At the Doctor’s Office

I took my Dad to the doctor last week.  While he was back getting his ears cleaned, I overheard some of the other patients checking in.

One woman didn’t have any insurance, so they required her to pay up-front. She couldn’t, so they sent her away.

Another man came in who was about to lose his insurance.   He wanted the doctor to write him a prescription for the next six months so he could get his medication ahead of time. They would have done it, but they checked and discovered his insurance would only allow him to buy 30 days at a time.

I’m supposed to be just super-impressed that the stock market is at an all-time high, but I’m not.
