Dear /a/,

A couple weeks ago, I had a dentist appointment that a family member had scheduled for me on my behalf, and then failed to tell me about.

Needless to say, given that the appointment was scheduled near the butt-crack of dawn, I promplty slept through it.

Then I got a letter from them informing me that missing an appointment without calling ahead gets you a $54 fine. I ignored it, planning to pay the debt the next time I was in the office.

I got a new letter this week. This time the dollar amount was highlighted in red, and at the bottom of the page there was something new:

"If you are unable to pay your balance at this time, there are alternative methods you may be able to take."

I just put together the thought that my dentist has really tiny drills. Should I pay the balance, or...
