Waste of time

What a monumental waste of time that was for all concerned. Gemma had booked us both an appointment with the nurse at our GPs surgery to look at getting the jabs we'll need to go away. When we went in and started to explain where we were going the nurse jumped up, disappeared off out of the door and then came back saying, 'Sorry, with complex travel plans we've got to refer you off to the specialist clinic at North Sea Medical Centre'. I don't see what the problem is, I guess the jabs required for Malaysia (for instance) will be a superset of those required elsewhere. If I'd gone in and just said I was going to Malaysia, I'd probably have had several needles in my arm by now. So I've wasted an afternoons flexi-time, they've wasted a 40 minute appointment slot at the surgery and now I'm going to have to pay for my jabs at a private clinic. At least Gemma won't have to pay much because she got mostly everything when we went to Mauritius (I didn't bother). I have a headache now and I'm grumpy.
