“Hold on, which sort of diabetic are you? It’s very important to determining whether or not you’re going to go into crushing medical debt that you can never escape from! Hold on, we’ve got another patient.

What’s that? You had a workplace accident and lost your finger? Well, that’s on you, buddy. Yeah— shouldn’t have worked for a place that was violating OSHA. So you’re fully responsible for that one. Personal accountability and whatnot. Anyway, sue them and see how it goes, only way you’ll get paid. Oh, mandatory arbitration clause? With a judge of their choice? Oof. Real tough. Anyway, here’s the bill you will be 100% responsible for.”
