There must not be near as many lawyers per capita than there are here.
They were mostly eaten by bears.
Sitting and reading in the near-empty, large, quiet waiting room at the hospital and three people come in and sit right beside me and carry on a very loud conversation.
If only they could have been eaten by bears...
I don't trust doctors to inform me of all the side effects of a drug. I've had to look them up myself.
As a rule, I don’t go to my doctor to request the latest drug I see advertised on tv. I have a certain level of trust that my doctor has a vested interest in my well-being and I’m careful not to confuse my google search with his medical degree and clinical experience.
Doctors here are less independent than in the US. They are basically paid by the government. They prescribe from a list of government approved drugs. I have had mine look up drugs in a huge book that lists side effects and read them to me.
Doctor visits of course are free, and when you are over 65 so are drugs, provided you choose generic. You are free of course to pay for any name brand that are not covered.
While I do trust my doctor, they never discuss (unless asked) side effects. So if I forget, out comes google.
The doctor didn't give me something I asked for because I saw it on television. I had never heard of it. He said "I'm prescribing this for you". He did not inform me of its side effects. That is not something that encourages me to trust doctors to keep me well informed. Whenever a doctor says I should take something, I ask pointed questions.
Nothing is really free, of course.
I suspect that would have been unbearable~for the bears.
I'll just let myself out.
When websites say they're temporarily shutting down services so they can make improvements in order to serve you better.
Also, extremely rangy delivery estimates. This is for a DVR device I sent back to a provider we are no longer using.
Canada Post is also the website that will soon be making some services temporarily unavailable while they work hard to improve their service. I don't think any of these will actually be affecting me, though.
Also, also, providers who are inconveniently inconsistent in shipment options for the returning of their various devices.
For Bell, this week I had to return their Modem Hub via Purolator Courier, which involved going to a drop off box where I couldn't pick up a Tracking receipt. However, for returning their DVR, I was able to use a Canada Post Depot at our nearby local Shoppers Drug Mart, for which I did get a Tracking receipt, the results of which are in my post above.
I must have a really good physician then because if he ever writes a scrip he explains what the medication is, why he wants me to take it, side effects, interactions, etc... without me having to ask. Luckily, I only take one maintenance drug and it was prescribed by my cardiologist based on family history. The same rules applied though. He was careful to explain what it was, why he wanted me to take it (backed up by published statistics), any interactions and side effects, etc...
Your doctor sounds exceptional, Clint!
Why does a Google Chrome update require me to delete 3/4 of a GB worth of mobile phone apps? This seems rather excessive for a browser update.
A browser update requiring any app deletion seems unusual to me.
I have decided that I attract loud people in quiet rooms. While getting my wife’s car serviced at the Toyota dealership, a couple comes into the near-empty waiting area, sits down behind me, and starts watching a very loud video on one of their phones. What is wrong with people that they feel the need to sit next to strangers and be obliviously loud?! I sometimes feel like I am an unwitting extra on an episode of Jackass.
Yes this would annoy me as well- a stranger deciding to sit next to me in a room with lots of available seats.
