Obamacare sign-up incentives….

Some of you know I’m hearing impaired. That’s why blogging is such a good outlet for me. But I still always felt like it was a handicap. Until now. Then this happened. (Read first)

I’m trying to picture just how a conversation might have gone before the California Obamacare exchange realized their mistake. Maybe like this…..

Exchange: “We see you’ve declared you are hearing impaired. Please call 1-888-899-4500, for further instructions.” (Caller dials number)

Caller: “Hello?”

Exchange: “Hi, big boy, call here often?”

Caller: “What?”

Exchange: “C’mon, stud muffin, let’s not play games.”

Caller: “I don’t understand you.”

Exchange: “Well maybe you’ll understand this….” (moans and groans)

Caller: “Are you sick?”

Exchange: “I can be. What did you have in mind?”

Caller: “I’ll need health coverage.”

Exchange: “You’re more likely to need disability coverage when I’m done.”

Caller: “And I want a flexible plan.”

Exchange: “You’re in luck, Tiger. Most guys tell me flexibility is my strong suit.”

Caller: “How much will this cost?”

Exchange: “You’ll get what you pay for. Just like downtown.”

Caller: “Is it true that there are “death panels”?

Exchange: “Oh, you must be referring to our Tuesday 3 on 1 special.”

Caller: “This is a little embarrassing, but does your service plan help with Erectile Dysfunction?”

Exchange: “Does the Pope wear a funny hat?”

Caller: “I understand your service plan includes a government subsidy, right?”

Exchange: “Actually, I think you’re going to get screwed on that too.”

Caller: “OK, thanks. I’m going to tell my wife about how good you were to me.”

Exchange. “Ahh…..kinky. I like that.”

    Guess they really want to reach their signup goals. There are worse ideas.

      Wasn’t sure how much Britain was following this fiasco. Glad you could share in the humor of it. No doubt Peter will be vintage Peter.

      • Jane Thorne says:

        Definately vintage Peter…and yes, it is a fiasco on your side of the pond. We have our own here and I amazed myself the other day by saying to my Mum and Dad that government is here to control us, not to represent us with care…I remain a rebel I feel…X

    Wickedly funny… 🙂 x

Your turn to write, but please don't be wittier than me. My ego is quite fragile.
