Mismanaged Health Care

A co-worker had a hernia operation last week, which lead to the following text message exchange:

Me: Hey. Just wanted to check in to see how you’re doing. Did everything go okay?

Him: Feel awful but will be out of the woods in a few days. Thanks for checking in.

Me: They put you in the woods after your operation? I guess you were right. Our medical plan really does suck.
