A "lady" and her adult son come in for their medications. They're both on state funded Medicaid but one of his medications (Phentermine) is not covered and he always pays cash. He's paying for his medication with a credit card (not a debit card) and his mom quickly tells him to get some cash back. I'm used to seeing that-- people want a little extra money for their wallet or whatever... but he says "No, mom, we don't need no money." His voice makes an odd whistle through his missing teeth as he speaks.
Oddly enough (sense some sarcasm here), he doesn't appear to need Phentermine. But mom definitely could use some sort of weight loss help. She's sporting a hefty BMI. But I digress...
She gets more insistent. "Get $100 back! I want to go to the casino!"
My, what a marvelous example to her son. Not only is she suggesting they go blow some money at the casino, she wants him to "charge it" which will cost them 24.5% in interest in the long run. How is it that they have money to spend at the casino anyway when their on Medicaid? Oh, I forget, Obama fixed healthcare!
Skinny son tells his mom, "We ain't going to no casino, I done told you that already."
Mom rolls her eyes. She looks in the bag of medications. "Is my meh-toe-pro-laul in here?"
"Yes," I reply. "Have a nice day."
"It ain't gunna be a nice day! My son is dis-abey'in his own momma!"
