Because of one or more of these things, unfortunately I do have some repeat customers. Like Arthur (not his real name™).
A very drunken Arthur was brought to me one very drunken night several drunken months ago. He was too intoxicated to walk in a straight line so had tried crossing the road in some kind of zig-zag pattern. Unfortunately for Arthur, cars have a very difficult time avoiding people walking in a seemingly random pattern, especially at night when the sot is wearing all black on a dark unlit road. Based on an interview with the driver and the damage to the car, the medics informed me that he had struck his head on the windscreen before bouncing over the car and landing in an inebriated puddle. When he first arrived to me, Arthur was rather combative and argumentative. That's a problem in trauma, because this obnoxious behaviour can be due to multiple things:
- brain injury
- the guy is just an asshole
