I asked the woman at the front desk to set up a payment plan for the bill because, hey, I'm poor (as most disabled people are). I've set up plans with them before, have always paid my bill; so I didn't think it was an issue and the woman at the front desk said 'Ok, I just got to go get the vets signature on this', within 2 mins, this other woman (not the vet or receptionist) came stomping over to me and was like 'We don't do payment plans- what made you think we did" and I reminded her they'd done one the last couple time. Her response to me was 'If you knew you couldn't afford to pay, why did you even come here!'. My reply being 'Because I was under the impression you still did payment plans and I thought my service dog was going to drop dead on me'. Instead of being a major bitch to me, she could have simply been polite and said 'we don't offer payment plans, lets do ___' and offered a suggestion, but like everyone else it seems, she felt compelled to teach me a lesson. Trying to teach someone a lesson on what they're doing wrong in there life and trying to prove yourself superior doesn't make you look good, it makes you look like a self righteous asshole.
I get harassed more and more by people because they view me as lazy and they feel like I have to validate to them my use of assistance, or enjoying my life, or dressing decently when I go in public (If I dressed in rags I would be told I wasn't putting forth an effort, but if I wear makeup and a good looking shirt, obviously I'm a welfare queen). I think it's time everyone settle the fuck down and stop judging everyone else- you don't know why someone is on assistance and just because you may have met a welfare queen (I haven't heard of one actual welfare queen that actually existed, I'm convinced they're just has rare as unicorns...or maybe unicorns are welfare queens)
What was even more ironic about the woman that yelled at me is the little crucifix earrings she was wearing while she yelled at me for being too poor to pay.
