they are already on thin ice after sending my daughter home because she had something in her eye. the dumbfuck "health aide" who is probably some mom with too much time on her hands, made the determination that it was medically necessary to see a doctor and get a form signed before they would allow her back to school, which caused her to miss her favorite part of the week, drum class after school. that day involved me spending 2 hours waiting to see the doc and ~$150 in costs. there was no discharge or anything else to cause any worry. i am thinking about sending them the bill and telling them next time to have the nurse or someone who is fucking trained handle it.

Can a school force you to take your child to a doctor?
I keep reading all these articles about the cost of obesity, not just to the overall insurance, but to other industries as well.
It just reminds me of when I worked for an ambulance company. We bought a USED bariatric truck with a bariatric stretcher for around $250K. The stretcher was made to hold the 300+ lb patients. Unfortunately, it was constantly being taken out of service because morbidly obese pts would break it. A lot of resources and money was being spent on fixing it. Not to mention all the money spent on workers' comp claims.Medicine is struggling to make accommodations. Doctors often check blood pressure using cuffs meant for thighs, Razavi said. Surgical tools have to be enlarged in order to reach through layers of fat. Obese patients require higher doses of radiation during imaging tests like CT scans. “And that means if I’m doing the procedure, I am getting higher doses of radiation, too,” Razavi pointed out.
Some patients won’t fit into MRI scanners. Surgical tables have been redesigned to handle patients weighing up to 450 pounds. Needles for injections have made been longer so they can penetrate fat layers and reach muscles. Even lab tests results have to be interpreted differently.
she can't attend school until she gets the random hair out of her eye? pretty stupid.
then again, you're in newport aren't you? the land of cunty moms with no jobs, just vaginaplasty and a starbucks card because they like the design. OC is well known for uptight assholes who get up in your shit...really unfortunate for such a beautiful area
i was pretty shocked when they said it was the health aide who made the determination, that the nurse was not in that day. one of the office staff at the school is pretty cunty(and i only reserve that word for the worst of the worst, which she is), so decided not to make too many waves since we have about 8 years to go at the school.

yes, especially newport beach if you're close to the crystal cove area, every other car is a tiny woman in an escalade with a gucci purse and an iphone (newest gen of course) with a vajazzaled vagina/phone case (although i fucking gina's pizza still)
I used to get fat and stoned when I worked at the North Laguna one....I do miss living in El Morro...

I just nearly died watching Carter Pewterschmidt destroy a bench with a backhoe because Peter thought it was alright. It was like I was watching it for the first time again.
So I woke up to the sound of my smoke detector informing me that something was burning.
It was the small pizza in my oven. I DON'T remember putting the pizza in there.
I VAGUELY remember pre-heating the oven.
I DON'T remember passing out or even laying on my bed.
I can't even say how long the pizza has been in there. I wanna say between 1 and 3 hours? I think i turned on the oven around that time... I'm assuming the smoke detector didn't inform me sooner because the AC was probably running and blowing in the detectors way.
In all my years of drinking, this is only the 2nd time this has happened.
DONT DRINK AND PRE-HEAT OVENS, PEOPLE.
*Thankful to not have a apartment burning down right now*
(and if you were wondering, the pizza is extra black and crispy now, of course).
/cool story bro

hahahaha! Nice. Combination/Supreme?
Yes, combination. People say that it's horrible pizza, but those Totinos things are soo good!
I don't get them anymore, but if I had one I would eat it. I do Red Baron or (I forget the other brand) on occasion.
My moms ex-husband did this with a hotdog and egg. Half the egg was black. HA!
Ha. I came home to an apartment kitchen full of smoke with a drunk boyfriend passed out in my bed with a beer spilled all over him and the bed and blackened buffalo wings in the oven once.

There was just a huge spider on my ceiling and I just spent, no lie, 20 minutes trying to get it to go onto the wall so I could stick it in a container and take it outside. It was probably one of the scariest things I've ever done in my life (because I'm terrified of spiders) and I'm still shaking. Normally I would of just poison sprayed the shit out of it but I felt like it needed to live. Holy shit. I'm proud of myself.
Bought flowers for my mom online last night from 1800flowers.com and there were just delivered. Thank you internet!
Fuck you, that place and your good experience with them. Mine still haven't arrived from two years ago. Though I've since gotten a refund so I don't expect them to arrive. But I called a week in advance, fuckers. No I can't forgive them and will carry this hate with me to my grave.
