#1, that's not true. Logically, there has to be one poor schmuck who is the worst off of everyone. Also, just because others have more serious problems than you, that doesn't help you in dealing with yours. If I am pissed off that my Ferrari doesn't have enough trunk space, the starving kids in Africa are not going to help me get my polo mallets in there!

#32, that's bullshit. Your problems can be serious and urgent to you, regardless of what other people's problems are. Hey, I hired some African kids to run behind my Ferrari carrying my polo mallets and they are happy to be paid with after-dinner mints I stole from the country club. Win-win, they're no longer starving and I can enjoy my car. Yay!

Ah the healthcare debate. Free slow and shitty healthcare, or expensive fast and quality healthcare? On the one hand, free health care doesn't do much good if it takes too long to get an appointment and doctors and surgeons are subpar. On the other hand speedy and excellent healthcare doesn't do much good either if it's too expensive for a lot of people to be able to pay for it.

I live in Denmark. Healthcare is payed over taxes and it works very well. Of course you have to wait sometimes, but it depends on how urgent your needs are. The standard is very high and you still have the opportunity to buy private healthcare, if you can afford it! And yes, it's often possible to get an apointment the same day your order it!

ah ah in terms of healthcare i guess it's US versus the rest of the "western" countrys...and your health system is not considered as efficient at all (the least efficient among la OECD states), and is the most expensive ...

Every time i see an FML about how people are struggling to pay for healthcare it reminds me how good the NHS and free health care is i really hope things change for america soon to help those less well of.

You were in the hospital for TWO DAYS because of...STOMACH PAIN??? Please tell me that after two days they have a better idea of what's wrong with you than your "belly hurts." I was in the hospital for ten hours with stomach pain and I thought THAT sucked.

"Free slow and shitty healthcare"? I have no idea where you're from, but the free healthcare under "Medicare" in Australia is of the highest quality. You'll find that public hospitals have much higher and more advanced equipment than private.

I was actually considering doing the same thing, OP. My prescription is expired and my optometrist's office won't sell me more contacts until I have another eye exam, despite the fact my last four exams have shown no change. I've worn this "two week" pair for five months now, and I'm not eligible for vision insurance through my employer until another year. FBOL.

11- I suggest you do what I do and buy up months of contacts while you still have your prescription. It may be more cost up front but you can pay for exams less often.

Try vennioptical.com. I've gotten glasses off of it before and there's no catch. Amazing prices and all you have to do is imput your prescription information. Just get a copy from the receptionist. It's in your file, they can't deny you it.

That's not that bad I'd rather get the gift of sight than another knitted sweater for your already sizable collection collecting dust in the back right corner of your armoire....
