Pliers and Whiskey

A while back I had a terrible toothache, the first toothache I've had in a long time. After a few days I finnnallly came to the conclusion that I needed to see a dentist. So... I made some calls to try to find one I could afford. Hah!

Dentist 1:

Me: Do you take monthly payments?
No.
How much would it cost to pull a wisdom tooth?
$150 or more depending on what we have to do. But the dentist might not be able to do it and would have to send you to an oral surgeon.
Ok, thank you.

Doctor's office:

Me: Could you give me the number for the dentist's office.
We don't have a dentist now.
Thank you.

(Great now there's no dentist who takes sliding fee in the area now. Nice.)

Dentist 2: Do you all pull wisdom teeth?
No, but we could do an x-ray and then send you to an oral surgeon. The x-ray you would need costs $85.
Do you take monthly payments?
No.
Ok, thank you.

Dentist 3:

Me: Does the dentist pull wisdom teeth?
It depends, he may have to send you to an oral surgeon.

Runaway Granny

As Mom and I were heading into our local Wal-mart a few days ago a lady riding a scooty chair came up to us. She asked Mom...
"Do you want this?" Mom replied with, "No, that's ok." The nice lady then told her to take it, she looked like she needed it and that's what the chairs were for. Mom kept saying no. The lady then appealed to me. "Tell her to take it," she exclaimed. I told her she wouldn't ride one.

"Go on take it." Mom then relented and said "OK." So she got on it, put on the gas or whatever you do to get the things going and went...backward. "Whoa!", she cried. She tried to go forward but yep went back again almost running into the one who tried to help her."WHOA WHOA!", she exclaimed again. So I did the helpful thing and stood there and giggled.

Hmmm, maybe she shouldn't ride the scooty chairs. I can see the headline now:
