Me: Hello, I need to reschedule my dental appointment that was supposed to be tomorrow. I have a head cold.
Receptionist: Oh, we don’t worry about that. The dentist has gloves on.
Me: Yeah, except I can’t breathe through my nose.
Receptionist: Like I said, the dentist has gloves on.
Me: Right. But I can’t breathe through my nose, and let’s say the dentist has his hands in my mouth, so how exactly am I getting air in? Besides, if there’s freezing, then there could be an incident and I wouldn’t know about it.
Receptionist: Like what kind of incident?
Me: Um, well, like snot dripping down or something.
Receptionist: We can reschedule to 2 weeks from now – will that work?
Me: Yes. That will be fine.
