The parable of the drug addict*

A dropout drug addict calls 911 and demands narcotics. He says rude, ridiculous things and insults the crew. The crew ignores him and tells him to sit quietly on the gurney. He is brought to the ED, where he demands, again, narcotics. He says rude, ridiculous things and insults the staff. The staff ignores him and tells him to sit quietly in the waiting room. Not getting the attention he seeks, he slinks off into the night.

A dropout drug addict who hosts a national media program says rude, ridiculous things and insults people he disagrees with. No one reminds him that he’s a drug addict and tells him that people don’t care when drug addicts say ridiculous things and insult people.

*Lesson yet to be learned

One thought on “The parable of the drug addict*”

  1. The worst part is that millions look up to this addict, and think he is someone who should be worshipped, adored, and emulated. It’s not that that people “don’t care” when he says these things, it’s how many people agree with him, how many think he is “speaking the truth” to the masses.
