She doesn't talk that fast. Listen to her when the subtitles are scrolling at the bottom of the screen. She's not talking fast at all, but the subtitles are done to make it seem like she is.
It's pretty fast I think. I mean she's got the world record.
a few years ago i was walking home and heard some screaming, i ran around the corner and found this guy trying to rape a girl. i pulled him off gave him a few slaps and chased him off. a taxi driver nearby had called the police and they came screeching around the corner, advanced on me thinking i was the guy. the girl was too histerical to contradict them but luckily the taxi driver came running around and pointed out that i wasnt the guy. then, wait for it, the guy came back. as the cops started talking to him i made my exit.
wow, that's kind of terrifying.
The closest I have ever gotten to saving anyone was when I was 8 and my mom cut her finger very badly right after the diagnosis of her ITP, and I yelled to my dad that we needed to go to the hospital. (I was a major hero LOL)
Ooh! Well I'm glad that you got your Dad's attention.
I saved my Dad a couple of times. He was having seizures in Las Vegas and I called the security staff because he wasn't answering the phone and I knew something was wrong, and they found him and saved him. And he's had some other health stuff where I called the ambulance myself.
Seriously amusing. :)
And that's awesome. :)
Last summer I was at a cookout at my uncle's house and they have an inground pool. My daughter was swimming in a little floaty suit and smiling and waving at everyone on the patio when her cousin came up behind her (she was 2 and he was 3 at the time) and jumped on her back to give her a hug. Well she went under and everyone was yelling for him to move and he didn't understand so in highly dramatic fashion I ran across the patio and dove into the pool.
I was so pissed.
Oh my God. That must have been TERRIFYING. :( *hugs*
I found out this past weekend that my best friend was raped while hiking the appalachian trail. She wanted me to go with her, asked me so many times to go, and I stayed here at school. If I was there I might have been able to do something, the bastard might not have even stopped to pick her up. no I've never saved anyone.
*hugs* You can't blame yourself for something like that. Is your friend okay? Did she file a police report?
lol what a cute title "Heor Milkman of the Millenium." i love it. Good for him, thats great :)
Thanks for sharing that!
I drove Belinda to Cedar Sinai instead of the hospital she wanted to go to. It was tough going against her wishes, but we found out later that if I hadn't, she most likely would've died before her original choice of hospital figured out that her liver was failing again.
I don't know if I can technically call that a save (since you know the end result), but I did get a few more months of friendship from her out of it as a result... so I'm grateful for that.

Re: I guess milk really does a body (and buildings) good!
I saved this old guy who was adjusting the outside mirror on his caravan when a semi-trailer came around the corner and hit him. The driver didn't stop and I had to provide first aid and calm his hysterical wife until the ambulance arrived. Since we were in the middle of nowhere, we had to flag down another truck to radio for help. The ambulance took over half an hour. He was pretty mangled, but he lived :)
That's my good deed.
Oooh wow, that must have been scary. I bet they were glad to have you there. :)
never with 320 pints of milk, thats for sure.
For some reason I think I have, but that's probably just me not being able to separate my fantasies from reality.
Awww, my grandma has that problem. hehe. ;)
As a nurse in a hospital, I certainly hope that I've saved a few people! I certainly did my best! I know I've helped to save lots of people over the years, but not so heroically as that milkman. Boy! Those were PINTS! My gosh his fingers must have been sore after all that!
Right?! I think it's really incredible what he did.
I don't think I've directly saved anyone.
But I'm going to someday; even if it kills me.
Well, try not to let it kill you. :)
I was a lifeguard for one, long, miserable summer. It was at a pseudo-water-park that parents seemed to mistake for free daycare. Each lifeguard averaged 27 saves a month. Like I said...long summer
Oh my Lord. That's soooo scary. *hugs* Did anyone drown?
I once saved two brothers from drowning. The younger first, then the older.
My brother pulled 5 children from a home that caught fire. They were left unattended as the parents went out for a festive night. Then he actually went in and put the fire out himself. He was made an honorary firefighter for his efforts.
Oh my goodness. Thank goodness you were there, and your brother was there!!
