Emergency Room & Me

Time: Four in the morning

Setting: My apartment. I was working on a project and I accidentally stuck my fingers together with very strong super glue

ER: Hello, this is the emergency line for X Hospital.

Me: (worried voice) Errm…yeah I just stuck my fingers together with super glue and I don’t know how to get it off…

ER: Which fingers?

Me: My thumb and index finger…

ER: Does it burn?

Me: No it’s just very itchy...what should I do?

ER: Can I have your name and address please?

Me: (panicking) I’m running it under water now and it’s not helping!

ER: Well, I need your name and address before…

Me: I just stuck them in a jar of Vaseline…

ER: *sighs* Ma’am, I need your name and address first…

Me: I can move them! IT’S WORKING!

ER: Ma’am! I need your name and address before I can help you!

Me: Yaaaay! All right I’m good! Thanks! *click*

So, my question is what if someone is so out of it that they cannot remember their name and address? What then!

    what were you doing with super glue?

    I'm sure if you stayed on the phone long enough the system could track you down unless of course it was Kuwait in which case they wouldn't bother picking up the phone to begin with ..

    laialy: Sniffing it, what else?

    Hehe, no I was renovating a 4-panel board that had an ugly gray felt fabric. I bought new felt fabric (pink & blue, the organization's colors), stripped the ugly gray felt, and proceeded to glue the new fabric down on the corkscrew. During the process of patting down the pink portion, I somehow got some glue on my fingers :/

    chica: Hehe, yeah maybe!

    Jandeef: LOL! Euw! I liked #1 better though. Almost all sequels are crap with the exception of the Godfather (I told ya...random! :P)

    DR: Hehe, well good thing you don't get stuck to the people you're greeting! :P

    lilacs: Now now, let's not generalize one incident :P I guess the woman who talked to me was just following the directions given to her by her higher uppers.
    And without doctors you and I would've probably been dropped on our heads when we were born and thus, we wouldn't be writing as coherently as we are on our blogs :))

    First of all, I agree with your question (is it possible to agree with your question?). It’s a good question to ask. Because if some crazed dude or chica were running through my house with a chainsaw (a la American Psycho screaming “here Caffy, Caffy”, and I just happen to have the fortune of getting to a phone and calling 911, the LAST thing I want to hear is “What is your name and address?” (which they do)..after a while

    The only thing I’ll be thinking is “Crazy @$$ mo-fo with a chainsaw, I’m gonna DIE!” So that’s the only thing I’ll be saying, give or take a few expletives. And if an operator asks for an address, I’d probably ask him / her, “Do you all not have a freakin’ tracing system?!?!”

    Ok, let’s take it down a few notches, and say that I called Emergency Line of X hospital as did you. But I was having a heart attack. Yeah, I would not have the facilities to state my name and address, much less breathe (kinda hard to breathe when your circulatory system refuses to take the oxygen through your veins).

    You know, the technology is out there to trace a child’s phone, so that the parent can know if their kid is out partying with the clique instead of at the library where the kid said he or she will be, but it seems as though emergency (isn’t that the operative word??) services (and let’s not even go near the irony of that word) are a bit behind in the technology department. Even using rudimentary logic and methods, one can find another person…caller ID…phone book…google maps…done.

    Now let’s talk about the superglue…it will still stick to your hands and feel like another layer of skin on your flesh. No worries, it will go away after a while (around a day). Good idea about the Vaseline. But to call the emergency line? Well, I guess at 4 AM anything is possible…I guess it’s better to be cautious...

    Caff: All right, I ADORE you for that comment! It made me laugh so hard!

    Well, I think the reason she thought I could give her the address was that I was sane and stable enough to describe my condition. If I was wheezing or making a sound similiar to gurgling blood or such, I'm sure she would have sent an ambulance over or something.

    And yeah, working on the project since the morning and finishing it in the early morning does wonders for one's sanity, or rather, insanity :P
