New Poll on The Foorce

See the right sidebar for my new poll. I’m interested in your opinion while I work on my latest rant against health insurance, waiting rooms and “special needs” practitioners. Recently it seems like anyone who has seen a disabled patient before dubs themselves a specialist – until they meet James, that is.

PS, the results from the last poll are below – now I’m interested to see how much more waiting you are willing to do once you’ve taken the time off and made the trek to the office.

New Poll On The Foorce – Are You More Patient Than I Am?

After a frustrating day on hold (okay, actually “only” 37 minutes and 11 minutes respectively, with nothing accomplished), I was inspired to add a poll to the sidebar. I’m definitely curious about how typical (or exaggerated) my contempt for holding is before my next Top Ten is “Places I Dread Calling The Most in NYC.” And with a special needs child, you know I could probably do a ten part series on this one.

Feel free to add a comment or tell on a worst-offender with your vote!
