Hermit's Retreat

Dudes are fucking creepy, and willfully ignorant of said creepiness

i had the most disgusting experience yesterday, once again with grocery delivery. my deposited check hadn’t cleared yet, so i got a call saying i could pay for the order with another card or whatever. i asked if they could rerun the card in a few hours, and ran to the bank…

This is scary as hell.

Wonder if anyone resigned out of embarassment?

I’m going to bed now.  I swear I am.

I had my father get sick when I was 22. And I was poor, alright. And my father had an ulcer, and it exploded and you know all these toxins get in your blood. And basically, my father died, whatever, 50 days after his ulcer. So I had a father get sick while I was poor.

My mother got sick when I was rich. And my mother, you know… I don’t really want to get into it, but my mother was sicker than my father. And my mother’s alive. My mother’s fine, OK? I remember going to the hospital to see my mother and wondering, ‘Was I in the right place?’ Like, this was a hotel. Like it had a concierge, man.

People don’t… if the average person really knew the discrepancy in the health care system, there’d be riots in the streets, OK? They would burn this motherfucker down!”

Bringing this back, because some people don’t seem to understand that there is a discrepancy in the quality of care among poor, middle-class, and wealthy people, NO MATTER HOW DEBILITATING THEIR RESPECTIVE DISEASES MAY BE.
