Apparently you can only use white or amber LED lights on motorcycles or trikes in Texas but you can use blue on cars or trucks! The law passed two years ago, we had never heard this before but when I checked online later I found it.

It pissed me off for a couple of reasons. One is we had a state trooper admiring our trike 2 weeks ago when the blue lights were on, and he didn't mention it and two why ban them on some vehicles and not others.

Ok, rant over
That would piss me off as well. Inconsistent/illogical rules piss everyone off. I suppose you should be grateful you didn't get a fine. Arsewipes.

Husband left writhing on the floor in pain for 5 hours in the ER. Until they finally gave him some pain relief

Oh noes. . I was on the floor writhing in pain when I went to St Mike's...but have to say they were brilliant. While hubby was signing me in...they gave me a shot of morphine...don't remember much else...

Hope it's nothing too serious and he makes a full and speedy recovery.

PS several people have told me that it's best to go to the ER at St Joe's as St Mike's is the city's major trauma centre and is always extremely visit.

Nightmare. So hard.

Doesn't help you guys but that happened to me with my Dad once . He was writhing and in so much pain he started hallucinating as well. We were in ER unattended for around 8 hours . It really is heartbreaking and dreadful to see suffering like that.

Hopefully they now sort your husband soon as.

Sorry to hear that. Was it kidney stones? Not sure why but something about that description makes me think it was kidney stones.

Hope he's on the mend now.

I bought a house 2 months ago and settlement is due to take place on Thursday this week. It's a bank repossession, so I got it for a very good price. The house has been sitting vacant for nearly a year, and 2 months since I bought it. Today I emailed the selling agent to say that I would like a final inspection before settlement to ensure that nothing has been damaged/removed since I put the offer in. She emailed back to say that because it's a repo I don't get a final inspection! Um.... Legally I'm entitled to an inspection prior to handing over $330k, so I'm getting the inspection. Don't want to show up to let me in? That's ok, my bank doesn't have to deposit the funds into your account then,

Sod that for a game of soldiers. Why on earth did they not act sooner?

People.
Unkind people.
Whether family or friends or those you touch or who have touched you.
Unkind people. Who forget. Who are mean with unkind words or deeds.
For no good reason really other than they can and it does not matter that much to them as , perhaps, it is about them more than it is about you in a way - I suppose. I don't know why.

Anyway, Room 101 for the above.

What relevance has being a repo got to do with anything? She's an idiot. I hope It's got to be more than sensible to want to check out a property that's been empty for that amount of time.

Agree with you. It is far less effort and healthier to be kind, friendly, thoughtful and helpful rather than being nasty and thoughtless.

That's what I said. Who knows who's been in there in the last 9 weeks?

It's gallstones. So pretty much the same level.of pain
The problem is. He's had these attacks before and has a pretty high pain tolerance. So his vitals don't change much. They think he's drug seeking

True the ER. Was busy but I don't think the triage system was working. Other patients were going up to the desk and saying " for God's sake give him my place in line"

I feel sorry for ER doctors, the job must really screw you up if you are capable of being snotty to someone you've left in pain for 5 hours

Ouch.

Sometimes medical school seems to beat human feeling out of people.
