I had to return their call to set up an app’t for a yearly health talk. It’s all I get for a thank you from a grateful nation. OK, that and a pass to use the gym and pool, that’s it. So I make the call and someone answers. She asked my name and SS#, checked the rest of my data, then the interesting part happens… She tells me that the VA is screening for Covid-19 and starts to ask me questions to see if I have it. I stop her and ask her if she’s afraid of getting it over the phone. She laughs and the answer is no so I tell her not to waste both of our time and I got to the reason for my call.
But screening for CV for a phone call. The world has gone insane.
