Weekly Roundup – Adding Injury to Insult Edition

Last week I wrote about how our local Urgent Care sent us to collections for a medical bill that wasn’t actually overdue. And then Friday night I slipped while helping set up some stuff for a school function and sliced my knee open on a metal grate. Thus, I ended up having to go back to the very same Urgent Care facility for stitches. The good news is that I walked in just before they closed and the waiting room was totally empty. Amazingly enough, I was in an out in about 20 minutes! And I really haven’t experienced too much discomfort.

What follows is a list of articles that caught my eye over the past week…
