Unblocking clogged kihoro 280 USD - Do it yourself with a plunger. $5
- Quote for changing vehicle oxygen sensor 600 USD. Never goes bad in Toyotas, Nissans or Hondas. If it does, it’s after 12 years. And they cost $10 at the salvage yard.
-Changing a house tap. 250 USD - Changed once every 20 years. I have never seen anyone change one.
-Braiding hair. 280 USD - Part time students do it for $100. Also in the ghetto for the same.
-Average doctor visit 1000 USD. Of course less with insurance <—You got it.
-Basic one week stay in hospital before meds. 100,000 USD. Insurance will take care of some -Insurance x 2
-One tube of antibiotic skin ointment 66 USD- -Insurance x 3
-Complete brake overhaul 1000 USD - What is a brake overhaul? A brake pad is $5. 4 would be $20.
-One shot at SJ basic Kunguru 100 USD. Premium kunguru 300 and up - Tinder dates are free.

.
When a sewer line is blocked by tree roots and such, you cannot unclog it with a plunger ndugu. The kihoro specialist has to come in with a swer coil like the one shown below. It is fed into the line while it rotates and the hook at the end will unclog even the toughest shi.et out there.

A brake overhaul is done when your pads are worn out and your rotors are thin to the bone and metal rubs on metal. It is not just brake pads ndugu

They earn a lot of money those guys in the American country. They are very rich those guys and can afford these charges without struggling unlike us here in Afferika.

I believe they are paid as much. Hata mwenye anakupea services anadeserve minimum wage ili nyote mkuwe fiti. Si Kama Kenya CEO anapata 1m pm na analipa mboch 2500 pm.

And how often does your sewer line get blocked by tree roots if ever? For brakes, in my 5 years of driving, I’ve only had to skim my brake discs once coz some bonobo Indian gave me faulty brake pads that dug grooves in the disc and it had to be skimmed which made them thinner and less effective!

They get paid per hour ghaseer. One hour 15 dorras and they can hold multiple jobs while at it. For the ambitious one's, before aende kudoze, anachapa freelancing for an hour or two and calls it a day.

Hapo kwa Healthcare ndio US huwa imetupa mbao. Uko na insurance na bado utaletewa bill wazimu after they have covered part of it. And insurance is not cheap either. Better hapa mtaani kuna options mob. Some countries like Canada and Germany has universal or affordable insurance via the government hence no price gouging at the hospitals.
