Any of the following might do the trick:
- Marking. Enough said.
- A visit to a Medicare office. There's nothing like a queue and government form filling to raise the stress levels. The "gap" between what the doctor's charge and what the refund is sends the stress levels into stratosphere territory
- Paying a bill at council business centre. Winkle is now an official member of our household. The procedure was far more painful than it needed to be
- A specialist's waiting room, clearly called that because you wait, and wait and wait. Leaving with a colonoscopy prep kit and a booking for the world's least attractive screening procedure is just awesome for the soul. Not.
- Dealing with tragically poor customer service. Nasty letter written, the results of which will determine how much of that complaint finds its way into the public domain. Watch this space.
