Apparently mine doesn't think one should sit in any room that isn't brightly lit (and I hate her office because it is). Anyway, one day last week one of the overhead fluorescent lights in her waiting was burnt out (but 3 others were still going strong). When she opened the door to call be back to her office she said she was sorry I had to sit there in the dark (it wasn't dark at all). I told her there was no reason to apologize, that I actually liked it better. As we took our seats she said, "I guess this is where I repeat, I'm sorry you had to sit there in the dark."

What the heck? I know it's stupid, but it's still eating at me. Why on earth should I be made to feel bad because I dislike harsh lighting??? lol What I wanted to tell her was that her office is very unwelcoming because of those fluorescent lights and that she'd do well to make it more warm and cozy by using lamps. Honestly, I do feel really exposed by all that bright light.
