  • Vasectomy

    The wife and I are working on a second child and I’m already thinking of getting a vasectomy after this project is done.

    Do you think they’ll agree to charge 50 % since I’ve only got one left?

      Well, they should, but since there is no way to know what the charge for a double is, how would you know if they honoured the agreement? I've lost most of my teeth to periodontal disease,they don't charge any less to clean what's left.

        Yeah I guess I assumed it was posted tounge-in-cheek.

        The reality is that the marginal cost of doing both over one is tiny, probably like 5 minutes of work. The cost is all in the fixed overhead of the hospital, sterile room and instruments, insurance, etc etc.
