Top Ten Excuses Patients Give To Get A Discount

No. Ten
I've know your father. He was my schoolmate/work colleague/my teacher/someone I met on the street.....

No. Nine
The other clinic is offering the same treatment for half the price. (Yeah, right!)

No. Eight
We are of the same religion.

No. Seven
Charge my daughter less lah. She's still studying. (You mean she has pay for her dental treatment? Aren't you, the parent, supposed to pay for her?)

No. Six
If you extract two, got cheaper or not?

No. Five
If you give me a discount, I will ask all my friends to come see you. (And if I don't, you will tell them to stay away? Is this a threat then?)

No. Four
Singapore is only charging X amount. (Madam, THIS IS MALAYSIA, not Singapore. And by the way, they charge in Singapore dollars which is 2.3X the value of the Malaysian ringgit. )

No. Three
I thought you said it was only x ringgit the last time I saw you? (Which was let me see..... oh 1998???)

No. Two
You've lost weight/You gained weight... Now become such a leng chai doctor... (Puh-lease.)
