So, I'm sitting in the doctors office today with my 3 small children paying cash for a visit for 3 kids with pink eye. I'm usually not too nosy, but this guy sits down right next to me and starts talking really loud, so you couldn't help but hear. He has someone with him showing him how to fill out the forms and questionaire for a sliding scale payment because he wants to see the doctor for a regular check up. He kept saying he refused to pay for his doctor visit because he doesn't want to get a job and they should help him. He had no kids, no wife nothing. They told him all he had to pay was $4. That's it. He continued to rant and complain. He said he refused to pay the $4 and that the state is gonna have to pay for that because he doesn't have the $4. The lady said, "seriously, you can't come up with $4?" Then much to my disgust he started asking openly for other things he could get for free from the state as a single guy...
I was trying not to get up and walk out. I'm paying full for three kids and meds, I work, my husband works, and we don't have insurance because we can't afford it! We bust our asses and barely keep our heads above water and here's this guy, what can I get for free. What is wrong with people?!$#@$ I didn't know there were really people out there like this!
