It's WTF Friday!!!

There's just never a dull moment around here. It's WTF Friday!!!

So, I went to Walmart with the girls. I always park near the cart return because it's way easier than trying to return the cart a half a mile away when I've already packed the babies into the car. So, I put the babies in the car, I put the stuff in the car, and I returned the cart. This is what I saw:


Yes, Virginia. That is a drunk man, passed out in a cart.

I looked at the nearest person, and she looked at me and shrugged. She said that a black truck had pulled up, the man driving had dumped the guy into the cart, and the truck took off. She said, "I'm pretty sure he's still alive."

I'm pretty sure he's still alive???

Then the manager came out and I volunteered to call 911, and she nodded, so I did. The cart guys were totally freaking out. While I was on hold with 911 I went to the car and got my camera (of course) so that I could share this experience with all of you. At first, people looked at me like I was high. Then I said, "What? I have a blog!" and then they all took their camera phones out and started taking pictures.


So, then the fire department showed up, and even one of the firemen took out his camera phone and took a picture (ha ha!). They rubbed on his sternum until he woke up.

Then, without much fanfare, they dumped the cart out on its side and the guy walked himself to the ambulance. I was really surprised that he could walk.

It was all very random and surreal. I was really glad that the guy wasn't dead, because this story wouldn't be quite as funny if he had been. But, seriously, what kind of bad friend dumps your drunk ass in a cart at Walmart and takes off? And you thought that you were having a bad day!

That is hilarious. Did anyone think to call the POLICE? Just an idea.

I just called 911 and told them what was going on, and let them decide who they wanted to send. I figured it would be either the ambulance or the cops. I was a little surprised to see the fire department. I guess they're EMTs, too, though.

Oh well. He looks comfortable.
