A Man Walks Into The Doctors – The Story So Far – Not Going Out

Today I rang the Doctors Surgery to see if I could get the results of last weeks MRI scan. Firstly, when you ring my Doctors Surgery you are presented with a recorded message which made me smile as the first option is “If your enquiry is urgent or you have a life threatening condition, please press one now!”.

Secondly, I can only, apparently, get test results between the hours of 2pm and 4pm. “If you are calling between these times, please press 4 now” Great, I think, I have to go to town this afternoon anyway, so I can pop in and see if the results are back. So I nip into the doctors, after 2pm and before 4pm like the recorded mesage said.
“Hello, I’ve come to see if the results of my MRI scan have come back”.
The lady behind the reception desk looks horrified and says “You can’t get results in person. Only over the phone. Because of confidentiality.”
“But”, I say, ” surely it’s safer to give them to me in person, I have ID and everything. If I were just on the end of a telephone line, it could be anyone calling, saying they were me. How is that more confidential?”
She looks incredulous. “Name”, she says. I tell her. She shuffles some files and envelopes and says, “They’re not back, try at the end of the week”

    Totals for Juneathon Days 1-7

Run – 28.3 miles
Bike – 20.4 miles
Press Ups – 695
Crunches – 400

As my knees seem to be feeling the strain of 7 consecutive days running / cycling, I decided that today I would only do press-ups and crunches and give my legs a day off. I also tinkered with the pushbike, pumped the tyres and lubed the chain in readiness for another outing later in the week. But I still couldn’t help feeling like I’d not really Juneathoned today.

Hey Ho. As a friend of mine is fond of saying, “A change is as good as a rest, just not as relaxing!”

Juneathon Stats: 4 sets of press ups – 60 / 50 / 50 / 50 (210 total for day), 3 sets of stomach crunches – 100 / 100 / 100 (300 total for day)
