Next time, you’re better off just suffering through your angina attack on your own

In England, I gather that 999 is the equivalent of our 911 here in the states. So when an 83-year-old heart patient called 999 and asked for help, an ambulance was sent to the scene. When the ambulance arrived, paramedic Stephen Canning wound up twisted his ankle when a light outside the house went out. And so, naturally, he’s now suing the 83-year-old and his younger 82-year-old wife, who say the whole thing “has left a very sour taste in the mouth.”

I think that’s just the angina backwash.
