It's Common Courtesy, People!

So I have for the second time this week attempted to get my flu shot and failed.  Why?  Because the stupid health care people have no regard for my time and money whatsoever.

On the website, it plainly states that a flu shot "clinic" will be available at Wal-Mart from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday of this week.  So you can imagine my irritation when I arrived at 12:30 on Tuesday to find a sign that said they would be gone until 1:15!  Oh, but the sign said "Sorry for any inconvenience," so that makes everything better...  And I'm sure you can imagine my further frustration when I arrived today at 11:20 to find no one there and waited fruitlessly before I finally decided at noon that I couldn't afford to wait any longer (I have places to go, people to see, things to do!) and left.  Now I'm sitting here fuming.  If you're going to announce that something is happening in a certain location at a certain time, it would be really nice if you could actually be there at that time.  And if you're not going to be able to make it, you could have the decency to adjust the announcement accordingly.  Whatever happened to common courtesy?
