Oh, I WILL have a good day, Janey

After all, it could be the last one of my life. While I was sitting in the Spring Break dead-empty library today I received this message via Google Voice:

Hm. This was kind of what I had been imagining but I hadn’t realized the receptionist would be so up front about it. Don’t you wish your dentist were as honest about what your visit entailed as mine is? By the way, Tamara Ross is “tomorrow’s” and my dentist’s name isn’t really Dr. Cassius, although death by knockout might be more merciful.

This could be the best Google mistranscription I’ve received since “We’re gonna do it now in the parking garage.”

As for “Transcription useful?” on the bottom right, there doesn’t seem to be a box for “burst out laughing on an overworked and undercaffeinated morning” so I’ll just go with Yes.

Do NOT call Janey back to confirm that appointment, Becca!

Becca says

I didn’t! It’s rude to make phone calls in the library.

But wait, wait, I have figured this out! Dr. Cassius is just off Fifth Avenue and it’s ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!!!!

This will indeed be death.

Ima Wurdibitsch says

It’s okay. It’s just an appointment with death. It’s not like you’re committing to anything, right?

Becca says

Hi Ima! So true.

Well, I’m back from my appointment and Death didn’t show. Typical.

As funny as advertised!

Mare says

What Lexy said.

I’m going to start calling to confirm aversive events on a regular basis.

I guess Death was distracted by the parade…

Becca says

Thanks, all. Every time I thought of this message while in the dentist’s chair, I would snortle, which made things difficult, as you might imagine. Especially when she called Janey in to help out with a filling in the back.

North, maybe he was stuck in traffic!

sarpon says

Haq! Well, you fooled Death. Obviously, it was a ploy to get you to go the walk in dental clinic in Samarra.

Jane says

Your appointment with death completely kicks the butt of every hilarious Google transcription I’ve ever gotten. That is AMAZING.
