Privacy?

I just got an automated call to confirm an upcoming doctor appointment.

It said my first name along with the date, time, and location of the appointment along with the doctor's name. Then later, it said, "to protect our patients' privacy, a photo ID is required at the time of the appointment."

Um, about that whole PRIVACY thing... You just had a robot announce all my appointment details, *without* confirming who exactly picked up the phone, but you say you want to protect my privacy? Isn't it a little late for that?

Good thing I'm not trying to keep anything from anybody, where my health is concerned, so I don't have to worry if Mark ever picks up the phone on one of these informative little robocalls.
