I'm assuming he meant it would have been deadly if their neighbor didn't drive him to the ER or call an ambulance. and if the neighbors didnt do that... then OP should be dead right now...

i hate wen fmls have all these questions in the post, like, "worst part?" or "his response?" it makes them sound like they like being a "victim" like theyre asking how their lives could suck any more

How about saying that a poisonous snake has a "deadly" snake bite. And then you get bit by it. And then you go the hospital and get some kind of anecdote. Then it still has a deadly snake bite, but you aren't dead.

Why would you tell a person to use a correct adjective when all they were doing was attempting to share a horrible experience? Way to be an insensitive prick.

I did, because the story isn't real, or at best the OP was being a drama queen. No pawn shop would give money for a used asthma inhaler. The inhaler itself costs $1 or so new, and it's the medicine in it that's expensive. Pawn shops can't buy or sell medicine. Probably, the OP (who is ten years old) is an idiot, and he loses his inhaler. He asks his dad if he'd seen the inhaler, and the dad jokingly says, "I pawned it for beer money." The OP gets so upset that he actually HAS an asthma attack, or perhaps fakes one. He goes to a neighbor's house and asks for a ride to the emergency room. But then, the joke's on the dad, because they don't have health care, and he ends up with a $700 medical bill.

#83, some people WILL pay for an inhaler off someone and they are NOT a dollar. Inhalers with medication require a prescription and cost a decent amount of money and that also depends on the type of inhaler which, guessing by the fact that the asthma attack was severe, was Advair which is expensive because it has steroids in it.

Sorry but you're wrong. Advair isn't an emergency inhaler. It wouldn't help him in an asthma attack. It's used twice a day and meant to prevent them. Advair is expensive as all get out. Mine runs about $250 USD a month if I didn't have insurance. The kind of inhaler you use to stop an asthma attack is an albuterol inhaler. They will stop an asthma attack and cost about $10 USD without insurance.

If it's an emergency inhaler, there's no way to know how much is left in the cartridge. For all the buyer would know, it might be empty. Either the dad was making a joke or this is a fake story. Either way, the OP is a drama queen.

Actually, I get mine free from my doctor's office. Albuterol Sulfate, with the regular inhaler piece, and a spacer, all free. And insurance has nothing to do with it, it's samples from the various drug companies.
