Chris Rock has a hilarious bit about being "Chris Rock"...but living next door to a dentist.
"Do you know what the white man who lives next door to me does for a living? He's a **** dentist! He ain't the best dentist in the world...he ain't going to the dental hall of fame...he don't get plaques for getting rid of plaque. He's just a yank-your-tooth-out dentist. See, the black man gotta fly to get to somethin' the white man can walk to."
it's pretty true. my buddy did his med school at northwestern, and he said these 2 doctors (proctologists - butt doctors) lived next door and across the street from scottie pippen. i'd be pissed if i were scottie.
shadow - from the dentist friends i know, the ones that work 3 days a week don't make the million dollar paychecks. those usually do surgery. but either way, the quality of life is sick compared to ibankers and finance guys.
i also know a friend of a friend, who's an anesthesiologist, and got an offer for 650k a yr with 14 weeks of vacation. sickening.
