"Dear Wounded" Song From 2010

Today I'd like to share a song I wrote in 2010. I was collaborating with a band named Smashcan at the time, and they were sincerely cons...

Salesman Wigs, Uber Laughs

You know you've had a great day when you share a laugh with your Uber driver as he drops you off at your destination. The reason? Well, the Uber driver could overhear the insurance salesman as he snapped on me and hung up on me because I wasn't giving him my "full attention." Can I say WTF? Nope. Only, if I mean what the fudge. 

That was hilarious. The health insurance people have been calling me. Yeah, of course, I've been looking into coverage, but it does me no good because all the plans are screwed. Believe me; if there was a plan that was within my price range, I would have it. I'm a numbers girl. I've already tried running the numbers six ways to Sunday. You're either screwed on the premium, or you're screwed on the deductible, but ma'am, you... are... screwed.

Grammarly's gonna tell me I used several unnecessary ellipses now. 

I don't like insurance salespeople much, to be honest. A lot of them don't care who they sign up, just as long as they sign somebody up. They do all kinds of shady stuff to earn their pay and don't really care about the people. It's all the same: life insurance, auto insurance, health insurance, whatever. 

The man got mad at me because I don't beat around the bush or play games. I want cheap coverage. I'm low income but apparently not low enough for Medicaid. My budget is ___, so you're wasting my time and yours if you can't get me this premium with this deductible: $0-$50. Yes, I already played around with different numbers. That's how I am. I'm sorry if you feel as though I'm trying to take over your job, but I like running numbers myself and trying to get myself the best deal. There are times when I want someone else to do it, and times when I don't. Today just wasn't a good day for sitting there and listening to a licensed agent tell me that they couldn't find me the pricing that I need either. 

So basically, he clicked me because he demanded my full attention, but I had to tell the Uber driver where to stop. I saw him out the corner of my eye with his arms up like hellooooo, so I had to answer him. So the bratty little salesman hung up. Yeah, we laughed at that crap. Dude was silly, lol. 

Now, I am getting ready to take the longest sleep ever. I have some swelling and whatnot. I have that pitting edema that is usually a sign of major organ failures and such. 

My breathing is okay right now although I do have some chest pain on the right side. I'm tired. It was a long day for me today, and I got upset today because it seemed like all this stuff was working against me this morning. OMG. Come on. 

Now I can't keep my eyes open anymore. I'm just so tired, and I mean that in an "I'm just physically sleepy from not getting much sleep yesterday" kind of way. I was having an 80s "Guiding Light" episode marathon.
