30 minutes can make a difference in traffic conditions

I went to the dentist this morning for a 7:30am appointment.

Usually when I go in for teeth cleaning or any other dentist appointment it's a 7am appointment.

That 30 minutes sure was a difference in traffic. There was less traffic in the opposite direction (heading towards a major E/W bridge and major N/S freeway) then normal, and coming home there was way less traffic then I go for the 7am appointment.

Coming home is when I would be in heavy traffic since I would be caught up with those people heading for that bridge and freeway.

I still got home before it was time for work, so maybe I should start going for dental appointments for 7:30am instead of 7.

Someone else had a 7am appointment which is why I had to take the 7:30, and for a change it meant the staff was there before me.....LOL

Usually I'm there before they are for 7am appointments.

I wish more medical offices would think about people who work and open early some days and/or stay late some days.

All our clinic's (medical) open early.  A few of them before 8, but the majority at 8.  They stay open until 6 p.m. here, except Thursday, then they stay open until 8 p.m.

Of course, if it's the weekend, you'll need to go to E.R.  Emergency or not.

My doctors office is open until 1pm on Saturday for urgent care call-ins which I used before, which I like. My mother's dentist used to open two Saturdays a month which was nice when I had to start taking her.

I think more offices are starting to get the hint to get business they have to get out of the M-F 9-5 mind set.

Nothin' worse so far as traffic than when trying to get to an appointment.

So glad I don't have to deal with that crap anymore {#basic-laugh.gif}

What are the odds an accident any given day would tie up traffic along your route to the dentist?

It's all surface streets so I have options to get around any issues.
