I saw two new K-mart commercials that I can't stand! One talks about "I shipped my pants" and the other is about "big gas." I think their play on words is terrible. Makes me not want to shop there.

They went out of business here...no shopping at K-mart. They had their employees park next to the doors so folks would know the store was open.

Sears bought out Kmart, and we still have Kmarts around here. Stupid commercials.

I'm laughing with love, promise!!! I'm going to have to use that one.

I'm sorry you have aches and pains, I gotta figure out what I did to my shoulder...

Heh. Just went home around 11:30 a.m. to get and put on my back brace, got a call from the supervisor that she was on her way to meet me at one of my schools. So back I went. Nice 5 minute lunch.

Well, let's see...ready for a rant about the hospital where I had my knee surgery? You're going to get one anyway.

I'm still trying to get the hospital bill straightened out from my knee surgery in early November. Yes, over 6 months ago. Soon 7 months.

I've talked to so many people at the hospital, my head is about to explode and I now have a folder that is nearly an inch thick that contains the bill (incorrect), communications with the insurance company and pages and pages and pages of my detailed notes with the hospital personnel.

On April 16 I talked with a person who was supposed to "take care of" the mess. She assured me that she'd be right on top of it and communicate with the insurance company so everyone would be comparing apples to apples. Yeah, right!! I heard the words, hoped some of what she said would bear fruit, but.......

So, since it's been about 6 weeks, I thought that would be ample time to rectify things or at least have a good start at it, I called my insurance company this morning. They have heard nothing from the hospital. Nothing since some time in February. Nada, nothing, zero, zip, big goose egg!!!!!

I'm so angry I can't see straight. Real helpful hospital!!! NOT!! But when it comes to them wanting their money, they'll call you a few days after sending their bill (by the way, 5 months after the date of service) so they can set you up on a payment plan. I'm ready to hit people and break things.

I'm sick to death of this crap and, by Monday, I will have a plan.

You have an itemized bill from the hospital? This is beyond ridiculous for you. Sorry you are going through this Katie, hopefully your insurance company will stand up for you.

You have my deepest sympathies Katie. A few years back I went through insurance hell trying to straighten out an emergency visit bill for my...knee. What IS it with that body part? Anyway, the issue was with terminology in my case. The Emergency Room was not called that because the clinic was at a national park on federal ground. They call things differently in the gubmint. Since the right name wasn't used the insurance company didn't want to pay. I ended up getting things cleared up and paid but it took me months and months and all kinds of "proof" including Google topo maps showing that where I was would have taken almost 3 hours to get to what they considered a hospital ER. As it was it took an hour to get to the NP clinic. But my case DID get paid by insurance. I'm sure if you beat on the right people it will work out for you too. Good luck and keep us updated.

Hang in there Katie. You are much stronger than the hospital people who don't know their job and don't know the meaning of "follow through."
