DEAR ABBY: After reading the letter from the woman who was insulted because she was addressed by her first name at her doctor's office while the men were called “Mister,"
I wish to relate the following incident:
After being kept waiting for more than 30 minutes in my doctor’s examining room (I was there for a breast examination following my second mammogram within four months), I heard the nurse say to the doctor, “The ‘ear’ is in room nine, and the ‘boobs' are in here!"
I could write pages on how that made me feel in an already stressful situation. I addressed her remark the minute the nurse and doctor entered the room. From the nurse, who first denied saying it. I got a mumbled. “Sorry ." From my doctor I received. “I'm sure she didn t mean anything by it."
I'm not a prude. Abby, and I'm not naive. But to be referred to as a body part — in a crude slang term — does not elicit a lot of faith in that group of so-called professionals. I am finding it difficult to go back there, although our insurance dictates whom we see.
FUMING IN TUCSON DEAR FUMING: The nurse was insensitive and unprofessional, and the doctor was no bargain either. Contact your insurance company and ask if there is another physician's group you may consult for a “second opinion." With nine examination rooms, a 30-minute backlog, and a nurse with the hide of a rhinoceros and a limited medical vocabulary, your physician already has more problems than he can handle.
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I purchased a home in a rural community. Our house in the city has not yet sold. We borrowed money from both our parents to purchase our new home, promising to repay them when our old house sells.
Last Christmas, my husband’s parents presented us w ith our gift — a note that showed our loan status to the penny, of which they deducted $1,000. Other family members who did not owe them money received $1,000 per family.
We are grateful for the reduction of our loan, but after receiving the note, we didn t feel much like celebrating
What do you think of this kind of
present0 So far. my parents have never reminded us of how much we
I O U. IN IOWA
DEAK I.O.U.: No matter how you look at it, you received a gift worth $1,000, so as I see it, you have no reason to complain.
DEAR ABBY: The letter about the toddler w ho fell into a five-gallon bucket of water and drowned while his mother ran to answer the telephone prompts this letter. Actually, I want to address two separate, but related issues.
No. I: The ridiculous belief that when a telephone rings, you have to run to answer it! I am a physician, and I’ve had a number of people come to my office due to ir\junes they
have received when they tripped and fell while running to answer the telephone. I say, if the phone rings while you're busy, let the blasted thing ring — if it’s really important, the party will call back
The other issue: Many lives could be saved if everyone — including housewives — knew how to do CPR. One never knows when a friend or family member w ill black out or have a heart attack. Most American Red C ross chapters offer excellent courses for home and workplace emergency care.
DR. MAX WREN, MC AL1STER. OKLA.
DEAR DR. WREN: (I am not going to say you're for the birds.) Thanks for a fine and ever timely letter.
DEAR ABBY: I am 27 years old. When I was in the second semester of my senior year of high school. I was raped. I couldn’t face my classmates, so I dropped out of school.
I returned the following year to graduate in 1982, although I was ready to graduate in 1981. My picture was already in the 1981 yearbook. and my name had even been printed in the 1981 graduation booklet. All of my friends graduated in 1981.
The Class of’81 is now planning its 10th reunion, and I feel that this is the gathering I should attend. How ever, technically, I didn’t graduate until 1982.
Should I go to the party with all of the classmates with whom I should have graduated? Or should I wait a year and probably not attend because I don't know any people from that class? Please don't use my name.
DEAR UNDECIDED: Go with the Clam of *81. (Would I lie to you on George Washington** birthday?)
DEAR ABBY: I am not writing for a solution, but hope that sharing our family’s experience might benefit
After our daughter had been married for a couple of years, we decided to give her and her husband her “inheritance* early so they could buy a house. They had gone together for a number of years, and we felt confident that this marriage would go the distance. We were wrong.
They are now being divorced, and he is getting the house! In our ignorance. we gave them a large sum of money to buy the house. The papers were drawn up in both their names. Big mistake! Details would make this letter much too long, but our daughter is getting the short end of the stick and is losing much of the money we intended her to have.
Abby, please advise anyone considering giving a sizable check to a married daughter or son to make it out in the name of your child only. Naturally, any appreciation on the house or interest earned on money becomes joint property, but the initial gift would have been our daughter’s if we had made out the papers and checks in her name only.
OLDER AND WISER DEAR OLDER AND WISER: Thanks for a valuable letter.
