I have a very unique number. It looks like it could be for a law firm or a hotline of sorts. I get a lot of phone calls. I get phone calls from people thinking I am a church (I had one guy call me two times about the funeral for a guy in Sacramento) to a hospital.
I used to pick up and tell people they had the wrong number or mess with people. I don’t anymore. One late night I got a phone call from a lady. She was frantic sounding. Something bad had happened. She said something about a gun shot to her arm. I told her that she needed to call 9-11. Now, I just let it go to VM.
I don’t know why I haven’t written about this sooner, I’ve had this number since high school, but today I got a message that I couldn’t help but share. I
“Hi, this is Jane Doe, I also need to pick up films from my, uh, CTs that I had on October 6th. Its of my brain. Um, I will also be picking up the one on the 13th at the same time. Um, it will be later this afternoon, about 3:00 O’clock. My number is xxx-xxx-xxxx if you have any questions.”
I do have some questions:
- Sounds like you have either just called or called this number in the past, but yet you got it wrong. Try redial?
- You’re “also” picking up these two separate CT scans. What else are you coming here for?
- What is going on with your brain? I’m a little concerned that this is serious damage. It didn’t tip you off when my answering machine wasn’t for a hospital or wherever you got you CT scans?
- Don’t hospitals usually tell you when to come get the film?
