I'm on your behalf, that would wind me up too! (however, whilst writing this it occurred to me that maybe the person who usually opens up is suddenly ill or something, so I may be inclined to withhold my face until I knew the reason for it. If when it (eventually) opens they are very apologetic and nice about it, and there is a genuine reason for it then I'd be ok)

At least she didn't dare question me about my need for an urgent appointment and gave me one for 11am without first asking for proof that there is a limb hanging off or some other evidence that death is imminent. I would call them Rottweilers but that would be unkind to Rottweilers
I know our surgery keeps a few 'emergency' appointments each day but if you don't get in at 8.30am, when the surgery supposedly opens, for one of them then the usual malingerers who turn up with every sniffle take them.
