Try saying that half way through your fourth night shift.
Worse still - try doing it when you've only had 10 hours sleep in the last four days.
Last night, for the first time ever, I stabbed someone in the chest.
Despite the 200 or so witnesses, and a police officer watching my every move, I got away with it.

The personal danger bit was me being on the verge of pulling out what is left of my ever-receding hairline.
All I hope, is that from now on, if you like a post on here, you'll be able to link to it (and hopefully recommend it) directly on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and a host of other social-networking sites and the like. If the one you want doesn't immediately appear, click on the "Share" button, and your choice will be somewhere on the list.
I shall be eternally grateful if you were to do so.
You'll know this works because you'll be able to read this post. If this post isn't here, I've failed.
But then, you'll never know.

No particularly difficult decisions to make.

Not for long though. Human intelligence eventually took over and cancelled the call with some bemused apologies.
I did have to wonder what the ratio of compressions to ventilations on a rat was. I think I may have verbalised that thought slightly too loudly, much to the amusement of several people standing around at the time.

I, however, have a manifesto of two policies only, both of which will hopefully guarantee me the vote of the entire front-line ambulance community. I'm sure that not a single other person would vote for me, but at least I'd be assured of tens of thousands of green-uniformed votes.
THE GREEN-UNIFORMED INSOMNIAC'S PARTY - A MANIFESTO
- All toilet doors must be built with doors that open outwards.
- All toilet doors must be built with the ability to unlock from the outside.
- All toilets must have enough room to allow for one occupant and two rescuers to enter simultaneously and not involve either stepping on the occupant, sitting on the toilet seat instead of the occupant, or partially hanging out of the window whilst rescuing said occupant.
- All toilet rescues are to be carried out without the relative of the collapsed occupant having already gained access first, but by so doing prevented other rescuers getting in without having to sit on their lap.
Vote for stability?
Vote for the sane?
Or are you going to vote for me?
