    Haha! I'm sure they still feel a little bitter when they hand over the 15 billing cards from overnight and the staff didn't offer to buy them dinner...

    Give me a break! I have seem my attending billing sheets (he showed them to me... making over $700000). Excuse me if I don't buy you coffee and if I think you are cheap ass...

    HA HA HA. If you are in primary care you are NOT rolling in it. KAB

  6. Two points:

    1.) I should have pointed out that there is a difference between young attendings and senior attendings. There's a reason they call young attendings "hungry."

    2.) What you bill for and what you get paid are two different things.

    That said, you don't need to buy my coffee either. I just make it at home now because it's cheaper.

  7. Haha.... ha... ha, ha ha
