On Fire

 

Walking to the train station, I spotted a trash bin on fire. My first response was to call 911.

Calling 911 meant giving a mass of information and while they asked me every question they could think of, some young guys walked into the corner store and demanded some water to put the fire out….why didn’t I just do that?
