The Seven (deadly sins) Entitlements
It slowed down a little bit last night in the ED, at least in terms of the "real Emergencies". There was still the late night cohort of the STDS, low back pain, you know, the usual. At the window was a man in his early thirties screeming at the triage nurse that he was disabled and how dare those others go back before him. I dont know why but somehow all the protestors who are in Wall Street popped into my mind. This guy is screaming that he deserves and is entitled to things because of his (deadly sins). He is envious of other going before him, he is drunk and morbidly obese, he is definately full of wrath, turns out he had a STD. Watching the Wall Street protestors, it seems almost the same thing. They are full of wrath, they dont want to work for things, rather they want it given to them, their gluttony is that they all have laptops and iphones, they want it all!, they are envious of those who have achieved, their pride is that they believe that they are entitled to what they lust after.
