Bad Ideas in Currency

A few weeks ago I had a long phone meeting for $275. It was for a market research company, who wanted my opinion on migraine treatments.

So today I received payment from them, with this awesome check;





I was worried the bank teller would hit me over the head 275 times with a hammer. Fortunately, they just credited the money to my account, although the guy began giggling.

That sounds like a pretty good name for a band.

I just got called to do a 200$ survey for an antibiotic. I wonder if the check will say "200 gram negative rods"?

Sounds like a good title for the next Jennifer Aniston flick...

Never had one (migraine) - knock on wood - or, if you suffer from them, perhaps my head ;)

Although now that I'm getting older, I have those pre-menopausal headaches (never used to have headaches at all) maybe it's the hormones - or perhaps it could be those checks I have to write to my kids' colleges. ;)

Coincidence . . . ? or just bad timing.

Did you want that with or without aura?

At least you're not an infectious disease specialist that concentrates on venereal diseases:

two hundred seventy five
SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES
or
HIV VACCINES

You could also be a gynecologist:

two hundred seventy five
VAGINAL LESIONS
or
...

Actually, that last one grossed myself out, so I'll stop now. Just know, that it could have been much, much worse.

Oh, GODS, no. One is more than enough.

Now... I took that as I could get paid $275 for *having* migraines... that might make the pain a little easier to bear...

Thank God you weren't asked to do a market study on enemas!

A Peach - are you kidding? Neither my daughter or I would feel compensated by that! I do think whoever invented Imigraine and all the other new-ish migraine treatments deserves either the Congressional Gold Medal of Honour, or is knighted - I don't know if if was a UK or British pharmacist that came up with them, but I would kiss his/her feet!

Fiz said...

That was meant to read US or British - sorry!
