    OK...on with the odd questions...

    What is the worst BOGO sale you can think of?


    Um...there are so many, but how about, proctology exam?

    Colonoscopy. :fear: Brain surgery (hey, I did that once, and once was enough!).

    Apropos of nothing, I was once in a shop that was trying to get rid of their cheap costume jewelry. They were advertising an "I.Q. Test" sale: Buy one pair of earrings for $5.00, or buy 2 pairs for $2.00. To no one's surprise they were doing a booming business in cheap earrings.

    A medical test called an EMG. When I had one done I was literally screaming.
    Never again. I have an entrapped ulnar nerve in my right elbow and the test was to determine how much muscle damage there was. Electrodes are stuck into your arm by a tech. Then the neurologist came in and electricity is turned on. There were about 30 electrodes stuck in my arm. He then stuck them into my left arm to determine what was normal.

    Prior to my spinal surgery (has it really been 35 years?) they performed a test called a myelogram, where you lay on your side and they use a needle that feels like it is 7 feet long to inject dye into the spinal canal. You absolutely cannot move even a fraction of an inch without risking permanent cord injury. Afterwards, you have to lay perfectly flat on your back for several hours or risk a monster headache. Such fun. So yeah, that would top my list for a worst BOGO..

    I would love buy one get one free on anything dental! They never have sales. :(

    I can't think of many things I wouldn't want to go on sale. Maybe snakes? But I'm never gonna buy a snake. :dunno:

    I agree. Medical/dental procedures aren't cheap even with insurance. If I had a medical condition, even an unpleasant one, I'd want a free visit to make sure I was good to go so I know I'm better. That doesn't mean I'd WANT that condition.

    DD needs all 4 wisdom teeth removed. I wish I could find a coupon for those. The tooth fairy won't be there to pay the copay.

    There is a huge sign in my Dr.'s office about buying procedures online. The more you buy, the cheaper the procedures are. Not exactly a BOGO, but pretty close.

    I can see it...."I want this procedure, oh, and that one, and maybe this one". lol

    A skin biopsy is probably the worst I've had at the moment.

    A colonoscopy would have to be my answer. The process leading up to it is a PITA. Literally.

    I would agree. Especially if you have hemorrhoids. That was probable me you heard screaming when I was going through the process leading up to it.

    I had to look up what the hell a BOGO even was, so I'd say a deal by a wedding planner :biggrin:

    I think the worst BOGO deals are the ones that claim to be BOGO, but it's really a buy one, get one 25% off.

    That kind of hoodwinking gets me, too. Or, "Buy one at $20.00, get one for $19.95! (Plus $.05 tax)"
    :rolleyes3: Wow. Let me take a nitro tab to calm my excitement from this incredible deal.
    :lol:

    :flail: Colonoscopy! OMG! Although if you have to have two I think the second should be free! Any second medical anything!

    That was my second one. The first colonoscopy did not go through very good. They should have to pay you to have the second one.
