To transfer pharmacies,

Wait on hold for 20 minutes,

Before getting hung up on

When you finally get to the front of the cue.

Get back in,

Wait twenty minutes more.

Find out it’s pointless

When you talk to someone.

Move on to call for an ADA transportation test.

Wait for the return call,

Go to the bathroom

and leave the phone on the sink

Because: butterfingers + toilet + phone = “oh fuk!”

Miss call,

Wait more.

Have lunch & do some calming yoga.

Look up address-change form,

Fill it out, press enter.

Check finances and see

$90 fee.

Call bank to cancel pending charges.

Be told that I must wait to protest charges.

Oopsie doopsie!

Don’t take it.

Call company to demand it be canceled.

Customer service rep

tries to talk me into not canceling,

I say no,

She tries again.

No, I want to cancel.


And again.

She breaks,

I broke her gently,

I used to work in a call center too,

And I know I broke her quota.


I would rather she not break my wallet.

No law student has a spare hundred.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
