I went to the Dentist yesterday to tell them my filling had come out and could they please put me a temporary one back in till i could get a proper app. Oh we can see to you now says the nice lady at the front desk, just pop upstairs (I am using a walking stick for balance) and wait in the waiting room. So I did. Kept my head down cos I could feel the beads of sweat popping up on my forhead. Then its my turn, omg omg!!! I lie on the dentist chair, grunting in pain as I feel another spasm in my back an leg getting ready to kick in, no pun intended folks hehe. The Dentist got stuck in so to speak, needle was the size of which im sure i've never seen before. While i'm sat left to numb up she has a go at me cos i've not been for a year. I explain i've been ill a lot and that it had been explained everytime I rang reception. There was a grunt then an ok before she got stuck into me cakehole again. Ok it's done!! I struggle like an upside down turtle to get up and manage to stand n sway on my feet once more. Again comes the lecture we all get. By now I feel weepy and very very angry. My sister is terminal in hospital and I have held back on the weeping and now this needle wielding person has the audacity to have a go. I walk with some dignity (really more like a weeble) out of the room and back down to reception where I hand over £48 for said filling. Only to discover at home when the numbness had worn off that the dozy mare had filled the WRONG tooth!!! Now what?? My tongue won't stop having a lil ol poke at the cavity just to be sure its there. Any advice from you nice folks would be most welcome........no needle jokes please xx
