What would You Do?

Today's scenario.

You're at work.  Pretend you work in a trendy boutique that not many people frequent.  (Despite that said trendy boutique is located in prime mall real estate.)  Someone comes running in yelling, "Call 911!"  The only customer in the store at the time happens to be a medical professional.  That person goes running out to handle the situation.

What is your reaction?  What do you do?

What about your MC?


  1. If I had my cell on me, I would call 911. Otherwise, I would stay away from the situation so as not to add confusion. Too many cooks in the kitchen and all that.

    Applying this to fantasy? Nakine probably caused the emergency in the first place... She'd act surprised, but not helpful. Eloy would be at the person's side doing some healing.

  2. If it were me, I'd probably lift the phone and ask what message I could relay to the police.

    If it were my MC, she'd probably back up and wait for someone else to handle the situation. Of course, she'd never work at a trendy boutique unless she had absolutely no other choice.

    Cool question.

  3. Hmm, I'd probably ask what was going on as I dialed the phone. My MC would do the same...then she'd probably try and see what was going on from the doorway of the shop, trying to stay as inconspicuous as possible.

  4. Thanks for sharing everyone! It's so fun to get to know everyone.

  5. I would ask what the situation is then dial 911. My MC would probably do the same as me but run to see what was going on while on the phone with 911 (she would call on her cell).
    Good question.

  6. I would call 911 from my cell phone, however I can't guarantee how the conversation would go because I might be in complete panic mode!!!

    Oh as for my character, she has more confidence than I do and would try and handle the situation herself instructing someone else to call the medics!

    I gave you an award!!! Come check it out here!
