I do not want to go to Tatooine for this surgery

When last we left out hero, Yoda had promised her that the defective clone would call her back.

Yoda is of course very strong with the force. It wasn't even 9 am when my cell phone rang and I received the promised transmission. Now, it turns out that Yoda has surgery times at three different hospitals, but one of them is the South Shore Hospital, which might as well be on Tatooine. Of the three choices I'd prefer to get it done at Brigham & Womens. Its in Boston, and enugent went there for her pregnancy complications & baby removal and apparently received very good care. The other choice is also in Boston, and is probably OK too. Of course the first date available was on Tatooine on June 5th. Then there was supposedly time available at B&W on June 9th. That's fine, I told the clone. She said she'd check on specific times and call me back.

She did indeed call me back about 5 minutes later. It turns out there are no times left on June 9th. She may be able to get me in at the other Boston Hospital on June 8th after a lecture. I said fine. She said she'd call me back about that. She never did. I called back around 4 and discoverd that she had left at noon.

Now, maybe I am overreacting, but since it seems like it only takes a short amount of time to check these things, you'd think she could have gotten back to me. There is also the small matter of the longer I wait for a firm booking, the more other people will be scheduled into the earlier dates. Argh. This happens to be a big deal to me. I understand its not a big deal to the clone, but I want Sideous out, and I want him out yesterday. I want to get on with my life, specifically the trying to have a baby aspect of it. Is it too much to ask that the clone finish up with scheduling my surgery before she takes the entire afternoon off?

I'm contemplating where or not I want to tell the Jedi council that they should ask the Kaminoans for their money back on that clone.
