Angry ramblings

Just let me rant OK?!? Now I must also say it isn't right to lump all folks together but the majority of my list have created such tremendous problems in this country I'm putting them all in the same GREEDY group. I despise greed!!!


I am very annoyed and quite angry with the following folks:

  • Wall Street...............these folks have ruined my portfolio and maybe have put a dent in yours as well.
  • Banks............now these morons are able to pay back the bailout $$$ because they have increased the interest rates on most of our (yours and mine) credit cards. So I have mailed back all my credit cards to the morons and told them to find another sucker. We still have just one card and trust me that's all we need.
  • Auto makers................were these dopes asleep when Honda and Toyota came out with their fuel saving vehicles? Was there not one person sitting around the table that suggested to compete with Hinda or Toyota...........guess not.
  • Health Insurance Companies...............now these yahoo's are really the greediest bunch (IMHO). I will share with you one story that is true but happened several years ago.
Husband and I owned our own business, had our own health insurance and even was able to offer it to employees. Well one afternoon my appendix decided to explode and I ended up in the ER, then intensive care and it goes on for about six weeks. I survived in spite of the treatment but that is not the problem. Three items stood out when I saw the itemized bill one was a ten dollar box of tissue, second item was a four dollar hairbrush that appeared on the bill twelve times and the last item really bout put me over the edge a box of tampons and a package of kotex.

Now I should tell you I had a hysterectomy years before the explosion of the appendix. OK I pick up the phone, get thru to the person handling my claim, explain that two of the items I never saw while being a guest at that hospital and yes I probably had a box of kleenex but ten dollars, come on folks.

Here's where it gets good, the claims person said "well to be honest it isn't worth fussing over". They weren't charging me they were billing the insurance company but isn't it WRONG to pay for something you never received.

Now do y'all understand why health care insurance is out of control, this is just one example and there must be thousands more.

I remember that explosion and I'm glad you survived in spite of the treatment. Dopes are dopes.
