Don't f*ck with me, BlueCross/BlueShield.
I know I've had a bit of a hard time recently, but do you remember last year when I fell off a skateboard and got bitten by a rabid dog all in the same week? Well apparently, that week has something to do with me getting an insurance bill for the rabies shots that was almost $2100. To get to the bottom of this, I called my health insurance company, and you'll never believe what they told me. As I went through the itemised charges for the immunisations I had so painfully received back in October, the nice lady told me that there were some additional charges that were overdue, something to do with a spine injury. At that point, I remembered that I had been bitten and fell off the skateboard at practically the same time, and as I was describing this to her, she told me "ah yes, it says here that this has been deemed a pre existing contrition." Really? Are you kidding me? Oh yes, I told her, you're right! I had forgotten that I got rabies years ago and had been carrying it all this time. I also realised, stupidly, that falling directly onto my coccyx off a skateboard onto a solid concrete floor while going roughly 100mph did nothing to my back. It was clearly a random, excruciating pain I'd just been living with!! Talking about living with, I did point out the irony of living with the rabies all these years when EVERYBODY WHO GETS RABIES DIES!!! Don't f*ck with me Blue Cross Blue Shield. I may still be in the throws of my anxiety, but I'm not taking this crap any more. Don't even get me started on the fact that I still haven't got my car out of the shop yet...
