If you choose to call our house at 11:30 pm, please don’t begin the call with-
“Hello, I am Officer so and so from Magee Woman’s Hospital and I am so sorry to call so late.”
I have already panicked that the phone is ringing at 11:30 and there is a hospital on caller ID. My heart is pounding and I have begun praying for everyone I know.
So you can understand my anger when I discover you are calling because you have found a cell phone with our number in it and are wondering if we can contact its owner for you. Especially when said owner has no other contact number than his cell phone. Oh, and did I mention he is a doctor who works in YOUR hospital. A doctor whose name you seemed to know when you called.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
