Me: Hello this is Madeline, is this Fred?

Fred(or so I thought):  Huh?

Me: This is Madeline from ******* Family Medicine, is this Fred?

Fred: Umm.... Sure.

Me:  Okaayy... I have a couple questions to ask for your COVID screening...

Fred: Okay.

Me: Do you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, or new loss of taste or smell?

Fred: No.

Me:  Have you had COVID testing in the last 14 days?

Fred: No

Me:  Okay, when you arrive in the parking lot... 

Fred:  Who is this? 

Me: *confused*  This is Madeline, from ******** Family Medicine... You have an appointment today....? 

Fred: East Side what?

Me:  I'm calling with the doctor's office, but I think I have the wrong number... 

Fred: Yeah...

Me: Sorry about that, thanks!
I'm not quite sure how I got through basically the whole phone call without him telling me I had the wrong number...  If you're confused about this, please go check out my other piece(is this a series?) Of An Early Morning Phone Call and COVID denier  And please don't give out medical information to a random stranger.

    Ha ha! This is so funny. The poor guy probably couldn't figure out why he needed Covid screening for no reason. Ah, the pleasures of customer service.

    Re: Yeah, I understand. So, you choose to tell us about the brainiest people only. XD

    I read "Fred" and thought of the twins from Harry Potter, so I kept thinking that Fred was just playing a prank on you until I read the end LOL
    I admire your patience level :0

    Didn't you ask him if he has got right wiring in his brain? XD
    Ah, you're doing a tough job and somewhere I agree with Queenie!
    Have a good day!
