The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    How can this **** be legal?

    They require a routine physical exam for graduate school.

    I am covered by the insurance provided by the school.

    My insurance doesn't cover routine physical exams, and now I owe $317.00.

    For an appointment I would not have made otherwise.

    It sucks - but it is your responsibility to check into the procedure to make sure it's covered before you have it.

    What does it matter if I check whether it's covered or not, when I have no choice but to do it? This complete bull****. Don't require a ****ing physical if you won't cover it. Not everyone can afford decent health coverage.

    LOL I've gotta agree with Ben. Know your policy. Student policies are rarely worth much unless you've lost a limb

    Talk to the school about it. They might be willing to cover it if you give them enough grief.

    That kinda stuff pisses me off too about schools. They'll rip you off left and right b/c they know you want their degree.

    Legally I'm pretty sure the school is right.

    Morally they're terribly wrong. I'd call and bother them about it, you might be able to save yourself the cash. My school was the same way, they'd nickel and dime you till you bled to death, meanwhile they took like a month just to get transcript out for you. It ended up costing me close to $1000 in lost wages but the school doesn't give a **** of course. Of course they told a flat out lie as well, that my transcript would be out in a day.
    Chris Mason is my master.....

    American cars are like fat people, sure, they have a lot of power, but they're not built well, and they have all that useless weight, plus they make both make funny noises.

    feel free to aim me, nejar462 im on a lot. Don't know much to warn you dudes, but im good at conversations.

    Belial in reference to Ronnie Coleman, "Some people say he still has blood in his steroid stream, but I doubt it. Gas isn't one of the side effects, but that massive bloated overly muscular freak of nature circus sideshow appearance might be what tips most people off."
