Two patients limp into two different medical clinics
with the same complaint.

Both have trouble walking
and appear to require a hip replacement.

The first patient is examined within the hour, is
x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for
surgery the following week.
The second sees his family doctor after waiting a
week for an appointment, then waits eight weeks to see a
specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed
for another week, and finally has his surgery
scheduled for six weeks from then.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The first is a yellow Labrador.
The second is a Senior Citizen

Not a happy situation, is it.
I face it on a regular basis.

Such is life? Storm the insurance groups? Pay up whether you can or not?

Life... it is such treachery. And still we find some joys. We cling to those little things which surmount the indignities.
