One character quality of a successful person is the ability to ask for what you want. I had an opportunity to do this earlier this summer when I went to my dentist.
I really like the dentist I go to, but I previously had a bad experience with one of the dental hygienists there a couple years ago, and then again this past summer.
The incident a couple years ago happened when a certain hygienist was injecting Novocaine into my mouth so I could get a crown. She was really aggressive with the needle, and when I said something about it, she said “Oh, you’re just sensitive.” I said “No…three other people in this office have done this procedure without hurting me, and YOU are hurting me.” Then I was shocked to hear her ask, “So do you want me to STOP?” I said “Well, no, because I need this.” Her attitude was really sarcastic and completely unprofessional. When the appointment was over, I expressed a preference to never have this person work on me again.
