I should have studied harder and become a dentist. I am $315 poorer after visiting the dentist today. Due to over zealous brushing, I have a bad case of toothbrush abrasion. The dentist had to restore not one but several teeth. Compared to mum's dental treatment which runs into 5 figures, $315 is peanuts. Still, that amount of money for 15 minutes of work in a little shophouse sounds like a good job to me.
Or I should have been a vet. Rusty's recent treatment cost almost $300. Each visit to the vet would set me back by several hundred dollars and there's always a line at the vet.
At the hospital yesterday, mum's doctor was unusually busy. We waited for almost an hour and barely spent 10 minutes with him. He had another 10 patients waiting to see him in the next hour. The nurse explained that the surge was due to the fact that most doctors are going away for vacation in December.
If I am earning like the doctors, I can afford to go on a long vacation too.
