So I went and took a step into financially potentially dangerous territory.
You know how you, at least over here, have a set amount of money you have to pay towards your hospital bill before your insurance company takes over? There’s also a voluntary amount that, when raised higher, lowers the amount of money you have to pay on insurance monthly. Guess what I did? I maxed it.
Yeah yeah, I rarely get sick, let alone hospitalized or anything, but it still feels weird. If something were to happen to me now chances are I’ll have to pay all of it myself. And that’s not something easily done, considering how expensive everything is these days.
On the other hand, I now pay a considerably smaller monthly fee. I’ll be saving the money I, uhm, save, and keep it at hand shall I ever end up horribly wounded because of some weird accident involving raccoons and your mom. And, of course, if the hoard gets out of proportions I can always attempt to keep it down by going on a nice holiday to the Bahamas or something.
Who am I kidding I’ll probably spend what little I save on cheap booze to hang on my couch with, crying about the misery that is my pathetic life.
