Scheduling an appointment with the doctor

I got a postcard from my doctor’s office. It said “It’s time for your annual checkup. Please call our office to schedule an appointment.”

That seemed simple enough so I called the doctor’s office and said that I got a postcard asking me to schedule my annual checkup.

The scheduling drone informed me “Your insurance won’t allow an annual checkup for another couple of months.” I should mention that the drone’s tone of voice carried a degree of contempt that didn’t seem deserved.

I did not say “Then why the f*ck is your office telling me to schedule one?”

I said nothing instead.

The drone brightened: “Oh! The doctor’s calendar isn’t free for 3 months anyway. What time is good for you?”
