A tempting offer, but I'm not falling for it....

September 23rd, 2008 at 07:08 pm

Today is a fund-raiser night at a local restaurant to benefit my daughter's school. I don't particularly care for the food there -- plus I already planned to cook tonight -- so I've decided the school will get over our NOT being there.

This morning I had to go to the doctor for a biopsy thing I have to get done twice year. The doctor was "concerned" that he didn't get a good enough sample and suggested I might need to come back in two months for another biopsy. I happened to be in excrutiating pain at the moment that he said this and suggested he might want to refund my $30 copay if he didn't do his job "right." He didn't think it was that funny... .

After the not-so-fun doctor visit, I stopped off at the post office to ship off a jacket that I sold on eBay, so I'm adding $9.54 to the challenge and to the Vespa fund. My new totals are:

Challenge: $12,674.51

Vespa: $258.71

    you know- that's true...why dont you get to go in the 2nd time for free? I never thought about it, but that seems unfair.

    Doctors, dentists, hairdressers, you name it, can all be bargained with. There is nothing wrong with asking for a discount or in your case a totally deserved free visit.
