Russia: A Bad Place To Fall Down While Drunk

We went over to a colleague’s house for dinner the other night and she apologized that she had no rice, she hadn’t had time to go out shopping yet because when she came home from work one of her neighbors had been lying unconscious in a puddle of blood in the hallway.

He was very drunk, and had fallen and hit his head –she called the paramedics.

They came and kicked him and slapped him until he woke up, then bandaged the wound on his head, then dragged him into his apartment and tossed him on the bed and left.

She was a little horrified by such rough treatment but I said, “Well, at least they didn’t steal anything.”
