Companies who lie

I don't believe...

  • Oil companies who tell us they like it when we use less energy.
  • Cigarette companies who tell us we should quit.
  • People who sell us a guaranteed wealth generating system. If their system worked they would keep it to themselves.
  • Pharmaceutical companies who say they are looking for a cure. The money is in treatment, not cure.
  • Any diet pill ad that uses the word "metabolism". They always say "combined with proper diet and exercise." If you had proper diet and exercise, you wouldn't need the pill.
  • Car companies that introduce 35 mile per gallon cars as fuel-efficient. We had more fuel-efficient cars in the 70s.
  • Any chemical that keeps fruit "looking fresh". I want my fruit to be fresh!

I do believe...

  • An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
  • Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
  • A penny saved is a penny earned.

Yet, around 4 to 6 times per year I have to, for one reason or another, prove that I'm disabled.
Granted, I'm 5 feet nothin', 112 pounds and sit in an electric wheelchair, but apparently that's just anecdotal evidence… We need science!
The Good Doctor
Every couple months I have to send my physician a form and ask him to fill it out. He has to state that I have spinal muscular atrophy, identify the diagnosis date, explained that my prognosis is something akin to "ain't getting better any time soon" and sign it.
With new Medicare regulations, the good doctor is not allowed to sign the said form without seeing me "face-to-face" to prevent fraud. Although I'm extraordinarily healthy, hospitalized last in 1996 for something unrelated to my dis…

Friday Funnies: Aging Gracefully

I pointed to two old drunks sitting across the bar from us and told my friend, "That's us in 10 years".

He said "That's a mirror, dip-shit!"
