Notes from an ER

Waiting in the ER waiting room for six hours.

Amish people. I thought they didn't drive cars.

A man with a mullet walking around with a large bag of jerky and a can of Yoo-hoo!

A woman screaming about her migraine. She has been there for "10 hours." It's 1am and she arrived at 9. Math isn't her strength, but she will press charges on this hospital.

An ADD Latino man in a passionate conversation with his girlfriend. He likes the word "fuck" and keeps confusing Greg Ferguson with Greg Kinnear.

A woman walks by with her catheter bag on the way outside to smoke a Swisher Sweet.
