Dr. Orthochick: Hit and run

My co-resident was on call last night and around 2AM he picked up a patient who had attempted to run her husband over in her car. She hit him but didn't kill him and he got up out of the middle of the road and ran away. Once she saw he was still alive, she became so angry that she decided to kill herself to spite him. She drove into a tree, which didn't kill her but she did wind up breaking her femur.

See, this is why 18 year olds shouldn't get married.


  1. I think you should have to be 30 before you can even apply for a marriage license.

  2. The same goes for having kids. I know there would be no way to operationalize this, but there really should be some sort of application process for allowing people to bring another human being into the world.
