I have heard of people wanting to start their own businesses or finding ways to make extra money. My chiropractor is looking to start a microbrewery. Yea, he wants to make beer. Guess there isn't much money in snapping and cracking backs these days.

Well, my brother is a Prison Officer. At one stage he did Security guard work as well. Now he sells a lot on Ebay & makes good money. He picks up crockery et6c at garage sales for say, 50c & sells it for $15.00.

LOL. It looks like he would be making some really good money since he is a chiropractor. I guess there is not very many people who can afford to go to one, especially if they do not have insurance these days. I guess he has to make up for his loss of wages with that. Who knows? You should invite him to Mylot for some extra money, LOL.

I think it may be that he wants to diversify. In hard times people will cut out on getting medical treatments, but then they will not do without partaking of their special beverages. One of the chiropractors I saw seemed to me to be running a money mill, getting us in and out to the tune of $80 or more for ten to fifteen minutes.

Each time I saw him he had at 2 in the waiting room and one in the treatment room. I felt a little dismayed at this.

Are you sure he's not a drunk hon? This doesn't sound right to me. Be careful my friend.

My chiropractor kept his fee at $25 for about 5 years, he just raised it to $30. Sometimes I'm the only patient there all morning. I know because he sits and talks to me because he's bored out of his mind. I worked for a chiropractor for a couple weeks as a temp setting up appointments. He booked four an hour, one every 15 minutes. Usually only 1 or 2 showed up an hour. I worked beautiful days during the summer. So bad weather wasn't the reason why they canceled. Can't be they needed to go to a Dr. very badly or they would have been there. Also most didn't call so we could schedule someone else. Someone who might be in real pain. That upset me the most. What if they were in pain and trying to get in to see the Doctor and couldn't because he was all booked up and half the people didn't show? Luckily, usually at least one person would call in a day so we could call the person back and fit him or her in. Chiropractors are like everyone else, they like to try their hand at different interests.
