Humour me

I learnt the hard way that humour, while fine with most patients to try and put them at ease, is not to be used with young patients who are drunk or high or with psychiatric patients. While trying to make light of the situation involving a 22 yo female who was tripping on e, her friend took complete offence and let me know about it saying she didnt find it amusing that I was making fun of the situation. Actually I was outside trying to gather info while my two colleagues were attending to her friend in the ambulance. Ended up telling the friend thats what happens when you accepts unknown pills from unknown people.
