Pick your friends well

Other night, two dudes were rather unceremoniously dumped on our ambulance ramp.  They were, reportedly, not breathing very effectively, thought to be due to ingestion of some substance or another.

Dude who ‘dropped off’ his fellows walked into the ER waiting room, went to the vending machines, got a snack, and left.  Didn’t talk to anyone.

With friends like these…
