It’s not only the animals they take care of.
My vet has sold his business and three young ones have taken over, I learned that today when I went there to get a new prescription on Hector’s and Orvars medicine. The old vet will stay for some time of course but I didn’t meet him today, instead I met one of the new, a young woman. To be a vet is to take care of the animal and the owner so it is very important that the owners likes the vet from the first second. She might have been stressed even though we only were two customers there at the moment. I’m sorry to have to say I don’t like her.
It was quite obvious that she’s a big city woman who already was tired of the people living in the countryside 🙂 When I told her that I wanted the horse variety of the medicine I give to the boys (it’s the same as the dog one but more concentrated so I don’t have to go to the vet every second week) she said it was against the rules. I then said that all veterinarians here do like that she looked at me for a long time and wrote that I should have the horse variety 🙂 I didn’t lie, all vets do like that here since they know we have other things in life to do that to run to the vet for prescriptions 🙂 The woman in the pharmacy was a bit surprised too about the vets reaction, all vets do like that she said 🙂 I’ll give them one more chance to convince me to go there, if they fail I’ll go to the vet I was this summer here in Falköping. I do hope I get the chance to meet my old vet before he leaves for good, I want to thank him for all the help he’s given me during the years.
We’re having the election to our parliament on Sunday and the parties are doing their best to convince us to vote for them. They are all now competing in who will raise the taxes the most to restore the social security net the latest government has destroyed during the eight years they’ve had the power. Even the conservatives wants to raise our taxes a lot because they finally understood that we rather have high taxes and a good social security net than low taxes and no net at all 🙂 Then we have the racist party that not only wants to raise the taxes, they also want to toss out all immigrants. There’s a problem with that of course, when is one counted as a true Swede and when is one counted as an immigrant 🙂 I am for instance counted as a second generation immigrant (didn’t know that until last year when I did that DNA test 🙂 ) am I allowed to stay or must I move to the former Yugoslavia 🙂 More about that some time in the weekend.
It’s time for a pot of tea and perhaps a short nap, I’m still tired after the overtime and those apples 🙂
Have a great day!
