Deductibles and refunds-limerick rant

In response to Esther’s Challenge to write about our favorite rant. A pet peeve?

Let’s try a limerick

Deductibles and refunds

In January you must meet your deductible
So that the doctor or test is accessible
For each visit you pay
Without any delay
And refunded when THEY deem acceptable

~Ruth Scribbles~

NOTE: Here in the USA we have to buy health insurance. Sometimes the monthly payment determines the deductible. But once the deductible is met, you pretty much pay a standard fee for office visits etc.

Just yesterday I went to pick up medical equipment. [I had waited until I had met my deductible (or so I thought-I had paperwork from my doctor to verify that fact).] I was informed that the insurance company showed I still needed to pay xyz. I asked about the paperwork I had in hand to verify said payments, she said she couldn’t use that. I asked about a refund. She said that timing may mean that I won’t get my money back until sometime in March!! Wow!

Terrible Poetry Contest-#11-Diamond in the Rough

Diamond in the rough

Rough diamond

Cracking windows is tough

I need a diamond

One with rough edges

Edges to scratch glass

Glass walls that keep me out

Out and not in

In with the gang

Gang of a thousand

Thousands of diamonds that sparkle

Sparkle and shine illuminating

My world with possibilities

Life is rough,

I mean tough

Auto correct funny (Week04-2019 52Frames_Macro)

I uploaded my 4th photo today. I was evidently rushing (although I had nowhere to go) and forgot to proof read my comment.

Title: Whiskers

My comment unedited is/was: I was trying to get a closer of Louisa’s eye and then whiskers happened!! The dof was freak and whiskers visible… thus my iPhone 7plus wins again.

Is that where slang comes from? I kinda like that the word “freak” replaced “great.” And of course closer was supposed to be closeup, and that does mean to get closer. Sigh… 🤦‍♀️

Oh here’s the photo I submitted. 😉
