On a Crowded Hospital Shuttle
Resident (on cell phone): I'm on the bus and it's crowded, so I have to talk quietly.
There is a moment of silence as the person on the other end of the line talks.
Resident (in an even louder voice than before): It's going well, I'm glad to be here, but it has been a rough week.
Another pause as the other person talks.
Resident (even more loudly so it is hard not to hear throughout the bus): Well, in the past week my dog got sick and had to go to the emergency vet, I got hit by a car while riding my bike, and our apartment nearly burned down and the fire department had to come and put it out.
Damn, now that's what The Lone Coyote calls a very bad week.
