Nice. It only took 11 minutes of hitting redial (upon reaching a busy signal or a "The office is currently closed" recording) before I got a human being at the doctor's office. She promised to call me back when the renewal has been put through at the pharmacy. Here's hoping that's soon.
Next up, the Utility Company. Thank God for cordless speakerphones so I can actually, you know, DO THINGS while I'm waiting on hold until I die of old age.
