So I realized on the way to work today that it’s time for me to deal with a few issues that I’ve been avoiding. There were three (1 – doctor’s office 2 – eBay purchase 3 – insurance premium payment from a franchised restaurant). My goal was to scratch all 3 off the list before I left the office today.
I accomplished this – kinda.
1) Doctor’s office once again gave me the BS answer about “results not in yet.” I can’t bring myself to get ugly with these folks because technically the sample was taken by LabC*rp (ick), not my ob/gyn’s office and Dr. P will be the one to deliver Plan B, not LabC*rp. I did make my next appointment since, at the end of the day, the test results are only relevant on a trivial basis (the results could be that my progesterone level was 1,308* and it wouldn’t matter because I am 100% not pregnant this time). The difference is, I paid for the damned results (between my copay and the $ Cigna kicks in) and I want them! (OH! And Cigna has in fact already paid LabC*rp, the pigfuckers).
2) Sent “check up” email to seller, now I’m too chickenshit to check my email to see if she’s responded. **
3) Sent email to franchise location’s payroll clerk. The story is that we’re offering the same benefits to our franchise employees that we do to our corporate-owed location employees, but one of the franchises claims they were never told how to go about paying for these benefits. Umm, try asking?? Or even taking a wild stab in the dark and cutting a check?
Now that all is said and done, I think I kinda accomplished each of these tasks but not really. As of right now I have no lab results, no eBay item and no check from the franchise (or even an “Oh, that’s what I was supposed to do??” email response).
Oh well. At least I tried.
* Not sure, but I think a progesterone level that high would be detrimental to my health
** ETA 12/1 – Worked up courage, item to ship tomorrow. Yeeees! Merry Xmas to ME.
