Occupational Hazard

My dentist is away. I decided to go the local dentist up the High Road, the one where my friend Moo goes. I made an appointment – on the landline  because I’ve run out of credit on my mobile – for 9.00 this morning. After dropping Son at school, I ran a few errands and got to the dentist with ten minutes to spare (as requested). The receptionist told me that I did not have an appointment.  As I had not made the call on my mobile, I did not have the number of the surgery I’d called and who were waiting for me. She suggested that it might be one up near Sainsburys, so I ran up that way and found nowt. I went back and asked if she could give me an appointment to have the tooth fixed. She said that it was not possible – it was possible to see a dentist as a new patient and get a check-up but they would not fix anything – useful! On my mobile there was the last search that I’d done and that was for the dentist, although by the time I’d pressed a few buttons, the search was lost, along with any number and address I might have had. I ran down the other end of the High Road like a headless chicken, looking for the dentist but to no avail. Honey had once used a dentist that we named ‘The Mouth Mechanic’ – a huge bear of a man who tinkers around in people’s mouths like he’s under the hood of a car, bashing and clanking away with his tools – and it was his door I passed en route. I fell through the door, breathless and sweating from my run. He put a big bear arm around my shoulders and I leaned against him, panting, ‘Please help me!’ And he is going to help me at 11.00. Times like this remind me that being a pot-head is not conducive to daily living.

    all dentists are the axis of evil including the ones who collect charity , it is immoral to respect a dentist because there allways was another option but they never offer it
    i believe that soon there will be spate of dental assasinations ,around the town and i for one am willing to offer my house as refuge .
