The average child gets 9-12 colds a year; that calls for chicken soup, some TLC, OTC (over the counter) Benadryl and extra nap-times.
It does NOT call for EMS and clogging up a pediatric ER with your snuffy nosed kids, leading to 2-3 hr waits - as you grow ever more pissy and whiny about how long you've been sitting there and how if you were a different color, nationality, religion, ethnic group, etc you'd have been seen faster.
Oh, and by the way - if you call EMS to bring you to the ER, make sure you have a plan for how you're going to get your sorry ass home.
Contrary to your jacked up sense of importance, we OWE you neither a ride nor a free meal!
We owe you the best, most thorough medical care we can provide - and, luckily for you, we offer that everyday- 24/7/365- to both nice people and people who are a pain in the ass.
But don't push your luck - y'all are getting on our last nerve!
