You can't fool me
I always find it fascinating when people think they can outsmart me. I'm not claiming to be the smartest person in the world, but I'm pretty damned sharp. Tonight a 22-year old schmuck who REEKED of alcohol drunkenly rolled his golf cart at the country club tonight and then tried to claim he only had 2 beers...nice try, stupid. Even after I tell these idiots that I am NOT the police and that I WILL be checking his blood alcohol level, they all stick with their story. It's almost always "2 beers". Were these 60 ounce beers?

When I was an EMT we used to joke that yeah technically they had 2 beers so they weren't exactly lying. They were, however, omitting the other beers and shots they had.ReplyDelete
Not surprisingly I'm happy to be out of adult medicine and instead working in a level 4 NICU (here in the states level 1 trauma is the best but for ICUs level 4 is the best).
