Been kicked off bus for fare dodging, need an ambulance to take me home (then the great comment of...I'm hoping to stay in this country legally)
Need to go to the hospital to collect my x-rays....from a broken leg 2 years ago
I'll get my abortion quicker if I go into casualty by ambulance.
I'm being chased by purple elephants, run out of munchies, give me a lift to the garage.
My friends won't let me into the piss up at their house.
The list goes....
I don't mind missing lunch/getting home late if its a proper job or some old and bold fallen over. But as they say, sympathy comes between shit and syphallis in the dictionary.
