Talking in My Sleep

My client was a resident doctor who worked long, odd shifts.  I offered her evening and weekend appointments, but she wondered if we could set up a meeting at 6:00 am for her to sign contracts.

An appointment at 6 requires me to arise before 5:00 am to be semi-groomed and partially alert, and I really did not want to do that. I said no, and so she asked, “What if I bring you coffee?”

I don’t drink coffee, I replied, and really, she was hiring me to look out for her interests. I if I got up at 4:45 am, I know that I wouldn’t be sharp enough to protect her from anything at all. Wasn’t there another solution?

“Well, I could come on my day off if you think that’s better,” she said, sounding reluctant. “It’s just that I hate to waste time I could be sleeping.”

Um, yeah… me, too.
