speaking of getting their sh*t into a pile:
nurse from my clinic called.
There is no 2nd sample from my donor in the freezer.
nurse looked at paperwork.
saw that nurse who does the ordering from sperm bank wrote down that she ordered 2 vials.
called sperm bank who said that when the ordering nurse called, she only ordered one.
so only one was delivered.
and only one was charged to my credit card.
And I suppose that the blame will fall to ME, because I didn't check my card statement to notice that they made a mistake (It's just coming due right now anyway).
Because I'm working with a big clinic attached to a big hopsital (sic) that has protocol for absolutely freaking everything, there is no way I could get uppity and demand that they order another vial right this very second, have it couriered right this very minute to the clinic and get it processed, because the nurse who orders the swim teams is off today, everyone who does the sperm processing goes home in 7 minutes and it wouldn't be ready until tomorrow afternoon if it were actually ordered today (which it couldn't be because the nurse who does the ordering is off today), and if it were actually ordered today (which it couldn't be) and arrived today and processed tonight (which it couldn't be) it wouldn't be ready until tomorrow afternoon and it's impossible for them to do an insemination at any time other than 8 IN THE F*ING MORNING.
So who's at fault here, and are there any good suggestions as to any form of recompense I could seek? Since I'm not out any more money, really, I'm saving myself the cost of the wigglies, the processing and the appointment, all of which I will have to pay next time anyway... the only loss to me, really, is possibly a pregnancy this cycle, and maybe a couple of months' time (if it's another 14 days til I get my period and then another 40 til I ovulate again, ha!).
Really, it boils down to human error, and I suppose I should be forgiving, but I just feel like pulling my hair out, especially considering how long it takes me to ovulate.
sorry, another self-centered post.
s&d, great story, gonna forward that to my wife who reacts to any suggestions that she might carry a baby with 'HELL, NO!', if you don't mind.
