His anecdote: I was at a sporting event gentleman behind me gasped and fell over. I climbed over the seat andfirst established that he was breathing. As I checked the man’s pulse rhythm, a woman stormed over and pushed me away.
“Step aside! I’m a nurse!” she shouted. She then proceeded to examine the man.
As I retreated to my seat, I announced, “When you get to the part about ‘Call a doctor,’ I’ll be here.”
