UK from 18th December to 7th January - my longest ever holiday!

Yeah right LJ.... your always on hols... I am just jealous :(

Isn't 'partying it up in Moscow' an option?

06-12-2004, 00:00
I'm going home for 6 weeks (my longest ever holiday too but enforced...) to have my right eye operated on in the UK after a (well known) Russian surgeon made a botched lasik op of it 2 years ago and left me virtually disabled for 2 years:(
On a brighter note, how NICE it is to have flights TWICE as short as they used to be when I lived in MOscow and not to be standing in that passport control queue for ages:) The joys of not living on a visa:)

Please reveal the name of this Russian surgeon, as many of us are considering Lasix and need to know whom to avoid.

I think you'll find if she does it might count as libel, and she'd have a job trying to prove otherwise - all surgery carries risks.

This is Russia and we are anonymous here :).

I am going skiing (to Caucasus, Elbrus) :)

Smurfette is quite right and that's why I deliberately haven't named the surgeon and yes, I accept that all surgery carries risks although this surgeon made a bad mistake in the prescription my eyes arrived at and I have had 2 years of hell as a result. I'm only lucky I found a top class man in the UK who is able and willing to salvage the situation by another operation. This was after spending thousands and even having had an MRI scan to check that the double vision and blinding headaches weren't due to something more sinister.
My advice of course to people considering Lasik is don't do it but some people have done and been happy so it's simply a question of whether you want to take the risk.

DJB ok but...at least your work consists in making people having a good time ;) which is to me quite a nice job :agree:
btw, I'm not saying that you do not deserve holidays ;)

09-12-2004, 16:39
i am not complaining as such, i go on vacation when places are quiet and not full of people and you literally also have to pay twice for the air you breath...

Yes oh, the joy and pleasure of helping a bunch of uncooth, uncivilised vodka swilling yobos with no idea of what a good time really is, have a nice evening. I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity to serve such people, I do believe that I should even pay for the pleasure I must get out of it.

Frankly, if you must know, I hate my job, everything about it. But hey, that's life.

09-12-2004, 17:30
wow, i did not guess that your clients were so terrible :(
i'll try to come more often then ;) (well i'm french but at least i'm not an "uncivilised vodka swilling yobo with no idea of what a good time really is ;)
