Help! (I Need Somebody, Help, Not Just Anybody….)
I’m walking onto the beach in front of our house and a lifeguard is planting a strange flag.
“What does that signify?” I ask.
She says, “This is the boundary for safe swimming where we are attentive and react if needed.”
“Do you mean that if I’m a few yards or more to the left and I get into trouble, you won’t save me?”
“I’m not legally obligated to do anything in that case. But it is at my discretion.”
“Can I get you some coffee, maybe a donut?”
