Hell no it didn't go down on my hospital bill because I had an itemized bill and I was charged $9 per rubber glove every time they came in to check on me which was a lot because I had an ovary removed so I was bleeding a lot!! Imagine $9 a glove each time it was over $2K for gloves!!!! One fucking oxycodone was $110 thats more than street costs!!!!

The Buddy Cianci story is FASCINATING! Check out the first season of Crimetown, all about Providence. I was skeptical, like "how can there be a whole season of a podcast about crime in Providence, Rhode Island?" and I was so wrong. It's excellent, most of my fellow Scam Goddess listeners would probably really like it.

Laci, why is your driving history like my classmates? She ran over the recycling bin, then almost hit her dad when he tried to pull it out from under the car the same morning before school (HS)

I'm gonna go ahead and guess that Teresa has never lived in a small town in the frigid north, lol. It's very common for folks to leave their car running outside the store around here. I don't recommend it, but it's not unusual.
