My best friend tripped in a hole in the sidewalk a couple of months ago. She was going her morning jog, not really looking at her steps, but admiring the beautiful morning light and the sunrise.
She fell down and hit her head on the cement. She lost consciousness and woke up in the hospital, a few hours later. Some passers by called an ambulance. One of them was still with her, a girl about our age, who didn’t want her to wake up alone, even though she didn’t know her. As she was jogging, she didn’t have her phone with her, nor an ID or anything like that, so they couldn’t contact anyone from her family. This sweet girl thought that it would be horrible to wake up all alone, in a hospital, and that it’s better to have a stranger looking after you than nobody at all. So she stayed with her.
She was having a pretty bad headache, some bruises and her right arm was in a cast. Wonderful, just what she needed. She’s a writer, and without an arm, she can’t really type as fast as she has to to meet all the deadlines. She was going to have to take time off, which she did. One month off work.
The only good thing that came out of this was a new friend, for both of us. But for all the rest, she is ready to claim the financial compensation she’s entitled to.
