flipped-car

Worked the night shift in the ER last night and a solid 3 hours of it was spent on the floor trying to console a woman whose 17 year old son had been driving home when his car flipped and hit a tree. He would have survived if he had been wearing his seatbelt. 

Please always wear your seatbelt. I see things like this far too often and it breaks my heart when I realize it could have been avoided. I don’t give a fuck if you think it’s uncomfortable or “not cool” or whatever. You know what’s not fucking comfortable or cool? When your mother/father/husband/sister collapses on the floor of the ER because they were just informed that you didn’t make it, when they cling to the scrubs of a surgeon begging for them to take extraordinary measures, when they see your body covered in blood and can hardly make out the face of what used to be their son/daughter. Please wear your seatbelt. It’s not that fucking hard.

I don’t think y’all realize how much Tumblr educated me on things.

I’m listening to Jodeci and at the end of the track, one the members was like “Oh, you don’t have no man? I know you don’t. So you can just leave with me.”

Bruh, I fucking flipped in the car. I was like “what the fuck? Why isn’t “no” an appropriate answer. Why isn’t “no” enough? She has to have a man for you to respect her decision of “no”? This some bullshit. Men always equate power to the level of another man.”

My mom was like

My mom and I were driving home today and saw a car swerve and flip off the road into a ditch. The car was driving all over the road and into the grass the whole way home, and I guess the driver took the curve too fast or wasn’t paying attention and the car flipped right off the road. I’m guessing the driver was intoxicated in some way since he/she was driving bad the whole time. Anyway, I’ve never seen anything like it in my life, it was like something from a movie. I know stuff like that happens all the time, but I’ve never witnessed it and this was literally right in front of us. I’m still so shocked about it and it keeps replaying in my head and I’m really freaked out by it. So that was my day.
