had another guy pull up, screeching, to the er entrance, runs in screaming "MY HOMEBOY'S BEEN SHOT! OH MY GOD, MY HOMEBOY" we go running out the door, where, in fact, a guy is laying in the back seat holding onto his thigh and swearing up a blue streak. The original guy starts yelling "OH...MY DOG.. MY DOG!!!" whereupon the doc and I both start looking for the poor dog that has also been shot.....come to find out "my dog" is just another word for "my homeboy" which is just another word for "member of the same useless gang".....sure wish we could've saved the dog. The guy ended up with a shattered femur!! Now everytime I work with this particular doc, I greet him with "MY DOG!" and we flash gang signs.
