Timing is Everything

I had just finished grilling some chicken on the BBQ. I walked up to the dinner table and as I set the plate of chicken down...."Medic Engine 461, MBA, medical aid." It gets worse. The call was for a bloody nose. At this point I'm grumbling a little bit since dinner was interrupted. When we got on scene the nose in question had stopped bleeding. The patient has a previous medical condition that lends itself to bloody noses. She just wanted to get checked out before she had her fiance take her to the hospital. Her nose had bee bleeding since the night before. I can understand wanting to get checked out by us first. This we did and sent her on her way, cancelling the ambulance. Then it was back to dinner.
