Open mouth, Insert foot

We've all done it. Said something we regret immediately. Talked bad about someone only to have them walk into the room and hear. Well it happened with my family tonight.

We were all cracking bad on a local dentist only to find out he was sitting two tables away at the restaurant we were eating at. This dentist is terrible and our uncle is now paying the price. He had a tooth get infected down almost if not all the way to his jaw. He now has to go daily to a specialty dentist to get medicines through an IV. It sounds like he is even having blood sugar issues, which he knew might be a side effect, but it's not been a great experience.

We were also talking about our 2 kids who this local dentist has messed up on too. Alex had a cavity filled once, only for it to become infected because they didn't get all the bad stuff out first. So out came the filling and in came a new filling. This 2nd filling ended up falling out because the tooth was so rotted. The dentist ended up pulling this rotted tooth and we thought all was ok, but we still decided to find a new dentist in another town. We took Alex for his 1st cleaning and X-rays with the new dentist and found out that part of the root of that rotted, pulled tooth were still in there. So we had to have the rest taken out. (Same thing happened with the uncle too) Mariah also had to have a tooth pulled only for us to find out that that didn't all get pulled either and had to have the new dentist go back in. AArrGh! Dental repairs are so costly to begin with only to have crap like this happen.

Anyways, back to tonight. We are all (even Alex was getting into it with his Dad and Grandma) griping only to have this dentist walk right past us! He looked at us kind of funny so we don't know if he heard or not. We all figured that we didn't care. We were all speaking the truth and don't see him anymore. But we still felt horrible.

Said anything lately you regret?
