I did not get a word in edgewise, and surprisingly enough, after the Derecho that hit in late June (see corresponding blog) you would think she would be on red alert. Not-so-much.
Her topic today was her latest visit to a doctor. She would not be steered in any sort of other direction. This doctor graduated high school with me over 25 years ago, and my mother is obsessed with figuring out:
- Where she lives, and what type of house... Although she knows she is partnered, apparently in her mind gay=living at home. WTH?
- How much the vehicles she sees her drive cost. A MB wagon, a 4 wheel drive SUV, and pick up truck. "She has more cars than a dealership!"
- Obsessing on the amount of patients she has, what the EOB says the visit is paid, and so she figures out her income from there... with no understanding that A- she is partnered to a very successful woman herself B- she got her medical degree later in life and is really just getting started and C- that a medical practice on your own like that is extremely expensive in the terms of overhead, malpractice and liability insurance, etc.
- The doctor's weight, why she dresses the way she does, and the fact that she is a lesbian.
