I'll have a call before 3pm!
Why do RE's offices allow patients to bring children with them? I've heard of some that don't, but mine clearly doesn't have that rule. It seems like there's always a child there. I don't always mind so much if it's an older child, but so often women come in with infants. Yes, I know people want to have children close together sometimes, but it just doesn't seem nice to other patients to parade your baby around in there. Heck even message boards have baby-free zones, including a small one that I moderate. You just don't do it, you know?
Today was just bizarre though. There were three of us in the waiting room, and a woman came in with a 9 month old. How do I know it was a 9 month old? Well, she sat down next to one of the other women and started saying "Isn't she cute? Look at her trying to stand! She's only 9 months old and she thinks she can walk! Silly girl! I love my baby!" and then the final straw, she turned to the woman next to her and said, "Do you have babies waiting for you at home?" WTF? Have you no sense of decorum, woman? I'm glad your treatment obviously worked, but that was not the place to show off your baby.
