    Don't sweat the small stuff. I learned that with my cancer. I just do and go to and see places/people etc that fit in with my world. There usually are other choices around so we don't have to do all the angst.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I have a cattle dog x - and she can put her paws on the receptionists' bench and look over the top - I don't know how she can stretch that far but she's pretty good at tippy toes - and they can't help themselves - it's way too cute...

    Dogman. I am 5 years remission now, considered cured. Thank you though for caring. Through it though my world shrank to what and whom mattered to me and I still continue with that philosophy. If someone was providing a service, eg vet and I wasn't happy, stuff going into battle with them, they just do not get my money anymore and I would move to somewhere else I was more comfortable with. Just my opinion though.

    That is a great way to go about things I reckon. I wish I could be more like that... although I do find that the more often crap things happen... the less I seem be bothered fighting it, so I just either shut it out of my life or accept it and move on.

    But as you said, everyone is different with different opinions, which is totally fine.

    Good to hear that you're considered cured too!

    I dunno Dogman

    Maybe send it again and put personal confidential and the vet's name on it.

    I'm not sure I'd go back to a place that makes me feel angry.

    (Mum, are you paying attention?).

    I've already started looking elsewhere...the vet could have rang me too...their silence condemns them.

    Yeah but I suspect the grumpy receptionist may have opened the letter and the vet never saw it.

    Even worse (as is the case at my regular vet) - the grumpy receptionist may be his bed partner - in which case you might still have to find a new vet.

    It's like the problem that some Lib pollies are having with the PM. They need to talk to him but they can't get past his chief of staff. Meanwhile PM says you can all talk to me any time you need. He's deluded.

    Yes you could be right...I'll wait another week then ring him but when the receptionist answers I'll give a fake name...just to stir the pot.
