- My family needs me- There are meals to be prepared, laundry to be washed, and just the general day to day activities of running a household.
- A dollar is a dollar- The dentist and doctor's office are busy places. Therefore, if I am running late or not going to be able to make my appointment, I call the office. I want to be sure my running late won't interfere with other patients and if I need to reschedule~ I will reschedule the appointment.
- My son's teacher is busy enough~ Therefore if I have a meeting scheduled with his teacher, I attend or let the teacher know I need to reschedule.
So, what seems so difficult about this? Common sense seems to have been tossed out the window. I have been told by several teachers, doctors, moms, and dentists that they don't think others value their time! So.....this is a wake up call to all of us! If you can't make it on time......Use common sense and make that telephone call.
My time is valuable, your time is valuable...So, let's work together and bring TIME back to the common sense in our daily lives. How do you value your time and the time of others? I will keep doing what I am doing.....an occasional eye roll at the doctor's office (people just don't get it) and this Mom is good to go. Oh yeah, and that privacy issue in the medical field~ it's always interesting how I can hear what each patient is there for, how much their bill is~ makes no sense to me. But then again, I am just a Mom.
It always amazes me that a Mom will take the time to argue with a receptionist at an office....Geeshe..take a chill pill people! It's all about my time and your time~ Bring some common sense into your time~ we would all be a little happier! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
