Three in a Morning
I recently had scheduled 3 different doctor appointments in the same morning. It was like this:
- 8:00 am ……. Arthritis doctor
- 9:00 am ….… Podiatrist
- 10:15 am …… Urology Doctor
I didn’t know if I could accomplish this without being late for an appointment.
I am happy to report that it worked. I was early for each appointment. I even had time to go to the library between the 2nd and 3rd appointment and check out a couple of books. I was back at home before 11:00 am.
I think this works because the appointments were scheduled early. I would not attempt to fit in 3 appointments in a single afternoon. Would you?
I’ve heard this all my life:
”Early to bed, and early to rise,
Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”
It is one of Ben Franklin’s quotes.
To be good is different enough.
Joke of the Day
A Japanese soap manufacturing company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a box of soap that was empty. Management tasked its engineers to solve the problem permanently to avoid any reoccurrence.
The engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the soapboxes that passed through the line to make sure they were not empty. No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast.
But a rank-and-file employee that was posed the same problem came out with another solution. He bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched the fan on, and as each soapbox passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line.
