Her reasoning was, well, what good would it do now, and she couldn't make the doctor do anything...I offered to take on filing a grievance with her insurance, but no, just let it go.   made me kind of nuts but it's her issue to pursue or not.

She needs to get a reason and not let it go. There could be a medical reason that they didn't complete the operation. When my mother had her ovarian cancer surgery that also included a total hysterectomy, the doctor stated up front that she wasn't sure until she got in there to see everything clearly whether or not she would be able to remove anything. The surgeon could have began the surgery, found something that would stop the surgery and had to close up immediately. I would hope that the surgeon or another doctor would say something, but maybe not.

Does the hospital have a patient's advocate or anyone similar?

My guess is that she thought that once you had the soup and the scallop, you wouldn't be hungry enough to eat two servings of maki also.  (nevermind that you might take it home, etc) So to be 'helpful' and to cut waste, she simply didn't make it for you.  That's the logic I'm operating on anyway... I've heard people complain about this before, so that may be what happened here.

I wonder if she went to that place that made the news a year or two ago because the owner was a control freak and posted that whole list of rules about how much food to order and how to eat it!

I was in a work-sponsored seminar last year on how to manage/supervise the 20-somethings that we recruit.  We were told, literally instructed, to never bother calling them or leaving a voicemail; they just don't listen to them.  Ever.  It's email, Twitter, FB, or text message to reach them.  (and we recruit from the top 5% of students for our positions.)  I found that shocking but learned to use "their language" to talk with them when I need to.  Whatta world.

Oh man, that would make me livid, on either end. If you are managing me, you get to pick how we communicate. If you prefer to conduct the entire relationship by voice-mail, it is my place to figure out how to make that work.

It is called "Eat Less, Move More."

perhaps with a "name" he will believe it!

One is reminded of Richard Jeni's weight-loss program.

The only mitigating factor I can think of is that people knew what they were getting into--you couldn't even eat there till you took a course in sushi etiquette from her, IIRC. Just bonkers!

He still doesn't understand why this hurts my brain...

When I started work over three weeks ago, I decided that I would sometimes take lunch to work with me.  I found Mental Boyfriend's old lunchbox atop the fridge and took that to work with me two days in a row. 

My question is, if keeping the lunchboxes together is so important to this lunatic you choose to date, why exactly was the lunchbox you used on top of the fridge rather than with the other lunchbox in the first place?

That's strange: when I had my hysterectomy for cancer this summer, I was told that the surgeon might have to change the TYPE of surgery he would do based on conditions that weren't predictable, but that I was gettin' spayed that day for sure. :D I can see saying that the doctor wouldn't know if she could remove everything via laproscopic techniques, or perform a vag-hys, but I can't imagine starting surgery and concluding that you couldn't remove the tumor after all.

A couple of exchanges of the the past few years that have made me wonder about other teachers

AD means After Death not Anno Domini

A full moon is physically larger than a new moon. Because it is larger it has a larger gravitational pull. This makes the kids go crazy because they are 80% water and the moon is pulling on their brains. (Any time someone starts the kids are crazy because of the moon stuff - coach now just pulls me out of the room afraid my head will explode)

Thomas Jefferson wrote the US. Constitution 

All the presidents up to and including FDR were of perfect virtue and sterling reputations.  They didn't like the various scandals I recounted. Other's were amazed I did it from memory.

What hurts my brain is people saying: "Ohh, Mr. Seraphia! Don't let Seraphia hold the baby or she'll start wanting one!" Funny, I didn't think pregnancy was contagious.

I will admit, I am susceptible to pregnancy contagion. :) DH and I are pretty firm that we're not going to have another baby. And yet anytime I hold a teeny tiny baby my mind starts whispering things about having a baby. Until the baby cries, or has a diaper blowout, or the mom tells me that she's gotten twelve hours' sleep in the last four days, and then I recall how much I really do not want another baby. 8)
We call that 'baby borrowing'!  "Got that baby Jones?  Hold somebody else's baby for a while, then give it back!"  It's a two-fer bonus - you get to snuggle with a baby for a while, and then you get to hand it back again. (Being an Auntie is great!!!)   ;D
