Mrs Vogue was diagnosed with a cyst in December. Obviously worrying. Yesterday it was finally her time to get her appointment with the Doctor/Surgeon/Registrar bloke.
She had been waiting at the Hospital (having taken the day off work, arranged childminding etc etc) for an hour before someone came to tell her that he was actually off sick yesterday and that she would have to re-arrange the appointment.
Obviuosly it would have been too much effort to phone the patients who had appointments yesterday. Or even tell them as soon as they turned up.
