AHey honey, how was your day?
BIt was alright. I ran into Bill and we got to talking for a while. He’s in a bit of a jam.
AWhy? What happened?
BWell, his son had an accident and Bill doesn’t have health insurance. This really got me thinking, and I wondered if we shouldn’t look into a couple of different HMO’s.
AYeah, you’re right. We aren’t getting any younger and our kids are getting older.
BExactly! I searched on the web and found a couple of HMO’s with low co-pays and good coverage. The deductibles are low, too.
ASounds good, although, do you think we can qualify for insurance? Those insurance companies are real pirates when it comes to money.
BWell, we don’t have any pre-existing illnesses or conditions, so we should be fine.
AI wish our company or country provided us with healthcare.
BNot in a million years!
AMan, they take a lot of our paycheck.
BYeah, the government really takes a bit, doesn't it?
ASeriously. The only tax I don't mind them taking is social security. It's only a few dollars every paycheck.
BYeah, I don't mind it either. We’ll both end up rich slobs and not need it, but what if we do, you know?
AYeah. It won't be much, but at least we’ll have a monthly check when we get old.
BYeah, my grandmother gets by on social security and the money my grandfather invested when he was alive.
ALet's just hope the politicians don't figure out a way to spend it.
BReally? No, they couldn't. None of them would have jobs if they did.
AWe agree to give you a break on the price, all together a discount of 6%. Good news is, I talked to my boss, he confirmed that if you take care of the shipping costs, we'll throw in insurance.
BGreat! I'd love to get a little better discount than 6%, but if your company provides the insurance, that will save us a few bucks...
ANow, all this is available to you, as far as you make payment within a 30 day grace period. That shouldn't be a problem, right?
BNo... We shouldn't have any problem with that. I know we talked about a possiblity for 90 days, but we won't be needing that after your discounted price.
ASo, if all this is agreeable to you, I'll put it all down on paper and fax a contract to you this afternoon. If you can get a signed version of the contract we've agreed upon back to me by tomorrrow morning, we can go ahead and make arrangements to ship the product on Tuesday.
