So I just remembered that I had started this a few weeks ago - maybe even a month ago! It's not that I didn't have anything "favorite" happen to me, I just simply forgot. Huh, I literally see brain cells falling out every day of my life.
So I thought I would share a favorite happening of this week - it just happened today. I went to my doctor's appointment - which takes about 1 hour in all, while time with the doctor is probably around 5 minutes. Anyways, I wanted to make our last payment today - wahoo! If you pay early, supposedly, there is a 10% discount - and so I didn't want to miss out on that. Usually I balk at 10%, but when the total due is in the thousands of dollars, it, ummmm, makes a good difference. So as I was waiting I went up to the Desk Gal and asked if I could just make my final payment now. They had some discrepancy with how much they said I had paid and my receipts - so I brought in the receipts to clear it up. Anyways, the Desk Gal had to talk with the Billing Lady to figure everything out, and meanwhile I got called back (since I had waited 25 minutes in front, I guess I was due my wait of 25 minutes in the room).
So after my 5-minute chat with the doctor, I came out, scheduled my next appointment and then asked if they figured the payment all out. I was told we were done paying and didn't owe any more! The Billing Lady said she quoted us 20% off originally, or something like that. I don't know if I believe that totally, though! I just think people give you breaks when they know you pay cash and have no insurance.
Especially the Big Guy Upstairs (due all to tithing, of course).
