🚨 $650 EpiPen Drama: School Staff Rudeness & Reimbursement Runaround! 😤💸

Can you believe the nerve of some people? 😠 I saved a kid's life with my daughter's EpiPens, and the school staff treated me like I was the devil for asking to be reimbursed! 😈 $650 is no joke, especially when insurance only covers it once a year. 💸 But wait, there's more! Turns out the school HAD their own EpiPens, but the staff didn't even know where they were! 🤦‍♀️ Talk about a hot mess. Let's see what the internet has to say about this crazy situation... 👀
