Was trading stories from our youth with a buddy of mine the other day, and this one made us both chuckle.
My first job out of college was managing a car rental agency. The hours were long, but money was decent, plus I had my pick of any car in the fleet for my personal use.
However, it was a high-stress and highly frenetic job. We had the largest fleet in the district, and days could get pretty crazy. As a result, I was usually a bit desperate to make sure everything got done, but would occasionally forget who was supposed to have done what.
So on a typical day as I ran back into the building, I saw my assistant (and to this day, one of my dearest friends) Robert, going over a rental agreement with an elderly couple.
Lost among current concerns over the White House’s foreign policy “successes” is an issue much closer to home: the Affordable Care Act and its deleterious effect on our healthcare system, our economy and our nation’s psyche.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m not seeing the term “Obamacare” used as much as I once did. Of course, that’s likely due to journalists’ desire to shield Obamacare’s namesake from news like this, from Investors Business Daily:
“…Forty-six percent of Americans now describe health costs as a “hardship,” up from 36% in 2013…”
A “hardship”, you say? Almost HALF of the country?
Frankly, we didn’t intend that the first post after our lengthy hiatus would be a humorous one. But last week’s Brian Williams kerfuffle inspired a good friend of ours, and these are simply too good not to share.
