A homeless woman set up camp on the edge of the track. She didn’t interact with anyone; she just wanted a place to spend the night. My team member approached her, asked, “Would you like some breakfast?”. The woman said, “Oh, yes please!”, and he gave her some of the bagel breadsticks that he took from the concession stand.
I get pissed off and judge people all the time. I wish I wouldn’t. Helping people regardless of condition– isn’t that what training to be an EMT is all about?
Side note– Sleeping intermittently for about an hour while sitting up on the bench of an ambulance (which is tilted forward at a 50-degree angle) and snuggling up against the M-tank is not particularly fun. But it was worth it 🙂
