Ms. Daughter: "Hi, my Dad has Parkinson's disease, and I was wondering if you had any birthday gift ideas specifically for Parkinson's patients?"
Annie: "Hmm. Well, there's a really good physical therapy program for them over at Local Rehab."
Ms. Daughter: "No, I'd have to drive him to that, and don't have the time. He already has a cane, otherwise I'd get him one. Can you write a script under my name for his meds? That way I can have my insurance pay for them, and save him money?"
Annie: "No, we really can't do that. What about just a regular gift? Like baseball tickets, or a book?"
Ms. Daughter: "No... He likes movies. Do you know of any movies that are out now about Parkinson's disease? He's already seen 'Awakenings'."
Annie: "Why don't you take him out for a nice brunch, or dinner?"
Ms. Daughter: "You people aren't any help at all." (click)
