    Well, she could be new, or got in trouble for not getting a co-pay from someone before...

    ...but nah, it really just comes down to dumbassedness and insensitivity.

    Yeah, she said in the story she had to fumble through her purse and give her the $5 before they would load her up in the ambulance. I'm just glad she isn't one of those old ladies that only carries nickels and pennies around, she'd be a goner.

    Too bad she didn't just have a roll of dimes in her purse. Or the energy to hit a receptionist with said roll of dimes.

    I'll bite

    The receptionist was stupid for doing what she did, and got reprimanded for it. But this is far from a news worthy story...especially since this happened two weeks ago. And the lady was far from "about to drop dead" if she could visit her doctor under her own power and tell him she wasn't feeling good.

    The lady neglected to pay up front like she was supposed to, the receptionist prolly got reprimanded for doing that before and was worried it would happen again. She wasn't thinking, did something stupid and in the end got in trouble again. I certainly doubt it's the doctor's fault like the old lady is suggesting.

    Just a string of unfortunate, and ultimately insignificant, mistakes on everyone's parts.
