Thinking Twice

September 19th, 2006 at 01:50 pm

You guys are starting to make a difference in the way I think. I went back to the pharmacy (for the third time poor people) to get the remainder of a prescription that they filled for my husband last week. They didn't have enough pills the last time, so he paid the co-pay and we both have tried to get the remaining pills. Seems the insurance company had a screw-up on their end and wouldn't quit charging us another co-pay for the remainder of the pills. Since he had only gotten two pills the first time, another co-pay would have made it a bit expensive, but he needed them, so I didn't really care after the second try. However, the pharmacy waived the co-pay and ate the cost. I appreciated that. But what made me think twice was while I was going through the store, I saw a book that I thought I wanted. I LOVE books. I usually go to the library sales and now I'm once again checking books out of the library to save costs. But I thought about it. It wasn't much, but...Two weeks ago, I probably would have bought it. Now, I'm thinking of how I can put that money on my debt. Since I allow a budgeted amount per day and anything not spent is put immediately on debt, I have motivation every day. I put it back and walked away. Left the store with a loaf of bread, free (sorta) pills and a smile. Thank you!

    Umm...the pharmacy didn't eat it, they did what they are required by law to do when they can't fully fill a prescription that you pay your co-pay for. They owed you those pills free of charge and shouldn't have even tried to run them through the insurance a second time.
