Hospital Sale

October 27th, 2007

I went in to the local city hospital today to get an MRI scan ($51) and saw something weird. As I was leaving (via the Emergency Room exit, not many people there), along the hallway there was somebody selling fur coats. Not hawking them on the sly; rather, he was set up with three or four coat racks, along with a desk lined up along the side of the corridor.

I did not stop to ask, but really had to wonder: what the hell? Selling fur coats in a hospital emergency room corridor?? And, of course, the thought comes to mind: where do they get the coats from? But you really don’t want to go there….

    What do you think paid for your “$51” mri?

    Strange! I’ve been in hospitals having cake sales to support their volunteers and auxiliaries, but a fur coat sale is new to me.

    I think the fur is helping to pay for the mri machine.
