A lady who went through one of my personal finance classes told me of her money-saving idea (and I laughed )
This lady did not have dental insurance, but went to the dentist for her semi-annual cleaning. This is a good thing!!!
Anyway, during the examination of her teeth, it was discovered that one of the teeth had cracked badly. As a result, a crown was needed for that tooth.
The dentist, unaware of who he was up against, informed her that a crown costs $650.
Her reply? "No. $275!"
The SHOCKED dentist said, "$325."
THAT'S FUNNY!!! Too many of us believe that a SERVICE provided by doctors, hospitals, lawyers, and other professionals is NON-negotiable. WRONG!
You can pay full price and remain B-R-O-K-E OR you can negotiate. Yes, it might be a little uncomfortable, but I'm not broke anymore!
