A scenario I came up with out of the blue:
Jim: "Hey Mike. What's wrong?"
Mike: "My thoughts are killing me right now."
Jim: "What about?"
Mike: "I had just left work. It was dark. And you know how dangerous it gets
in that neighborhood."
Jim: "You still work off Skid Row?"
Mike: "Yeah. Well, anyways, I was walking to my car when a man started coming at me
really fast. Almost stumbling."
Jim: "Uh oh."
Mike: "I thought he was gonna rob me. I was freaking out. Then he got really close
and started mumbling. But I was so scared, I pulled out my taser and stunned
him in the left eye."
Jim: "Oh boy."
Mike: "And he fell down. Hard. But I honestly didn't know what to do. Then I felt bad.
So I tried to wake him up. Even gave him CPR.
Jim: "What? Why?"
Mike: "Because I thought it was the right thing to do. But he didn't respond.
So I stunned him in the other eye to see if that would get his attention."
Jim: "You've gotta be kidding me."
Mike: "It didn't work. No response at all."
Jim: "Gee, ya think?"
Mike: "But eventually he came to. The funeral home."
Jim: "That's terrible!"
Mike: "I went. I spoke a few good words. Even though I didn't know him.
Turns out he was running late, was hungover, and needed directions to his new job.
At the cemetery."
Jim: "Damn. Sounds like he dug himself into a hole."
