There are few real emergencies in life

There are few real emergencies in life - being diagnosed with a life-threatening condition, being in an accident.

Others masquerade as emergencies when in fact, they probably do not even register a bleep in the emergency radar - a work deadline that should've been met had it been done on time, unless you work in a hospital. Catching a train. A missed train isn't an emergency, unless you're headed to an emergency situation.

A real emergency lets you drop everything at the drop of a hat. Other commitments take a backseat.

May you know the difference between a real emergency and an imagined one.
