J6721 & Erich comment on wearing guns while being x-rayed in the 'Another vote for Smartcarry' thread reminded me of a couple from my days working in the ER. 1-An obnoxious drunk who'd been in a fight & was giving the ER staff a hard time needed a shoulder x-ray which I did & revealed the .25 auto in his shirt pocket.I suggested he remove his shirt or "anything he had on that might interfere with the x-ray" only to be rewarded with a good cussing.I shrugged,took him & the film back to the ER & invited the cop working security to view the film with me & the doc. ElDrunko left in handcuffs. 2-Another drunk who'd caused a car wreck that virtually wiped-out an innocent family needed stitches for the +/- 2" cut on his forehead.He also had given the ER staff a hard time.The doc on duty sent to Surgery for a surgical staple gun & proceeded to staple the wound closed....without benefit of anesthesia. "Ka-chung" "WAAA!!!" 3-A third obnoxious drunk was told "Look.You're going to get a shot. I have big needles,small needles,sharp needles & dull needles & the one you get depends on your attitude." He chilled. 4-A guy came to the ER with 2 small stab wounds in his rear;one about 1" from the anus.His story was he'd picked-up a girl & while they were driving back to his apartment she stabbed him. ("Ookkaayy") While he was getting stitched he looked up & said "She sure fixed my ass didn't she?" & indeed someone had.
