Sorry for my Medicate assumption because of your age.

I haven’t been around here much either and perhaps should not have looked in today.
No FCL, don't disappear!! I NEED YOU TO STAY!!

Good Morning,

So Gayle, is there a resource issue that is forcing the RS ladies to stop helping you? I so wish I could help out. (And I got your package. That was not necessary, but I appreciate it.)

As soon as I am finished here I am going to venture out to get coffee and breakfast.

Have a great day,
Maggie
Apparently there others now who needs meals and “other help” which wasn't specified to me. I think RS Pres doesnt like disruptions in her preplanned schedules; that it makes her fall apart but she can't seem to explain any of that in a normal manner so she gets stiff & rude.

As for the package, no not necessary but I felt like you could use a cheery bit, and the top one of the stack is definitely cheerful.😉

Nope, we were not on Medicare
Medicare isn't welfare at all, and it's for everyone who worked and paid taxes into it. It's for everyone 65 and over (or disabled), no matter what your income, or if you're still working. You can have an income of over $500k/yr and still get Medicare, you'd just pay higher premiums.

Most people over 65 have Medicare, so nobody is being insulting or judgemental by assuming you have it.

Medicare is much more affordable than employer or private health insurance, which is why most people opt for it, since they've already paid for the bulk of it through employment taxes.

Again, there is no judgment in assuming that you have Medicare.

And some private companies that provide your insurance might require you to sign up for Medicare when you turn 65. Part A is "free". But if you want Part B (hope I am getting this right), you better sign up by 65. There is a ten percent penalty for every year you do not sign up after 65.

This is true. Clement. I have a sister who works and will here as she turns 65. Shes been getting piles of mail and making her choices.

I do think that there was nothing wrong with FC belief that medicare was involved. I would have assumed the same thing.

Absolutely there was nothing wrong in FCL making a totally innocent assumption ! I can't stand passive aggressive people who seek offence where NONE is meant.
