Took away some pain, what will take away the rest?
“I will receive my check in a week but I already spent it on my toothache turned root canal. Because of No Child Left Behind my career as a Social Studies teacher is almost obsolete (I guess nobody cares about learning history) so I cannot find a job and get dental insurance. Root canal = $640 and crown = $1000. Goodbye $600. Let’s do this again so I can go back to school since I have to give up my dream profession.”
