WE ARE KIND to rude patients at first but if we didn’t do anything to upset them, we will ask them politely to leave. Here’s what got us to this point: A lady brought her granddaughter to an appointment. The woman was rude and accompanied by two very disrespectful women. They insulted staff and made fun of Spanish-speaking patients by going to Google Translate, typing bad words in Spanish and putting them on speaker. When they thought someone was called before their turn they started throwing everything on the counter at our receptionist. We called the police and had them arrested; they had to do community service. The police are now our BFFs and stop by often to make sure “no one is being abused by POP materials.” — Diana Sims, Buena Vista Optical, Chicago, IL
