I feel my own embarrassment all over again. One evening in the dead of winter I smelled smoke and saw a faint haze in our hall way.
I called 911 ordered the Hubby out of the house, took the essentials and our pets and ran to our neighbors.
Within 5 min. the Fire Engines where here.
They did a perfect job, all that had happened was our furnace had died, leaving a trail of smoke. I was still so ashamed to have disturbed them that I cried. Yes
What I want to say is we are not all like the adventure "Gold-diggers"

By comparison, what this woman did would be like you calling the fire department because you knicked yourself with a lit cigarette.

Yeah, it's the cost of the socio-economic system now. Some people are forced to call 911. I've heard stories of that being people's only choice. Since most jobs offer limited oppuritinites and insurance plans.

Lobo, are you required to take people? What I mean is, you felt that it was an abuse to take this person, could you have refused?
Also, you said its $400 dollars for the ambulance, will she be billed it?
