    It's the middle of the night, and your entire family might have a cold (mom, dad, and two kids).

    QUICK! CALL 9-1-1 ! FOUR AMBULANCES respond to their home. Two leave and two take the family into the ER. Dad has a legit flu or bad cold, everyone else is fine. *siiiiiiiiiiiiigh*

    Part 1:

    Our neighbor owns a drugstore. A mother, three little kids who are much too sick to be in school but not too indisposed to run errands, present their medical assistance card for a Rx for one of the kids. She finds out there is a $2.00 copay. After mumbling unprintables under her breath, they leave without the Rx.

    Part 2:

    She goes to her class which the hardhearted state says she must enroll in if she can't find a job. Guess who is teaching her class?!

    The kds sit in the back of the room and play. Their mom's mean heartless old prof reports the situation to the nurse, who takes it from there.

    Part 3:

    They head to the ER and cough and sniffle for them. They leave with cough syrup samples, a Rx, and a food voucher for a local charity. On the way out, Mom remarks that if you know what to do, you'll never pay a thing.

    The Mom bragged about it loudly in the next class. My husband came home and asked me, "Isn't there something we can do?"
