It was a stifling hot day and a man collapsed in the middle of a busy intersection.
Traffic quickly piled up in all directions while two women rushed forward to help him.
When one knelt down to loosen the victim’s collar, a man emerged from the crowd, pushed her aside, and said,
“It’s all right, honey!
I’ve had a course in first aid.”
The woman stood up and watched as he took the ill man’s pulse and prepared to administer artificial respiration. At this point yet another woman pushed forward.
‘Make way!’ she demanded. ‘I’m an aromatherapist!’
The first woman watched patiently. At length she interrupted.
‘Excuse me!’ she said,
“When you all get around to calling a doctor,
I’d like to inform you that I’m already here.”
