    I told my manager that I was going to put my two weeks at the ends of December because the way they treated my co-works and i. It's a long story but now this month its just push sales and it doesn't matter if you have to be dishonest with people. Because of that I can't work at this place.

    That's a lousy insurance plan. Ours covers everything for a grand total of first doctor visit copay of $25. Everything after that till childbirth is free.
    Yeah, our plans have gone to crap over the last couple of years.... 2 years ago, it would have been an office visit copay... but last year all the plans went for the worse with prices going up, and this year the plans all went up another 20%-30%... depending on the plan. Before you hit your deductible, I think it is $1,400... 1,900... $2,400 for child birth.... and that was the $500 ind. ($1,000 family)... $1,000 Ind. ($2,000 family) and $1,500 ind. ($3,000 family) deductible plans.... The plans cover some "basic" care, but anything else, you have to pay 100% until you hit your deductible.

    We went with the $3,000 deductible plan because it not only has cheaper premiums per pay check, but the company will pitch in $1,000 on a "health" credit card.... Also, if you take the difference in premiums on any of the other plans and put it, pre-taxed, on the health credit card, and add in the 1K from the company, it covers the deductible for the year... so, in the long run it's cheaper. Plus, it has a lower Max Out Of Pocket amount than the mid tier and the same Max OOP amount as the low deductible.... Only, again, given the difference in premiums and $ put in by company, you are half way there.

    We got vaccinated yesterday, didn't hurt a bit. But now there's a slight pain in the shoulder when a raise my arm. It's not that special, doesn't really hurt a lot, but it's one of those small aches that are real PITA.

    The lady working there, in the hospital (oh it was free, it was a mandatory thing for all high school 4th graders), was a bit unprofessional, maybe. She didn't allow me to put my shirt back on, as she "has no time to waste". So both friend and I went back to the waiting room without our shirts on. It wasn't a big deal or anything, she just pissed me off a bit.

    There's some guy, and I intend to find out who he is, who keeps playing stupid, mainstream, pop, bull**** songs during breaks in the school. Now, I rarely listen to pop, but there are 2-3 songs that I like in the genre, and there are some that I'm neutral about, but the ones he's playing, well, they're just pure cancer. Stuff like Work, or that Bonbon crap.

    No. Just the US.

    Most taxes and medical stuff is pretty easy elsewhere. I can't say everywhere because I've not lived everywhere.

    Every place has its own unique quirks of course.

    Well, I don't know much about our taxes, but I know some stuff about our medical care. First, it's free, that is it's paid by the company you work at, and all your children can be "registered" under your plan. If you're not employed, then the government pays for it.

    I have to note that only things that are covered by our medical care are services you get in public hospitals (private hospitals aren't really a thing here, there are very few and used mostly by really rich folks and sportist), and covers small amount of crucial meds. Anything other, well, you have to pay for it yourself.

    The story of why I am,quitting.
    Back story: My old manager who was running the store" phill " left around the ends of September back to Redding ( he lives in Redding and was commuting every day to work here and left because he would be making more money if he stepped down as manager ) Scott was chosen to be manager here in Chico over Jen ( Scott was lead tech here in Chico before being catapulted to be manager ) so Jennifer moved to Oroville ( she moved to be closer to Brian. Keep in mind she is married to another guy. Brian got fired because he and Jennifer were in a blind stop where the cameras can't see. They were in a room together for about 30 min. You all,can make up your conclusions) to be manger there. I was lead tech for the month of October. Dillon walked out of the job. So in total there was only three workers . Me, mat , and Mary. Mat got a total of 140 hours and I got a total of 120hours for the month of October * keep all of this in mind

    Names have been changed

    Interesting so far. Lots of people left. A work romance and you worked 40 less hours than I do a month. You were given extra responsibility.

    Can't wait to see where this is going.

    Lots of places are going to what they call a two tier system.

    Free public and paid private.

    In Canada, Australia and here in the UK there's a mix of both. Typically to use private you need insurance unless you're rich. But even then they probably have insurance because in some countries it's a tax deduction.

    There's usually less waiting times when accessing private because less people use it.

    I'm more inclined to the idea of universal heath care because I grew up with it and I believe it makes sense. Unfortunately in a world now run by accountants these things are becoming endangered.
