Today I had a very pleasurable day!
Today I returned to Tel Aviv, to deal with getting my hearing aid fixed. I also went to a place there for a mammogram. First I went to the Medton corporate offices on Ben Yehuda. I asked to speak with Shay -- CEO of Medton. He was not available for an hour and a half. I had to then explain to the receptionist that I could not wait that long, I had another appt at 4 PM and I was from out of town, etc. I also had to explain to her my reason for needing to speak with Shay. She was very nice to me and she made a few calls to see if she could help me get connected to the person who could fix my hearing aid. I also showed her the letter from Peer Lauritson to Shay and the agreement between them vis-a-vis my hearing aid.
She was successful and told me to go to the Medton office around the corner on Mendele -- this was the first Medton office I had visited two weeks ago. When I arrived at that office, they were waiting for me and very welcoming. They took the hearing aid and looked at it. Turned out that the wire/tube needed to be replaced. They were able to replace it right then and there and voila! I had my hearing aid back and was able hear in my left ear once again!
Then I retraced my steps to get back to my car which was parked in a lot and drove to the next place for my mammogram. I had to park several blocks away as there was no parking anywhere near the building. I arrived a bit early but was able to be seen immediately. I had the mammogram taken and then was able to leave and head home.
So, what was it about doing all this that gave me such pleasure?
I conducted all my business today in HEBREW. ALL OF IT! Such a small thing that! And yet it gave me such pleasure. I love speaking Hebrew...
