When the doctor almost forgot me

Every time I think of this incident I have to smile to myself. Some time ago I visited my family physician for a regular check up and as customary the receptionist escorted me into a patient room and asked me to wait for my doctor. She told me that it would not be too long.

So I settled down to wait but after a half hour had gone by I began to worry because my doctor is always on time. I allowed five minutes to go by and then I decided to take action.

Thank goodness for my iPhone. I pulled it out of my purse and dialed my doctor's office number and bingo! As soon as the receptionist heard my voice she sprang into action and soon enough I heard her running down the hall towards the room in which I was sitting, followed by my doctor.

My iPhone sure saved the day for me because if I did not have it with me I would have been in great difficulty to find my way to the receptionist's desk.

The receptionist had made a small error but that's okay. She is always so very conscientious with me.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan

"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud; those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!

If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
