Every minute

I had a problem with my jaw this week. I woke up Tuesday and it felt out of joint. It hurt Tuesday and Wednesday, and Thursday I was starting to wonder if there was a serious problem. So I made an appointment to go to the Chiropractor and have him pop it back in. This morning I woke up feeling great. But because I had an appointment, I figured I might as well go in.

So I went to the chiropractor with no real complaints, but feeling a sense of obligation because I'd made an appointment.

After 2 1/2 hours, I'm $270 lighter and they want me to come back Tuesday. And bear in mind the reason I went in the first place was a jaw problem that cleared itself up. So it cost me 2 1/2 hours and $270 to feel coming out exactly like I did going in.

And they want me to come back Tuesday for another $60 session. Apparently I have all sorts of spinal alignment issues.


I just called them back and canceled my follow-up without a reschedule. They say there's one born every minute, but this time his name's not going to be Ox.

You're missing one thing - what if that $270 is what people call 'an ounce of prevention'?
