Stands to Reason

Do you know that when you are wearing a fake-fur coat, livery-cab drivers will quote you a price that is twice as high as when you aren't wearing the coat? Stands to reason.

Which reminds me, did I ever tell you that whenever I've called doctors to ask the cost of the same medical procedures as friends with famous/rich names to see if they were getting overcharged (it's a fun party game if you feel like trying it), the famous-named people were quoted roughly twice as much as I was? Cynically stands to reason. I'm not trying to say that this is the Injustice of all Injustices -- just sharing it with you. And calling those doctors and running the transcripts would have been a good Jane magazine Prank back in the day, huh?

On a related note, tell me something about yourself!
