3am one night i go into a convenience store to take care of the munchies. included in my change was a one dollar coin. "oh, sacagawea" i said. the blank stare i got from the clerk said he had no idea what i was saying. "sacagawea, sacagawea" i said, pointing at the dollar coin. "ok, sir, sack a wee uh" he said, holding his hands up and noting he was all alone with this crazy talking guy in the store in the middle of the night. being tired and in an advanced case of the munchies i just went with it - "woo woo woo! sacagawea sacagawea!" i yelled, running out of the store. anyway, my question is, how should i go about getting my money back for the stuff i left on the counter?

I had a somewhat experience once. I was in a Target buying a bottle of water with a Susan B. Anthony dollar. The cashier said that they don't accept those. "Sure you do," I said, "It's a one dollar coin."

She examined the coin closely and then asked, "How much is it worth?"

"A dollar," I said as slowly as humanly possible.

"I'll have to ask my manager."

absolutely nothing surprises me anymore. I am not working on a unit now, but rather in our call center.. where our company requires that you be at least an emt-b with being an emt-p prefered. ok with that said, part of my job is to take calls from field medics and create their permanent medical record of the call.. then we code it to send to the ins/billing people..
So i get a medic on the phone and ask the incident number, patient, demographic info, then start on the patient.. first thing, what kind of call? medical or trauma
then chief complaint, then such and such.. etc etc
last night the medic had a call for an ambulance for constipation.. yes people call an ambulance for that much to our chagrin..ok, so the medic smells this foul smell and realizes that the patient has bowel incontinence and feces in the wheelchair( no not a parapalegic patient.. she just had paresis) now, she then says" i have taken 6 stool softeners in the last 24 hours and only the watery stuff comes out, the hard stuff wont come out".. or the girl the night before whose water had broken.. medic asked how far along she was , patient stated she wasnt pregnant.. asked if sexually active she said, well he doesnt ejacualate in me( think slang though) medic says when did you have your last menstrual period.. patient states i dont know.. but i cant be pregnant.. medic says ok.. but your water broke and you are having contractions.. well the patient says it must be the second coming of jesus because i havent had sex he hasnt ejaculated in me... medic bites fingers to keep from laughing.. this patient did not have a mental defect.. just young.. 17..

nothing would surprise me anymore.. and these are just two weird calls from the last 2 days

people say and do the strangest things and reality, real reality, not tv reality is truely stranger than fiction

my sacagawea story was true up to the 'woo woo' part. i didn't listen to the voice in my head telling me to go along with the guy thinking i was crazy. i thought about trying to explain what 'sacagawea' meant, but sometimes the more you try to explain something the crazier you sound.

like time i was in the '3 way convenience mart'(google it!) owned by some middle eastern guys - nice guys. one day i tried explaining to them what a '3 way' was...these two guys glanced at each other with a look of horror and yelled at me to get out of their store and never come back.

Sacagawea was the Shoshone Indian who guided Lewis and Clark on their westward journey 200 years ago. Starting in 2000, her likeness was put on the US dollar coin, which has not been circulating much in most parts. Google or Wiki her for more information.

And I would be glad to take you on at least a partial tour of the Lewis & Clark trail. I try to re-enact it every year except instead of canoes, we have rubber rafts and instead of buckskin, we wear swim suits, and instead of provisions we have floating coolers full of beverages that tie on to the rubber rafts and float along with us. Other than that, its pretty much the same.

The book was one of my grandfather's favorites, as passage from it was read at his funeral. He was a history buff, both fiction and more importantly non-fiction. He wrote a small document( like 90 pages) on the history of veterinary medicine in Louisiana. He was one of the first two vets here. Anyway, i guess all I am saying is, she holds a special place, the books sits prominently on my book shelf. It sits among several books about the Lewis and Clark trail...

I thought it was hilarious because i knew what it meant instantly
