Got an email from Lloyds Chemists suggesting I should book a flu jab with them. This I did, but could not book myself and Dot for the same day. Some time later got an email telling me my appointment had been cancelled and to rebook it, which I did for exactly the same day as the original appointment. It seemed Dot's appointment was fine until we turned up at the chemist and were told it had been cancelled, no email cancellation was received, although they assured me one was sent. I used to be an IT manager, so I should bloody well know.
Booked another appointment for Dot a week later, wandered up to the chemist only to find it had been cancelled again with no notification, received no apology and when I said I was going to have some fun on Twitter with this situation the pharmacist said please do, no one will be interested, and she was almost correct. This is my Twitter comment 3Dgifartist on Twitter: "Dot is 70 and failed to get a flu jab for the second time at @LloydsPharmacy in Borough Green. Pharmacist told me no one would be interested if I had a little fun on Twitter, and she was correct, but I had a GIF available #3Danimation #3Dmodeling #Sevenoaks #wrotham https://t.co/SB9rbl3Fh5" / Twitter The next day on my early morning walk in the dark I encountered a dog on one of those extended leads but could not see the owner because he was around the corner of the entrance to the park. The bloody animal launched itself at me and sank its teeth into my arm. The dog's owner, a young man, was absolutely shocked (I was none too happy either) and was very apologetic after disengaging the animal from my arm. We exchanged details, and he rang me later to confirm I was OK. The dog had broken the skin, and I was able to get an immediate appointment with the Borough Green medical centre, where I received a tetanus injection and was able to book Dot a Flu jab for the same day. Dot not only got her flu jab but an anti pneumonia jab in the other arm, poor old girl went through it that day. Today I received an email from Lloyds telling me that I can get a free delivery of my prescribed medication, I would definitely kick the bucket without my pills, do you think I can trust them, I bloody well don't.
