a tiny little commentary on America

this is overall a funny “only in America” story, but I do want to highlight one quote from it:

“It was probably just a BB gun, and I need to see if anything is lodged in there. I can’t afford the ambulance fee.” I said.

    At least, there’s a fairly happy end, and this sentence:

    “There was a pair of them; there was an older gentlemen and a younger one following old and one young, like just like Jedi, or plumbers.”

    The story was great, but yes, that sentence stood out to me, as it usually does when I read of USAnians fretting about the cost of necessary healthcare procedures. That shit ain’t right.
