My chinese coworker upon returning from the pharmacy:
CCW: “They raise our copay again. It was $48 , now it’s $56”
SSFB: “They’ll never stop”
CCW: “so they raise our copay and the insurance costs more too?”
SSFB: “But what can you do?”
CCW: “You’re right. We are just the meat on the chalkboard”
So looking back I assume he meant CHOP-board… but he definately said chalkboard.
