Things that annoy me

1. When technology fails me


My hiatus (tho short) from the Internet was due to lightning problems. The problem was that it struck my modem~ grrrr . i dun think it is possible to fix such things.. or am i mistaken? So hobbled on to City Square to get a new ADSL modem at RM 105. Dun even noe if its reasonable ..just bought it. So, happy with the prospect of a new and working modem, decided to try my hand at those photo printing booths where u load ur own pics, add some design and print it out for only 2 bucks per picture. I've tried it b4 printing out pics from JH's phone via bluetooth with no hitch. So i tot using my mom's memory card shld be no prob. Doing doing doing big mistake~ Not only did the stupid @#%$$# machine KO’ed the memory card, we din get the photos printed. And i only knew about it after i left the place. So now I’m shopping around for a replacement memory card for the camera. Luckily it’s not too ex…but I just feel so sway when it comes to technology.


2. When people ask for a free consultation and not appreciate it


A hypochondriac friend of my mom called bright and early, as she had queried bout her haematology result. So i called back ( cos obviously i dun wake up very early) and assured her tht an ESR of 40 (normal range 0-20) was okie. Probably some infection or something. And since she was bout 50, it is normal for her to have an ESR of bout 30 <(50+10)/2> Mind u there rest of her values were normal. She then proceeded to ask bout her other values which differed only like 1 from the reference range.. I just reassured her tht everything was okie.. But being obviously still very worried bout her ESR she said


Mdm A: I did some research online and found out tht it may be associated with early cancer or rheumatoid arthritis.


Me: Oh, if u have rheumatoid u would have joint pain. Anyway ESR is not specifically used to predict RA or cancers so don’t worry too much. It might have been an infection. Did u have fever lately?


Mdm A: (ignoring my question) So u think it's okie? U dun think it might be a sign of early cancer?


Me: No i dont think so at all.


Mdm A: So I still have to ask a doctor la.


Me: (dumfounded ~~ which part of No does she not understand?) Well if you're still worried then you should go and consult ur doctor.


Mdm A: But you're a doctor!


Me: (Wasn't she the one who wanted a second opinion? I then just answered whatever came to my mind) Yeah but I haven't started work yet. I still feel there is no cause for concern there.


Mdm A: Okie thanks a lot yeah. Is ur mummy at home?


Doing~ why are some people so paranoid?


3. When I lose my 8 Days magazine…


… in my own house…. and I have to buy a new one


4. That I look too young


5. That I can’t find enough stuff to be annoyed about to be entered in my ‘Things that annoy me list’


Maybe i'm not tht annoyed after all~
