I know there are a lot of problems with the healthcare/insurance machine, but the one that drives me insane are X-Rays. It's fine that they take them, it's when they screw up while taking them that I hate. You stand there outfitted like you're going into Chernobyl while the technician huddles in a lead-lined room, then they blast you, look at the X-Rays and say, "Sorry, that one didn't turn out." Then they take another and send you back to the waiting room. Forget for a moment that my body's been wholesale blasted with radiation, it's the bill they send later that kills me. They charge you for all the X-rays they screwed up! Hey pal, it's not my problem things didn't work out. This one should go on the hospital's tab.
