Toot Toot

This morning we took Wyatt for his 30-day check up. The doctors office informed us that Wyatt was not covered on our health insurance and that we need to call the insurance company and get everything straightened out. Lauren and Wyatt stayed at the doctor’s office while I took Maxfield home to call the insurance company.

When I called the insurance company I informed the customer service person that I was watching a rambunctious and loud two year old and I asked for their patience if I got distracted. I was bounced around from one department to the next and was put on hold several times. Sometimes there was “hold music” and sometimes there was not. While on hold I was playing with Max and helping him with a puzzle. Finally Melissa came on the line and asked me to hold for a few more minutes while she looked up some info. She would come back, ask me a question and then put me on hold again.

So with the phone cradled in the nook of my shoulder and head I continued to play with Max. I was on hold for the umpteenth time when Max farted really loud. I laughed and he laughed and he tried to squeeze more out. I asked Max, “Did you just toot?” He giggled some more. So I asked again, “Are you tooting? Did you just toot?”

Just then, over the phone Melissa said, “No I didn’t toot.”

I did not realize she was still on the line.

But what if she had and she's just blaming Max?

I am sure when she got off the phone with you she was telling all her co workers!

Hope all the insurance was figured out. What a pain!

Maybe your insurance company wouldn't cover Wyatt because your "nutrition facts" still say just 1 kid, lol.

It would have been even funnier if she had said "I THOUGHT I smelled something!"

It was cute that she answered you. And yeah, she TOTALLY told all her co-workers about it. It also might be in the company newsletter too!

When you sign the insurance forms, I think you should use your alias. :)

Toot, toot!

After we had our twins, the fight with the insurance company to add TWO children took forever. They kept adding one and taking the other off. I think we got it fixed by the time we changed companies.

Gotta appreciate Melissa's sense of humor.

Of course, I would have been more gross about it had I been on the other end of the phone.

Something like "Wow! No more beans for me. You can smell it all the way from there?"

A chip off the old block...

I can see why your insurance co doesn't know about Wyatt! Your "nutrition facts" still show "kids 1". Time to update... Kids 2!

Toot too chugga chugga... so sad that when I see the word "toot" anywhere I think of that Wiggles song.

Very funny story.....I just hate to have to call any business because of being put on hold, or given a menu to pick out what dept you want.....yuck.....

If you'll excuse me, but I'm going to have to put you on hold right now........
