What qualifications for a doctors receptionist?

What qualifications for a doctors receptionist? In the past it was easy, all that was required was that you were blatantly rude. Now it seems (probably EU directive) that you have to be grossly obese and grotesquely ugly also.

bumpkin ... you seem to have a chip on your shoulder. Do you feel better now - having vented your spleen?

I must be lucky, our receptionists are young and gorgeous!

... and also, you can't judge a book by it's cover ... same maxim applies to doctors' receptionists, I reckon ;o]

Well they won't last long unless their specialty is rudeness.

I can honestly say that I have never come across a rude doctor's receptionist in my life.

Could it be anything to do with how one approaches them?

Quite right Forty Shades of Grey for example does not sound rude.

bumpkin - Are you by any chance confusing your doctor's surgery with your vet's? What have they done to upset you?

Our receptionists at both are pleasant and mainly slim. They have to be polite nowadays.

What's that old proverb about 'reaping what you sow'?!

The doctor's practice I frequent, seems to now have a change of staff on occasions, and the replacements all seem fair minded and reasonably fit and of 'average' build.

The only problem at times is how each individual works, completely different to each other when requesting an appointment or when attempting to leave a message, that wants passing on to the GP.
