Good Time, Bad Time

I went for an X-Ray this afternoon. Nothing serious, just trying to rule out reasons for a certain health issue. Trying to remember if I had ever had  X-Ray before, and I think no!
Anyhow, I had to go to Middlemore Hospital. I have only been there once before as a visitor, and it seemed to be a bloody menagerie to me.
So I gave myself plenty of time to get there, park and find radiology. And I made it into the waiting room 15 mins before my appointment time, as requested.
Shock horror, I then found myself on the  X-Ray table 5 mins before my actual appointment time was booked for! I don't think that has ever happened to me for a medical appointment.
As I drove out of the hospital (after taking this shot on my phone) I thought of all the things I would have time to do seeing as my appointment had gone so smoothly.
Then I waited at a set of traffic light for not 1 phase, not 2 phases, but 7 red light phases. It was not even peak traffic. All the time I had gained evaporated. Back to real time.

    Sad that the reality of Auckland traffic spoiled it all for you!
