Not to the same level, but I got really frustrated with mum's caratact operation.
She was told she needed one, and they would write with an appointment. Every week she'd tell me that she hadn't received a date, so I made all the arrangements, made sure there were people to drive us there and back, that I could get time off work, etc, etc.
Get into see the doctor on the day and he checks out mum's eye and then says "It's not too bad, you don't have to have the operation if you don't want to".
Then he looked at my face and said "However, I can see that your daughter disagrees".
Mum told me the other day that it's revolutionised her life. She only needs her specs for reading. Just walking around or watching TV and she doesn't need them anymore.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.
The rest of us are a bit crap.
