Look, they're just not most of the time. And that's fine. I enjoy the non emergent stuff too, plus, if we saw exclusively life threatening emergencies at all time, one, my job would most certainly be in danger, and two, it would be reallllly stressful.
But, in the spirit of Christmas unity and peace on earth, let me just throw one out there that I think we can all agree on. Checking into the ER to get documentation from a doctor that you have the sickle cell trait so you can try to use it to get on disability? Really? Not an emergency. Any questions? Okay, great.
