Mood: annoyed annoyed

got a call from the blah center for rehab (the place that Mom's at). 
the caller asked if I was Jeff H... H...

[me]has been dead for 7 years. who were you looking for?
[her]um, one moment please... (minutes pass)
[her]sorry... the cover sheet shows...
[me]that's nice the cover sheet is wrong again, first I get into an argument w/ a doctor there because it has her arriving 4 days before she actually got transferred there and now it shows Mom is a man...  wonderful...  nice... what is it you are calling about???
[her]there is a care meeting for your... mother... on Wednesday at 2PM and they were wondering if your would like to attend.
[me]I work 8x5...
[her]would you like to see if the meeting could be rescheduled?
[me](knowing that I've already got her frazzles or I would have pushed to find out the time frames for the meetings)yes
[her]I can transfer you to the social worker
[me]ok.
[her]thanks and sorry again.
[voice mail]this is blah - please leave your message after the tone.
[me](left informative and pleasant message)... thanks.
[me](to the air in the apartment) - fucknuts.

and it would have set an overly negative tone for the voice-to-voice IRL conversation that I needed to have about the id10t doctor who didn't know that Mom didn't arrive on, that particular, Tuesday when she actually arrived on Saturday... another paperwork screw up. eh.

plus they thought she was your father. i doubt electroshock therapy would help them but it might be fun to try.

I don't know; carelessness, insensitivity, the need for proper eyeglasses... striving to continue breathing in spite of the fact that someone should have put a plastic garbage bag over their head, zip-tied it tight around their necks long ago and then manacled their wrists and elbows with more zip-ties so they couldn't remove the bag...

been there with the hospital when dad was dying

when I arrived, the nurses station told me he was fine. The man in the next bed told me the crash cart had been in 2x overnight.

Doesn't sound like *FINE* to me.

sometimes - you just have to fight the people who SUCK at their jobs.
