another NYS Covid vaccine rant with fender bender

headed out today to make a 10a for vacc #2 at the "local" Stony Brook U (45 mins).
10 mins out, guy runs a red as my light goes green.
Make that split second decision, T-bone him or me vs rear tag possibility.
No T-bone. But rear tag. Fortunately pretty light. Thankfully, as the lease is up in 3 weeks. Poor lady behind me just got hers back from the shop.
But still, minor damage and no injuries.

While I'm waiting for the accident report, figure I'll try to resched vacc 2. ha ha ha, what was I thinking? 3 lost people working from home and 3 disconnects later, they can't find my vacc ID.

Get home and deal with insurance company that no longer uses humans.
Then onto the NYS DoH vacc site to reschedule. Crash.
Called again from my land line. Disconnect.
Emailed my local Senates asst. Tells me that appts are no longer necessary (she's wrong, no longer necessary for vacc #1).
And that the 833 number is disconnected. It isn't.
Called 833 back, now the 6th person I've spoken to to resched the appt that is "no longer necessary". My ID # (that I used earlier this morning) no longer comes up. He backs up to my misspelled name and rescheds for tmrw in about 3 mins.


Have I said anything about sciatica that I've been expecting for the 1st time?

Like a day with Family Guys Opie.

fine .... and you?

Jeebus. That's bureaucracy for ya. And I was starting to feel crappy about looking out the window at a gloomy day. Thank you for putting things in perspective.

And best of luck from this point on getting everything squared away.

Makes me feel better about my 30 minute wait to get a drive thru order today, where they were out of the one item I ordered for me, but charged me anyway because it was paid in the app, did not substitute what I asked for as a sub, and then didn’t give my husband what he ordered either. Basically we waited for 30 minutes for someone else’s order. We didn’t check the bag till we got home, because honestly all I wanted to do was leave.
It was a Popeye’s and I wasn’t the first bad experience at a Popeye’s, so never again.

Also, we had lots of Costco stuff in a keep cool bag with ice in the back seat and I was stressing about that, too.

Glad you weren’t hurt in the accident.

You should have just shown up after finishing up at the scene of the collision. They would have taken you.



It is what it is.

you're probably right, but the 1st call I made to the 833 # said they would not. Left hand right hand.

Those are the kind of days when my crystal ball tells me to not get out of bed in the morning.

Just show up NEXT tuesday, and tell them you thought it was "this" tuesday. They'll probably just give you the shot....

I was vaccinated more than a month ago, and I can't get my Doctors office to STOP SCHEDULING ME for vaccination...
I mean, I appreciate their diligence, but, still...

I got my second dose last Wed from the same location where I got the first dose. Even took a picture of the needle in my arm.

Last night I got a text from the "myturn.ca.gov" people saying "Our records show that you haven't received your second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine...."

I never signed up with them, all I can guess is that the vaccine site gave them my cell number when recording the first dose. Hopefully they won't keep contacting me because I don't feel like dealing with all that Fritz encountered trying to contact them about something that's obviously not in their records.

Ha, yep. I'll have to go in and tell them I already have it.
