Am I the only good Samaritan in this God forsaken but fundamentally Christian country? How can people simply walk on by when they see their fellow citizen, or more pertinently, a fellow human being, collapsed on the pavement and choking on his own vomit?
I put him in the recovery position and scooped vomit from his mouth but would any fucker help me? No. The emergency services cannot speak a word of English. It is admittedly my fault for not knowing enough Korean. Why do I have to scream at passers by saying ‘Fucking help me and call an ambulance’?
Thank God for the woman who stopped and translated for me. She shared my disgust of her fellow citizens. Of course, those Christians who pay hefty dues to their freaky churches in return for social advancement can rest happy in the knowledge that they will go straight to Heaven. I do hope so. M
