Yeah E.Q, I was annoyed when I called my dentist to get an appointment. She is often sending out things about "now accepting new patients", so I thought maybe I could get in sort of soon. Nope, 6 month wait.

Bob Ross, the artist who used to appear on PBS painting "happy little trees", used to be a Master Sargent in the Air Force before he took up painting. A Sargent yelling at new recruits to scrub the latrine or whatever just seems like the polar opposite of his laid back on camera persona. Here's the article cited by Wikipedia.
