being sick. As if the Guy's being away wasn't enough, I had to go fall ill to remind me exactly how much I miss him being around. And I took myself to the doctor yesterday, for the first time in my life (that is, I've been to see doctors before, only never alone), after some gentle nudging from the Guy. And Cee Kay, too, was kind enough to urge me. (See? I did go!)
On a tangential note, why is it so difficult for someone as educated as a doctor to understand the concept of "Ms"? When she wrote down my name, she asked, "Miss or Mrs.?" I said, "Ms."- of course - and she still wrote down "Miss". I tried to correct her by saying I am married, but she thought I was saying I'm not. I had already spent over half an hour in the waiting room and was dizzy so I decided not to argue the point.
Until later, that is, when she started asking questions about my sex life. Then I explained to her again that I am married. And once she understood, of course, she immediately changed the "Miss" in her notebook to "Mrs".
Recently I had to fill a form and was asked to choose between, Miss, Mrs and Ms. Why not leave it at Ms??? Why do they want to know whether or not we are married?
Well, I can imagine doctors wanting to know if someone is married because it gives a helpful indication of their sex life. But why not simply ask if I'm married? What's with the "Mrs" thing? It's innacurate to call me "Mrs" when I'm not using my husband's name anyway.
add me to the list of people complaining on this Ms. issue. People just dont get it...
However one funny thing is my hubby uses a cell phone thats in my name...so when the call center guys call up and ask for me, on hearing that he is the husband...they promptly call him Mr. 'my family name'..hehehe
