Good day/bad day but a result nonetheless

I went to the doctor as the whole right side of my face was aching. "You have a dental infection, you will need to go to the dentist". So I toodle off to the dentist. The dentist can't see me but says if it is an extraction you need, you will need antibiotics first.
I'm lucky (or so I thought) as my Doctor is exiting the surgery. "I cannot prescribe anti-biotics for a dental problem". I toodle off back to the dentists. They are shut for lunch. Receptionist (take away Subway in hand) tells me to come back at 2.30.
The pain gets worse. I have an appointment with a client I cannot miss. I jam 30mg of Codein in the gap between the offending tooth and another one.
I did not make it back to the dentists in time. The pain is now excrutiating. I'll have to wait another day, get the prescription, wait a few days for it to kick in and hope to get an appointment in the near future.
I said to myself I am not waiting that long:
This is the second toof submitted to dear old forumites:

What a releif. Then full of the joys with not an ounce of discomfort, I watch in kinks my (nearly) 3 year old attempt to wear all the (dirty) laundry at the same time:

Happy days. Now I don't have to run some arsy crudder into the ditch to vent my (mixed with pain) frustration. Peace to all.

    I was tempted to go on there and ask for advice on how to blow my bonus...... Then I remembered - I'm married and therefore it's already gone

    What! You got a bonus? I remember them.
    I almost sympathise with El Piña. I've nearly finished the antibiotics I was given for my toothache, then back to the torture chamber in a couple of days to see what's going on. Deep joy

    Sat here with a smile on my face (well almost all of a smile).

    @Veronese69. I'll do the job. If you want to DIY, it's the most fantastic feeling of self empowerment.

    No, if you were the once tortured and now exiled Prince of Nigeria I would.

    Yes, but you'll have to wait till I get my communting machine complete with DIY medical kit for the panniers together.
    In the meanwhile, I want you to prepare yourself. Use a single malt mouthwash 12 times a day to numb the niggling little f**k*r.
    I will need a coal fire to heat up my poker so it is red hot and sterile (something it has not been ever since I went to Middlesborough - can you arrange this?

    Poker? That's comparatively civilised. I thought the Scottish way to remove teeth involved drinking heavily followed by a well placed right hook.

    As the Kenyan ambassador to Scotland, I have come to the following conclusion about this strange mix of 'ginga heided' tribes people. Some wear blue outfits and some wear green and white outfits no matter what time of year, no matter what the weather:

    I am attempting to civilise them. I actually think a foreign army could galvanise them a bit more if only they would get themselves together and invade. They could impose proper games like drinking Tea (not eating 'Tea'), playing cricket (not Shinti), playing Football (not FootieVolleyHoofitJimmyGetStuckintaeHimKicktheBastar'Kunt).
    They need to move away from the split personality vernacular tendency to say 'wee' Elephant and getting all sentimental about the year gone by at hogmanay saying inexplicably stoopid things like "it's all over" at the same time.
    In all my international travel, I have been all over the world - Trecodillot, St Ives, St Agnes, Bodmin, Exeter, I have never met a tribe of people who take no pleasure in weddings, they almost always end up in more than one fight and I have never seen so many people exiting funerals en masse looking so happy.
    When I return the the comfort of my Kiberu corrugated tin hut and my 37 children, 5 wives, 3 goats and 12 chickens, I will have many stories to tell.

    I think it's wishful thinking on piña's part.
