You say potato, I say potato

Bloggie friends!!

In my attempt to make a dental appointment, the following telephone conversation occurred towards the end!

Me: So I'll be there on the 16th of December at 11 am.
Receptionist: No the 15th of November at 10 am.
Me: December?
Receptionist: Yes, the 16th of December.
Me: At 10 am?
Receptionist: No, 11 am.
Me: On the 16th ?
Receptionist: The 15th at 11 am
Me: Please could we start again?

She was really nice but got me most confused!

Charlie says: Easily done.


Have a tickly Thursday everyone!

Some days you just need to go back to bed and forget the day every happened!
Charlie, you are gorgeous...could you please slow down the countdown for me please? I don't think I am quite ready!

Reenie said...

Hope the tooth heals well, Jenn :)

I am silly scared of dentists too!

Ah... I wonder if she has had too much to drink or if the coffee machine at work was broken... lol!

Brian said...

Oh now that's funny, sounds like the conversations around here!

Caren Gittleman said...

Yikes!! I hate those kind of moments. I'm never sure at the end exactly what I'm doing! :)

Jamie Burch said...

That is too funny! I hope you got it all straightened out. I'd say we all have those moments.

Love the pic of Charlie!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

No, I think SHE was confused!

Theresa Milstein said...

Thanksgiving weekend is over and I can't wait for the next break!

23 days 'til Christmas. And how many days until your dental appointment? Are we going back in time or forward? 15th or 16th? If I were you, I'd just camp out there and see when they have time to squeeze you in.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Oh my! That DOES sound so confusing!

I love Charlie's circle spot! It's so unique like him!

Guinevere said...

That made me smile. Quite the little mix-up. And another cute Charlie pic! Could he be more photogenic? (Or is just that you're a brilliant pet photographer? My cats always turn away and blink right when I click the camera!).

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

YIKES! I'm not sure when your appointment is??? I hope you figured it out...

d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

I think Charlie would run rings around that receptionist!

Brigid said...

Best of luck with that, it was just your way of trying to blank it out of your mind.

Al said...

Fear does that to people.

Madeleine said...

LOL! Glad you asked for clarification. Sweet pic too :O)

fairyhedgehog said...

I hope you and the dentist are both there on the same day!

Kea said...

We think SHE was confused! LOL.

Fingers and paws crossed all goes well. :-)

Joanna St. James said...

I would have agreed to the 15th of Nov and bailed, my hubs makes my appts if not i will never go

Manzanita said...

Merry Christmas.... just heard we're now supposed to say Happy Holidays.... Who Cares? You'll have a new tooth for Christmas. Your conversation is like the old Abbot and Costello as in "who's on first."

Creepy Query Girl said...

lol- too funny. When my husband speaks fast or I have water running or there's background noise, I'll hear him say the weirdest things and repeat back to him what I heard. It gets pretty funny.

Sammy and Andy said...

We can see why you got so confused!!!!!!!!!

Handsome pic of you, dearest Charlie.

Sending our love to both of you...we are so thankful for your friendship. :)

Hannah and Lucy said...

Was that the phone call you made to the hairdresser!!??

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

WHOSE ON FIRST??? Mommy is very easily confused!!! MOL

Marg said...

I would have been totally confused too. That sounds like something I would do. Which day, huh, and so on. Charlie you are looking really well. Hope you have a fun day.

notesfromnadir said...

Charlie is so witty! Hope all goes well--I have a hunch this isn't a top spot on your "fun places" list!

LTM said...

LOL! Now I'm confused~ :D <3

Hart Johnson said...

*snicker* Oh dear... and it's too late to show up for the November one... better show up at 10 in December and have a book in case it's not until 11...

The Golden Eagle said...

Those kinds of conversations are just . . . plain old confusing. :P

Jayne said...

Ha! When I bought my lunch yesterday the woman asked whether I'd like a bag. I said yes thank you. She nodded, and then asked me whether I wanted a bag. I was like uh...yes? It's the time of year!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

ha ha ha! Too funny! :-0

klahanie said...

Confusing, for sure. I'd be even more confused if the receptionist was a cat:-)
Ah, 23 days until 'Boxing Day Eve'.

Rene said...

Oh boy, I hope you figured out when your appointment really was.

ABBY said...

Oh dear I was confused!
Dear Charlie help us out!

Melinda Szymanik said...

i think she'd been sampling the egg nogg a little early - hope the dentist won't be doing the same before treating you :)

Ha ha.... join my world !

KarenMcG said...

Charlie,

You got a really strange spot on your back! Actually, what a unique marking.

And what a hoot your mom ran into with that receptionist.

Ellie said...

LOL. That is the funniest thing I've read in ages.

Simon Kewin said...

Heh. I've read it twice and now I'm confused!
