I was reading a blog the other day. The writer is retiring and wrote he had just given his two weeks notice that he was leaving. Who decided two weeks was the proper amount of notice to give? Why two weeks? Is the employer expected to find a replacement in two weeks? Does this ever happen?
Who determines what size to makes shoes? I wear a size 9 1/2, a sometimes impossible size to find. It seems manufacturers make shoes up through size 9 and then jump straight to whole sizes like 10 and 11. Size 10 often breaks at a spot on my toes which is painful and may even cause blisters. In addition, the heel doesn’t fit around my heel properly. Dr. Scholl shoes are especially bad at doing this. I see cute Dr. Scholl shoes in catalogues and stores but they are not available in my size 9 1/2.
Losing doctors. This has been a rough year for me and doctors. My primary care doctor moved out of state. I selected another doctor from that practice to be my primary care. A few weeks ago I called to make an appointment for my quarterly visit. She wasn’t available. I had to see the nurse practitioner. While meeting that person, I learned the doctor is out on maternity leave. This morning I had a dental appointment. While the dentist was checking my mouth, I learned it was his last day in the office. He’s retiring. I didn’t think he was that old and suspect his leaving has more to do with the practice being purchased by a multi-l0cation company. I noticed the hygienist is new and I really didn’t recognize any of the other technicians. Why is my medical support system being taken away from me?
