Paramedics are the unsung heroes of the medical field first to respond when someone's in crisis. Well not only does this paramedic provide the necessary care for a person down on their luck, they go above and beyond to keep their patient feeling safe.

Don't get between this paramedic and a person in need!


Thanks to reddit user CejusChrist for sharing this piece.

So, this happened last month, but I am finally getting a chance to type it out.

I work as an EMT in a decent sized city. We tend to run call-to-call, and get all sorts of calls. One night, we get called for a call coded as a Psych.

A gentleman had been having a bad run of luck, and was feeling depressed.

So my partner and I show up, and I begin to speak with the man. The gentleman begins to tell me about how he had been kicked out of his home, by his wife, for drug use. This caused him to feel depressed, and spiral into the world of homelessness and drugs.

He had a revelation earlier, and he wanted help, so he called us.

I move him into the back of my ambulance, and the guy begins to break down, crying because he feels hopeless, worthless, and he can't stop apologizing for wasting my time.

I am in the middle of trying to calm him down, and have a conversation with him while I take a blood pressure, and begin to get a little bit of demographic information, when I hear my partner yell from the front seat.

I look around, and in the back window, I see a hand, and an iPhone in the corner of the window. I begin to see red, as I realize what the guy behind my ambulance is doing.

Not only is he taking a picture of me, he is taking a picture of a man who is already feeling like he has hit rock bottom, and is sobbing in the back of my ambulance.

The man realizes as well that he is being photographed, and says something along the lines of "If I was them, I would be taking pictures of someone as useless as me as well."

This is when I have a stroke of genius.

Continue onto the next page to see what happens!

At my company, we run van-type ambulances. The rear doors open like book. The right side door opens first, allowing the left side to open afterwards. The handle is right next to where I was sitting, which was on the bench inside.

So I tell my patient to hold on a second.

I grab the handle, and kick the door open with all my strength, and hop out right afterwords.

The door flies into the guys hand, and his phone gets knocked 10 feet, landing on the road with a satisfying crack.

That can only be the sound of a screen breaking upon sidewalk or pavement.

I give a halfhearted apology stating that I didn't see him, and that I was trying to find my jump bag.

That's when I look back up at him.

Continue for to hear the ending of this unbelievable story!

The kid, who appeared to be early twenties, and drunk, was too dumbfounded to say anything.

I get back in the ambulance, and we begin to pull away. I look back, to see the kid pick up his phone, look at it, and throw it against the wall in what I assume was a post-screenbreaking act of rage.

Felt good man.

We commend you, reddit user CejusChrist, for standing up for your patient and doing the right thing!

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

Whose to say?

But they have it.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most people have friends they've been close to for most of their lives.

But at the same time, friends evolve, and everyone finds themselves losing touch with any number of people they at one point considered their friends over time.

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.
