OT - AITA
A friend (we'll call her Rachel) has been dealing with a medical issue for several years. It does cause her discomfort on occasion, but is not fatal and does not shorten her time on this rock.
We met for dinner last night. As soon as the waiter took our order, she immediately launched into a tirade about how her doctor's office never called her back.
A year ago, Rachel decided to discontinue the treatment, calling the doctor's office and telling his nurse quite adamantly that she was DONE. FINISHED. FINITO. No more appointments. CANCEL THE NEXT ONE. Don't forget to insert a bunch of swear words in all of that. Not how some of us would've ended things, but Rachel is a hothead and... prefers to passionately slam proverbial doors shut. *unknw*
Anyhoo, Rachel is ticked off because... it was one year (the 12th) and neither the doctor nor any member of his staff has bothered to call and check on her. Mmmmm-kay. So she fired off an angry letter how she cannot believe no one has bothered to check on her in all this time and how unprofessional they are. "Isn't that a bunch of BS, Aniki?!"
Queue a flabbergasted Aniki... "Um... Rachel, you were very emphatic when you called last year and said you were done..."
Rachel, "Can you believe those effers called this morning and asked if I want to come back?!"
A: "Oh, uh..."
R: "I told them to F*** Off! A year and no has bothered to check on me. A YEAR!!! I should report them to the medical board! Don't you think so?!?!"
Apparently, this is me being the A...
A: "Well, no, I don't. Maybe they thought you found another doc..."
R <interrupting>: "They should've checked up on me! That's they're GD job! You should be on MY side! YOU'RE BEING A TOTAL B!TCH!!!"
And she proceeded to throw down her napkin, stand up so abruptly that her chair fell over, grabbed her purse, and stomped out of the restaurant.
I picked up her chair, asked the red-faced waiter if it was to late to cancel her food order (it was not) and put both glasses of wine on my tab.
AITA for believing that her reporting that doctor and his staff to the medical board is wrong? Any suggestions for a better choice of words?
