So my mom recently went to an accupuncturist (I may have spelled that wrong) because she's disabled and is in a fair amount of pain most of the time. So she decided to get accupuncture to see if it would help her feel better. Now, since my mom became disabled (probably about 4 or 5 years ago), she's gained a bit of weight because obviously she can't really move around anymore. She's not obese by any means, but she is overweight. She's 5'9" and probably around 180-200lbs, which I'd say isn't that bad for a 50-year-old woman. If she was active, she certainly wouldn't be stick-thin, but she would be at a normal weight.

So anyways, she goes to this accupuncturist, and they have an initial consultation, my mom explains some of her problems and they discuss pricing. It's $40 a session and my mom wants to go 3 times a week, so she'll be looking at $120 a week. She thinks about this for a bit, because she's not sure she wants to spend that much money. But then she decides that if it can help her feel better, it will be worth it.

So she's laying on the table waiting for the accupuncturist to do her thing, and the lady says "You know, I was thinking to myself - if you spent less money on food then you'd have more than enough to pay me."

What a bitch!
