Been a year since I quit WoW for the third time. You're making me nostalgic, why.
It's not any worse than couples posting personal details on facebook or twitter. We just wear better clothes here.
I wish I could avoid it, but I poop 3-5 times a day. Usually two or three of those are at work so I have no choice.
That may be so, but I don't have either so haven't yet become desensitized to it. Facebook is awful and Twitter is only marginally less awful only because there are no pictures.
Over the holidays I saw an acquaintance I've known since I was a teenager and she told me to look her up on Facebook if I wanted to do something. Maybe she didn't want to be too forward or something but I couldn't give less of a shit if she gave me the address to her grandmother's wake -- I like talking to her and wanted more time to do it. Since when did personal social interaction become so grueling and torturous that it needed to be anesthetized through Facebook?
I think my insurance company just told me to lie to my doctor.
I was trying to make an appointment for 3 things: a Physical, a fresh STD screen, and to complain about some occasional pain I have been having in my sternum since the last time I was at the doctor (I was doing Judo at the time so it was probably just bruised and would get better). Figured I could knock them all out in one visit. Doctor's office told me my last physical was in march so I would have to check if my insurance is based on a calendar year or if I would have to wait until march for another physical.
The insurance company woman tells me that it is calendar year so I am good for the physical (which has no copay) but that if I go in there with something wrong, it will turn into a diagnostic visit and I will be charged. She then suggested that I go to the physical, do the normal physical things, and then when asked, say that I feel fine and there's nothing wrong. Then I could go later for a diagnostic visit (which would make me look dumb..."oh yeah, you know how I said everything was fine?...actually this has been bothering me for the past 9 months")
I can't figure out why she would say this. Was she trying to save me money? I need to have this looked at...so whether I go for a separate visit before or after the physical for a diagnostic...I will have to pay either way. If I have to go twice, won't the insurance company end up paying *more* money? I just want to have these 3 things taken care of...shouldn't I do it all at once?
TLDR: Insurance woman suggested that I say I am fine during my physical and then come back for a second visit to talk about what is actually bothering me.
That's cool though, because the American healthcare system is the best in the world.
(Not trying to drag CE here, but occurrences like the above are what make me laugh when someone mentions the greatness of privatized healthcare as if ipso facto it's the most effective.)
I agree wholeheartedly, why. I miss the days of inkwells and parchment.
Pass me my quill, damn it. I'm itching to correspond with an acquaintance in New Haven.
Ah, the greatest city in America.
are you serious? i do see grown adults at urininals who drop trou and i have the same WFT R U KIDDING ME mental thought each time. you need to learn how to do what indesertum says below. its easy.
Wow and a small laugh.
i am sorry, but this might be the biggest asshole of a post i have ever seen here. i can only assume you refer to the canuker family. who are both very kind posters and all around nice people as far as anyone can tell. and for you to go and make assumptions about their relationship is downright disgusting. who the fuck are you to judge their marriage or anything about them. maybe they are not near each other when they post, and maybe they are and its an activity they enjoy together, no different than many other things couples may do together and enjoy.
and on top of that to go ahead and point out your suppositions here publicly, as if you have some need to call out a couple and disparage them, is as well, disgusting. what is your problem.
and no, you can not just go ahead and make a shit-head comment and say if you dont like this dont respond. it doesnt work like that. when you act like an ass, people get to call you out.
My suspicion is the insurance lady is a moron.
Dude, I am joking.
So there's really no reason to go for separate visits right?
This should be a single visit thing--check out my dick, check out the rest of my body, and oh yeah, this thing that I hoped would go away is still here, lets talk about that.
Sorry, why - normally I'm on board with your opinions but this time I'm not.
Where we differ is that married couples are still two individuals, and sometimes profoundly different people, each with their own interests and groups of friends. It doesn't mean they don't overlap or don't communicate. And not referencing the other once in a while would be that much more creepy. Then again the wife and I are on facebook, and we talk to each other (in person, face to face) as well.
Further thoughts: friends are friends but people change, grow up, move along. I don't keep up with all my old buddies. Some I just can't relate to any longer. It is what it is.
