> More questions for club members:
> Holidays -- cards? Gifts? I'm thinking something little and symbolic.
Never have. I occasionally whine about not seeing him though.

> Office comfort -- too hot, too cold - Do you speak up or dress in layers?
Speak up. And dress in layers.

> You drive in the parking lot at the same time. You are a tiny bit early (8 min). Do you wait until they go in to the building or get out and walk in with them.(I was saved by the bell - my cell rang!)

I avoid him at all costs outside the office. I've been known to duck into restrooms to avoid sharing an elevator.
> Your appointment usually falls on Thursday. Do you make an appointment on another day that you KNOW will be totally booked and you are being "sqeezed" in (admitting to the NEED)...or do you skip to the next week? (
If I need to yes. It's never been a major problem though. I guess he's not overly booked. I refuse any weekend appointments he offers though, even if I do need them.

> About reading Psych books - do you tell what you are reading? Give them a copy?

Took me years, but I tell him now. I started by using Babble as the source of my knowledge. He now laughs about it. We were talking DSM-IV today and I was telling him the necessary conditions for a diagnosis to be made, he disagreed but said I probably knew more about it than he did. (I did - we looked it up.) Then I gave him a mini history lesson on the changes between DSM-IIIR and DSM-IV. He took it waaaay better than biofeedback guy.

Gave him a book once, offered to pay him to read it. He didn't, nor did he return copy to me.
