August 5: Everything I Needed to Know I Learned in the Emergency Room

August 5, 2008

Yesterday, I had several important life learnings:

1. When you ride a motor bike, wear long pants and sneakers;

2. Making a right hand turn in traffic is difficult from the left lane;

3. If you're going to crash a motorbike, do it in front of the hospital;

4. don't argue when they want to put you in a wheelchair and take you to the emergency room;

5. Thai hospitals don't ask for insurance cards;

6. In Thai hospitals, it only costs $2.10 for emergency room care and medication;

7. When you walk out of the hospital and ride the bike home, thank God.
