Shabby to the rescue.

I was minding me own business, as i do.... [leave it lactic] ......when a flippin car decided it was time to leave the road and head for the big knackers yard in the sky and thinking it could take its occupant with it......... tsk tsk.....not on my watch... you just know ya cant leave someone bleeding and making a mess on the upholstery of the car apart from the stain it gets into all the nooks and crannies......... ewww ..... and not even one of athriftymrs potions could get that out of a good shag pile.
Well the car couldn't be saved but thankfully the man who was inside could be.
Now i am no hero but for some strange reason all my training kicked in........umph..... i was out of my car first aid kit in hand and through the stricken windscreen like a ninja on speed .......... [for those that know me that is no mean feat] ....... looking into this mans eyes bought back some memories and autonomy leaped into action, getting a neck collar on him and getting under him so i could take his weight, then undoing his seat belt and lowering him out onto the ground was all done on Adrenalin............ why did i go into that car? why did i get him out? why did i hurt my freaking back.............i dunno, all i know is that when someone is hurting we do things that we wouldn't normally do........... why did i post this.......... because, even though i worked for years as a paramedic and saw things like this and worse every day............ i am still shaken by it and needed to get it out.......... feel better now, who wants a babysham they are on Dave he is OK and promised me a drink, i excepted saying "only if i can bring me shabby mates with me" see even when I'm doing me wonder woman act i am thinking of yous lot.............. funny that.......... oh and Dave broke a Leg and his Arm and needed 24 stitches in his head, so apart from that he is OK.

Get better soon Dave and don't forget the drinks are on you...........

I'm sorry, I only just read this. You are amazing, you know that, don't you. I'm glad Dave's going to be alright - you tell him from us that we're all thinking of him. I think we would all respond, but most of us wouldn't know what to do in a situation like that.
As for minding your own business. Lactic? Lol. You!? Lol cough splutter, choke, cough.
Lots of these xxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxx
