I called my doctor today to ask about a phone-in prescription (or a visit if that's necessary) since I've caught whatever's going around and am still coughing and sniffling and over-the-counter medicines are not helping. I left a message on her secretary's answering machine.
I never got a call-back.
How did we fall so far from actually being able to get the doctor to come see us when we're sick all the way to such shoddy service that they can't even do a simple phone-in for someone who's sick but nevertheless provided all the info that would be needed, so there would be no excuse like "You didn't tell us enough"?
It's insane, I tell you. Insane.
(A Letter to my apartment complex)
To put it bluntly, the enforcement of your assigned covered parking is abysmal.
This evening I arrived home from work to discover that a white truck
was parked in my space. Because of this, I was forced to park in the
"general" parking area at the fence line some distance from my
I began my quest to get this truck towed by calling the Dana Point
main number, and pressing "0" to get the answering service. The
answering service provided me with a number that they claimed was the
tow service. It, however, was not. It was the number for the courtesy
officer. I asked the courtesy officer if he had the number for the
towing service, and he did not. (Which I found odd, as how is the
courtesy officer supposed to have a car towed, if he doesn't have the
number). The officer suggested that I look around the parking lot, as
it was a city ordinance that a sign must be posted with the towing
So, off I go into the parking lot, and I did find one sign, all the
way at the front of the complex. So, I take the number, go home, and
call this service. The lady on the other end informed me that they do
have a contract with Dana Point, but it was on call only, and such
calls can ONLY be made by the management.
So, to sum up, in order to get a car towed, the towing company must be
called by management....in the middle of the night, when no one is
I can only assume then, that no cars are in fact being towed. That
your "assigned parking" is a myth, and is merely an honor system,
whereby you Hope that your "assigned" space is not taken.
As a customer who was enticed by this benefit as a reason for moving
to your complex, I am not impressed. Please tell me how you plan to
fix this policy and it's implementation?
Ever had your food taken away -- or rather, just nearly, if it weren't for the fact that he stopped when he bumped your arm in doing so -- by a server while your fork is still in transit from plate to mouth?
At $30 a plate, I assumed that this place would be a bit classier than that.
