Rotten Beef….What's Eating You?

  • Aug 31

    Well, now I think it officially sucks to be sick and go to the hospital. I had to make a visit to the local ER about 2 months ago. I signed in, gave my information and insurance info, and was admitted for the night. The doctor stopped by very briefly during my visit (less than 5 minutes) and I was attended to by the nurses the rest of my stay. I was released the next morning, pay my insurance co-pay and was on my merry way.

    Here it is 2 MONTHS later and I get a bill in the mail today. Doesn’t say who it’s from, what it’s for or when I acquired this debt. So I call the number on the bill and I am told it is from the doctor that ahem..”saw me” when I was in the hospital 2 months ago!

    First, WHY the hell are doctors and hospitals billing separately? If I am a mechanic in a garage and I fix your car, should you pay the garage for the repair and then expect a bill from me as well for doing the work? What if I am a chef at a 5 star restaurant? Should you pay the restaurant for the dining experience and then get a bill from me (the chef) for preparing that fine meal you just consumed? Rotten and greedy indeed!

    Second, WHY am I receiving this bill so late? It almost seems as though the doctor came up short on his Mercedes payment one month and went through his past patients to see who he could get to bleed some more! If you can’t get your billing done in a timely manner without having to surprise patients, then you don’t deserve payment!

    Rotten, Rotten, Rotten!!

    What a hell of a way to start the day. An email and a phone call telling me there have been some strange charges appearing on my credit card. I log into my bank account and sure enough, someone has been shopping all over town at my expense! Trips to the grocery store, gas station and even Walmart! If you’re gonna steal my credit card, DON’T shop at a place I’d never go to like Walmart! If they are going to steal, why the hell can’t these scumbags steal from people who can afford it? Unemployed with no income at all and they have to take even more from me? I hope when you get caught, your cell mate takes your blanket!

    I thought Home Depot  was  one of the biggest supporters of the US military and veterans. I’ve applied through  their  online application at least a couple of weeks ago. I’m a veteran of the US Military and I  still have not heard a thing. So much for their “Veteran Friendly” hiring practices! Anyone from Home Depot reading this??

    Nivea for Men has apologized for an ad in Esquire magazine that critics called racially insensitive.

    Hey all you whiney a-hole babies, grow the f up! this is only advertising. There are not ‘closet racists’ hiding in Corporate America! If I got offended every time I saw an advertisement aimed at red headed step children, jolly fat men, or people driving foreign cars I’d have no place to shop or nothing to buy. It’s like radio/TV, if you don’t like it, turn the dial. Now go dry your eyes you cry babies!

    What the hell happened to the days when you could bring a check written from Bank XYZ along with your proper identification and get it cashed with no hassles?

    I hope someone high up from Regions Bank reads this because I think your banking practices are really f***ed up and I’m being nice when I say that! I bring a check drawn on YOUR establishment and you try to charge me $30 because I am not a customer of yours? THAT’S OUTRAGEOUS! This certainly is no way to win customers in my opinion! I’ve had previous negative experiences at your bank but this one is the last straw! I will NEVER bank at Regions Bank! Never, Never, Never!
