Chest pain, and Eggs Benedict...rwbadley

I had once a pain in the chestal area. I figured it was heartburn. I didn't want to spend $60 to go to the Doctor for him to tell me I had heartburn.

It turns out my friend, Eggs Benedict had a pain in his chestal area in the same exact spot. I see my chance. So, I con Eggs into going to the Doctor. He goes. It turns out he has heartburn. Cost him $65, and I feel great! I figure I saved the money, I knew it was heartburn all along.

I call Eggs two days later. He died!

I run to the Doctor. I have a battery of tests run, x-rays, the whole bit. Turns out I had heartburn. Cost me $450. Now I'm furious!

I run to Eggs mother, I ask her "did he suffer much?"

"No, it was quick, car hit him and that was it..."
