There is one thing doctors reject and refuse to do more than administration and are equally as bad or worse at is that they LOATHE being told what to do and, more so, how to do it.
They won’t stand for it.
I was planning to be a worthless taking parasite sucking from my host, but now I find out I have to pay for the blood.
My Dad always said "An education is expensive, no matter how you get it."
Sort of like: “I was for gun control until there were riots in the streets. Then suddenly the 15-day waiting periods didn’t seem like such a hot idea.”
“My Dad always said “An education is expensive, no matter how you get it.”

"It's bad enough that I have to drop trou and bend over for Obama - NOW I find out that I have to pay for the Vaseline ..."
