On Vaccines, Rude People, and NOT Being a Morning Person

I'm not a morning person.

I'm not a patient person, although I'm improving.

I'm not the sort of person who tolerates blatant rudeness.

So, nursey-pooh, WTF makes you think that you can call me and wake me and my kids up at 7:30 in the freaking morning to reschedule our lunch time doctor's appointment, and then not answer the freaking phones when I call you right back?????

I get their answering service: "Oh, they're not answering the phones until about ten after eight. You might want to try back then."

Irate Night Owl: "Look, they woke me & my kids up at 7:30 this morning telling me to call them. I'd like to take care of this now."

Dork: "Oh, they called you?" Yeah, that's what I said the first two times. "Let me try to page someone."

Wait. Wait. Wait.

"They're not answering the phones. Can I get your name and number and have them call you back?"


8:10, pager: Ring ring.

I haven't called them back, since I was busy getting my two babies ready for the day. They can wait on me now.

I'm starting to take this as a sign. I've always been leery about vaccinations; they scare the bejesus out of me. I don't trust them. We accidently skipped Ivy's four month, so she's a set behind. Now we're supposed to reschedule again, and I'm just thinking, Maybe I keep getting icky feelings because we just shouldn't do it.

Does anyone have any good, reliable links on vaccinations &/or how to legally abstain? I feel like I need to follow my gut and look into this more, and it's not completely just because I'm pissed off.
