Hello Frugal Confessions Readers!
Here is my frugal confession of the week:
I must admit, it is the strangest thing coming into work once a year with a urine sample cup waiting for you on your desk. For me, this was last week! As much as I hate the invasion of privacy, our annual medical monitoring at work has a lot of upsides. Once a year a medical facility in a trailer comes to our job and takes our blood to test for cholesterol, diabetes, etc., and gives us a full physical (including hearing, vision, EKG, etc.). If we need vaccinations of some kind (Tetanus, Hepatitis A/B, etc.), we can have these administered on site. We are given results by a doctor about five weeks afterwards.
And the entire thing is for free. No co-pays, no costs for any vaccinations, or for the follow-up with the doctor. So, while it may feel a little intrusive, I am thankful for having such a great service at no cost to me and consider it a perk of my job.
Are you in a field of work that requires an annual physical and testing?
What is your confession of the week? I’d love to hear it!
