Being told three times that the podiatrists doesn’t need to see you, and that you don’t need an appointment, and that you should drop in any time to see the nurse because it’ll only take a minute — that does not mean the nurse can help you or that she won’t stick you in a room and screw up the doctor’s schedule.

What do you call 100 lawyers buried up to their necks in sand?
Not enough sand.
