When I was growing up, there was a cartoon in the newspaper entitled,“They’ll Do It Every Time.”
The essence of the cartoon was irony.
The guy who yells at you about your driving – turns out he’s a worse driver, that sort of thing.
My new physician advises me to go to either Target or Walmart. Most of the prescriptions are $4.00.
As my income has been drastically reduced, this is a good thing!
Sunday last I go to the Walmart pharmacy. I did know that as my one med wasn’t generic, it would be more.
I wasn’t thrilled, but, I really needed the med.
Maybe one day it will be generic.
So, after my doctor’s follow-up visit this AM, it’s off to the pharmacy, again. My doc tells me the two prescriptions will be $4.00 each.
Sadly, she doesn’t work for Walmart.
After the usual mumbo-jumbo, I get the two scrips.
The generic one, because it’s a double-dose, is $8.00.
The other one, is no longer listed as generic (as they updated the formula), so it’s $12.88.
So, I get to spend $20.88, instead of the $8.00 I was expecting.
They’ll do it every time.

PS – Jimmy Hatlo also drew and authored “There Ought To Be Law”, which I’m sure upsets libertarians everywhere.
PPS – and the h/t on blog posts, comes from Ol’ Jimmy. If someone fed him the idea for a comic, he’d always write, “Thanks, and a tip of the Hatlo hat to…”
Is it ironic I just hat-tipped Jimmy Hatlo?
