Not So Funny



I'm not sure how many people know about online etiquette and the dangers of not providing a proper explanation.

I used to have nightmares growing up of not being able to call 911 when I needed to.  My hands would shake and tremble in those dreams and no matter how I tried, I couldn't get them to cooperate.  Well, I found out tonight that I actually have NOTHING to fear.

When what I thought was a true emergency presented itself to me, I took charge.

My friend who posted in the image below is a very dear friend on the Eastern coast of the United States.  He's a cancer survivor.  He's brave and generous and wonderful - and he's just a tad bit twisted.

I've removed the names for the privacy of those who posted in this moment of crisis...




the scare


So do yourself and your friends a favor - don't joke about health issues. They're not so funny when you're in tears telling a 911 operator that you have no idea what's going on with a dear friend. They're also not so funny if you're the one posting and you open the door to a bunch of Boys in Blue, asking if you need medical assistance!!
