I forgot that, but yes, he well knows to replace the timing belt on cars that need it. His maintenance is usually carried out very well.
No, living near the hospital is not something he is going to do. And, yes, his wife is an issue. She shuddered as they drove around town. It is not crime, city-data is like 230 I think. The streets are like gullies and foot deep potholes, and a lot of boarded up houses. Population has dropped 14% since 2000.
His (hospitalist) residency is going to be 80 hours a week, maximum under current Federal law. I realize there are hospitals which tell residents to write down 80 hours even if they work 110, but this director is gung-ho on education, and she says over 80 hours is not education, it is abuse. Yes, that was a long time ago, and residents killed too many people after 24 or 30 hours without sleep.
My son says non-profits get paid a lot of money for each resident. So, working over 80 hours is basically using them to make even more money for the hospital. In this case, the rural area has an extreme shortage of doctors, so they are hoping some will stay there after licensing.
The statement that it might go 500,000 or 210,001, if sincere, is what I wanted to know. If someone said no Maza will go 250,000 miles or ? that would be scary. But, if some do go a long ways with highway driving and good maintenance, then I feel I told him correctly.
He has already looked around at used cars, because his wife will need one if she teaches. He saw a 2009 Crown Vic Interceptor with 110,000 for $6,000. And, a couple 2004/2005 Le Sabres for $5,000. I don’t know if all Le Sabres get great highway mileage, but at one time they cranked out over 30 mpg at 70 mph.
