bumper cars

Well its a winter f--kin' wonderland out there: "Isn't it pretty blah blah blah?" Our first major snowfall  of the season and of course, people go nuts. Its like bumper cars on the streets.  300 accidents as of this afternoon.  Every Tom, Dick and Harriet comin' in with their fender-bender neck pain, back pain.  Blah blah blah.  Willing to sit in the waiting room for hours to get their non-existent injury looked at.  Whatever, easy patients for us.

What always amazes me is the people who despite the blizzard like conditions, still make their way to the ER for their chronic back pain, puncture wound, STDs.  I swear there could be 6 feet of snow on the ground and they would tunnel their way through.

So anyway, at mid day it was chaos.  Ambulances bringing in two patients at once.  Then by evening there were 5 people in the ER.  I  got to leave early.  Yeah!
