On the whole, people are just nuts. I have worked with the public for many years and this is true more often than not. I have a dying patient, comatose now, and the family is grieving. Now I know everyone gets to grieve in their own way but sometimes their way is crazy. This was crazy on a whole different level. The mom is repeatedly kissing the woman's lips despite the breathing tube and NG tube and the stench of old mucus, the brother sneaks in alcohol and gets so drink off his ass he had to be escorted out by security, the step mom is praising Jesus with increasing volume over and over and over, and the husband is repeatedly kissing his wife's TOES- yes her Toes! while loudly proclaiming he will not apologize for it.
Only the Dad sits in the corner quietly, tears in his eyes, looking miserable and broken. I think his sorrow is for the daugher he is losing, but then again, it might also be for the life he has lived with these nutsos.
