Med School Exams

We were watching "10 Years Younger" while working out at the gym last week, and they gave the lady lasik surgery. I remarked how bad I wanted to get that done to which my workout partner told me, "Oh you should totally do it! It was awesome." I looked over at her and shot jealous rays at her. She asked me if I had been saving up for it, and I told her no, because we have more important things to pay for. She asked why I didn't I just use the payment plan.

TM does not do payment plans. I HATE owing money. If I can't buy it outright then I don't need it. The only things I need in life are food, shelter, one outfit, and for where I live and work, a vehicle. So unless it has to do with those things, I don't NEED it. I have a credit card, and I only use it for online purchases so my bank account info isn't at risk. I pay it off every single month as I do with my Macy's card. Another reason why I haven't gotten the surgery yet is because we have student loan debt. How am I gonna spend $4000 on some eye surgery when that money could eliminate so much debt?

I've come up with a simple solution on how I can get the surgery and not spend all that money, be a guinea pig. I figure before they graduate from eye surgery school they have to practice right? I could be their final exam! I shared this with my workout buddy and she forbade me from volunteering my eyes. Once they make it to their final they should be pretty good right? I mean, what's the worst that could happen? I'd be blinded for life? Hmmm, that could pose a problem since I stare at a computer, cell phone, or television all day every day.

I still don't think it's that bad of an idea, but I'm open for suggestions. How can I get somebody to give me Lasik surgery?

you don't do layaways either?

No suggestions for getting the surgery. In fact, I'm gonna keep checking back in case someone offers a good suggestion. I'd like to have the sugrery as well.
