauses for a second, then clearly tries and fails not to smile.)

Receptionist: “Yeah, okay, you’re booked in. The name you read, that’s not you; that’s who your appointment is with.”

Me: “It’s too early. That’s my excuse, and I’m sticking to it!”
