Medic almost knocks out a 90-year old patient after getting ‘spooked’ whilst at her address
The story below was sent into us via our main website.
All stories which are sent into us via this method, are done so anonymously so we have no idea as to who the Medic concerned is (not that we would tell you even if we did know who it was).
But the following story does go to show the many ‘hazards’ which come with working through the night on the never-ending night shift. At the very least, it shows you that tiredness also leads to ‘jumpiness’ as well.
Had this call of happened during the day shift, then I can almost guarantee that the medic concerned in the story below wouldn’t have almost knocked this poor lady out.
And before you read on, please know that it was not the medic’s intentions to hit the lady!
We have to add this, as we know, from experience, that there will ALWAYS be characters out there who will criticise ‘incidents’ such as this, or twist and contort them in order to fulfil their own hidden agendas.
“While reading the medics story of being called to a foggy spooky house in the latest issue of S__ts & Giggles, it reminded me about the time i almost knocked out a 90-year old female and my crew mate.
It was a night shift and we were called to a lifeline activation around 0200.
These type of calls I’ve never been keen on.
Told key safe and entry via back door. We arrive to a massive house in the middle of no where, find the key safe and are very loud opening the door and saying who we are.
Armed with pen torches we go about trying to find a light switch, no luck.
Start walking down a long hall way to the front door thinking that the lights are down there.
As i’m going along the long dark hallway i bump into one of those small tables, the type where the top is small held up by a long pole and three short feet, mostly used to put the phone on.
I knock it but catch it before it falls but drop my only light in the process.
Its at that point i hear a long sigh – I spin on the spot and there’s this pale lady with white hair and white night gown on.
Its at this point i give a manly yell, jump back and knock the table flying, she then starts walking towards me and i was close to letting a fist fly in her general direction at this point my crew mate, like a ninja puts a hand on my arm, i give another manly yell and almost land a fist in my crew mates direction!
Life line pressed in error and we left.
Outside i managed to bribe the crew mate not to tell anyone and after a couple of smokes and ordering a new torch online we left.
Green oppo, from deepest Kent.”

As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
