that was almost too easy

 I just made an eye doctor appointment. Usually I would have to call and sit on hold then bullshit with the lady a little bit..... but now they have this online thing with a chart showing open appointments, you click the one you want then type in your name AND that's it... you have an appointment.

 

Pretty cool huh? I guess a lot of places do that now because I did the same thing to go get blood drawn.

The optometrist I use has been doing that for 2 years.  I've never made an appointment over the phone.  I love it.  DS's doctor has an online way of making appointments as well, but its not instantaneous like that, you have to send in a request with you top choices for date and time, then they'll make the appointment and e-mail you back.  That's just too much of a pain in the butt, so I still just call them.

When you would call in to make an appt there was someone there to do it for you.  now those people will be out of a job.

 Oh. I don't know how long they have been doing it because I haven't gone in 2 yrs. I really need to go now because I have been using the same pair of 2-week contacts for a little over a year and last night they were stuck to my eyeballs
