I'd prefer & Appreciate that
Thanks
Grace....very briefly as I am being called to give my assitance
with this wretched job we are doing between us...lol.

Is there any possiblility of 'putting back' your relative's appointment until another day/week. Don't for a minute think you are being mean...you have to take every precaution when there are such bugs around, by the hospital disclosing it is warning enough.

All around the world there are jokes made by one nationality about another ... nothing new here ... for some reason when I was a kid Polish jokes were "in" ...

Not much different than blonde jokes, right?
Fortunately I'm not blonde.

Please play nice.
Polish jokes as well as blonde jokes have their own forum.
Just saying...

Congratulations on the new grand-child ... no matter the arrival day!
Thank you Deer! Took both phones to the bedroom with me, but no call. It's my mom's B-day, maybe yet today....

Good morning, and have a great Tuesday.

Good afternoon Grace. Yes that is a tough spot you're in. Can the patient delay the appointment at all? Can you remain in the car while the patient goes in? I'd be waiting with a can of Lysol disinfectant and spray them down real good before they got back in the car.....just KIDDING! lol But seriously, your concern is very valid, hospitals are dangerous places. Could you ask another family member to accompany the patient to your place and to the hospital?

Good morning El and all my friends. It is a beautiful day here. About 70. I bought a new scope for $200 so I am off to the range to sight it in. A fun day ahead :)

Mighty Quinn did you notice Polish and polish are spelled the same way. Webster didn't know the difference between sh^t and Shinola :) There are no spectator sports in Poland because of bad seats. Every where you sit you are behind a Pole :)

EL & PP..

THANK YOU both very much for replies
and helpful suggestions, and you both thought
alike, but fact is this has been going on for
a while now > the outbreak of the super bug, I mean
and the patient has cancelled on two previous occasions
and *has to* go this time.

Your answers are really appreciated,
I suppose it's something I'll have to figure out by
myself and try to do it with the least amount
of 'collateral' damage!

I thought of asking another member to go with her,
I don't mind driving there and back
no matter how long,
I just DON'T WANT that debilitating bug.

I can think of more welcome
Christmas gifts(:

Thanks again ..

I don't want you to get it either, Grace! It may prove too costly to you, surely there's another family member whose health is less vulnerable that can accompany the patient.

Is that a good thing though Tony, seriously, commendable in one
respect certainly, but ignoring bad judgement on the pitch can
surely lead to further error, whereas the football players make it
known they are not happy. To err is human certainly, but if three
bad judgements were to be made by one referee, then to my way of thinking he should not referee ever again.
There is too much at stake to have the game sullied by poor calls.
If it were tightened up then the football players would not have to take matters into their own hands....:)
the AMerican football had a situation earlier this year where the referees were on strike and so they called in replacement referees who had worked in none-NFL games but were experienced referees. The end result was that poor calls did occur at a higher frequency and which appeared to decide some close games.

I think if the poor calls evened out between both teams that is not too bad.

But in a case like this ENgland-AUSSIE match, where the calls always seemed to go against one team while identical infraction by the other team were ignored, then I agree an inquiry into that referee's work should be made, and at least several game susspension withuot pay should result.

im half polish and when i first met my husband my FIL just loved to go on and on with those jokes, lucky for me it never bothered me. it actually helped me to relax around his family and pretty soon the two of us were trading jokes and seeing who could outdo the other. lol
i loved that man like a father..
jokes are intended to make people laugh and if we cant laugh at ourselves, well i think thats just sad..
:]
glad to see that people can handle such jokes in the light-hearted manner they were intended. I'm part German .. I have had to endure Kraut and Nazi jokes in my lifetime ....

Bad taste Denny...there is a difference in humour and sheer
bad taste.

Well said Franko...if it were just one bad call it could be
forgiven, but numerous bad calls, and always against the one
side, not on.
