Rung up to day to book my lad an appointment to get new braces

He broke the other ones during half term (before any one says anything i am paying £80 for new ones)

Any who i asked if i could have the last appiontment of the day as i dont want ds to miss a whole day of school for a 20 minute appointment

The sodding lady on the phone CLEARLY said " we like to try and keep the last appiontments empty because the nurses like to go home early on a friday confused WTF wouldnt be all

Its not as if it closes at 8pm the last clinic is at 3:45 shock

I challaned her and said what did you just say you purposley keep the last slot emepty do every one can leave early she tried to back track and say she didnt say it when i told her i was on a iphone and had recored the phone call he relented and booked the slot WTF is going on in the NHS ffs shoddy shoddy shoddy oh is a nurse in private hospital and he could never ever get away with this i think most people dont even relise the clinc is open till 3:45 because they have been strearing people to lunch time appointments cant ruddy believe it

Good thinking saying you were recording it too! Yes it's a white lie, but they were lying first (they started it, ner ner grin)

This thread is confusing.

You do sound a bit confrontational.

Could you maybe call again tomorrow and appeal to her good nature to see what other possibilities there are?

Olivia has the best eyebrows on the whole of mn. Fact.

I am also confused?! Why are OP's posts being deleted and what is with all the hmm

This is all very confusing. Who is supposed to have learning difficulties? Respondents or the OP? OP please clarify as I cannot work out what on earth you meant or who your half baked and rather offensive comment was aimed at.

"Olivia has the best eyebrows on the whole of mn. Fact."

ZenNudist i am finding unless you have perfect spelling and grammer mumsnet can become a hostile place its hard enough when you have to fill in forms and you can see people looking like omg the women cant spell its hard when i cant help ds with homework because i more likey to mAke him get things wrong

But you cant even vent with out picking out that my grammer and spelling are bad somthing i have known for the whole of my life some people are just like that i guess ZenNudist what can you do

I need to vent i post i need advice i post i wont let mt spelling effect me any more i dont care whAt others have to sAy

countrykitten Mon 25-Feb-13 19:09:58

OP made rather unsavoury comments about people with learning difficulties. Think that the whole damn thread should go tbh.

countrykitten Mon 25-Feb-13 19:11:02

And if OP you have problems yourself - why write offensive posts like that?

Sunnywithshowers Mon 25-Feb-13 19:11:06

YABU for calling people twats.

The op managed to book the appointment, in the available 3:45 slot. She didn't want a lunchtime slot if possible, as her ds would have missed school. They initially said they 3:45 slot was free but they couldn't have it because the nurses wanted to get down the pub clock off early.

Loads of places finish early on a Friday BTW

Domjolly Mon 25-Feb-13 19:13:29

countrykitten i didnt i ment to say i didnt know only people with out learing diffculties were allowed to post but i missed the word OUT out so it came out wrong

When the OP mentioned learninf difficulties she was refferring to HERSELF in response to criticism of her grammar and spelling. She just muddled up her sentence, which she corrected in the next post.

She meant, "What, so people with learning difficulties aren't allowed to post now are they?" in response to "YABU your spelling is shit".

Oh, what? The OP gets to be disablist and i get deleted?!

Come on!

Tee2072 Mon 25-Feb-13 19:13:49

I don't care if you can't spell or punctuate.

I do care that you lied to the woman about doing something that is illegal anyway.

If they are busy enough they are booked until april then surely you should just be pleased to be offered an appointment rather than being fussy over when it is?

I can understand them wanting to fill up the day rather than have 'spaces' i thought that was pretty much standard procedure?

Domjolly Mon 25-Feb-13 19:14:45

So i understand why it got deleted to be fair i did repost what i was ment to say underneath but people only saw the posts they wanted to see

Your post was uncalled for slatternly, if you had read the thread properly, and the subsequent post you would have realised that the OP wasn't being disablist.

I saw it Domjolly :0

Sorry, smile

Domjolly Mon 25-Feb-13 19:17:38

HeadfirstForHalos thank you people only read the posts that suits them i clearly corrected my post straight after but hay ho

Sirzy the school have been being quite funny and are insisting because they finsh school at 2:15 that they can get appoitments after school and to be fair they can because they dont close till 3:45
