ED physicians at the VA can diagnose bed bugs, but when presented with a patient who complains of abdominal pain, the first thing they do is page general surgery.

The American Express Centurion (or “Black”) card can be used to buy pretty much anything. Too bad it is by invitation only. Interesting facts here.
