Glad the guy was OK but he should still get that checked out. One day going into my gym an elderly man cominjg out collapsed in the parking lot. I stayed with him and on the phone with 911 until the ambulance came but I found out later he died on route to the hospital.
When I was working at a McD's in the Watts district of LA I found out our store had a silent alarm connected directly to the local PD when some fully decked out SWAT guys complete with machine guns came waltzing into the store. Turns out I had accidentally leaned against the silent alarm button no one had told me existed and the SWAT team had had the store surrounded for ten or fifteen minutes before determining that there was no hostage situation.
In the five months I worked there the place was robbed three times, once at gunpoint.
You'll find a slight squeeze on the hooter an excellent safety precaution, Miss Scrumptious.
