Bronchitis...Again

Bronchitis is kicking my ass...again.  I just had this 2 months ago, and I NEVER, I mean NEVER get bronchitis.  Currently though, it is throughly ahead in the ass kicking department.  Hopefully the antibiotics will help and I will be back to my normal, ranting, cynical self very soon. Let me just tell you about what happened yesterday.  So I went to the clinic because I was 99.99999% sure I had bronchitis again and needed to get a prescription.  I got there at around 4:30 and the place was packed, I mean packed.  I was going to begrudgingly stick it out until I read the neon orange sign on the receptionist's desk: All persons being treated after 5:00 will be charged a $25.00 fee in addition to all co-payments.  SERIOUSLY?????? WTF???? They are open until 7:00, but if you are seen after 5:00 you get screwed?  Naturally I peaced out of there and decided to suffer for an additional day.  Please explain to me where it makes logical sense to charge a ridiculous fee during your normal operating hours.

In other fun news: the cute teacher down the hall said my sick bronchitis voice was, "all deep and sexy." While another one said, "Eww, sick man voice."  I think I'm going with the cute teacher's opinion....just saying...

I can't believe they charge you an extra fee during their business hours. That's just ridiculous. I hope you feel better soon.

And I'd go with the cute teacher's opinion too =)

Shea-And she was NOT the one who said, "eww sick man voice" Extra 10 cool points to the cute teacher.

Shea and Carolyn-Thank you for being in my camp on the extra charge! I thought I might be being ridiculous and blowing it out of proportion, but I'm glad it's not just me who thinks that's insane to charge extra during regular hours.
