(1).  A term used by EMS and Fire Personnel to describe a patient that waits until 3AM to call for an ambulence for their stubbed toe or sore shoulder.

 

“Guys, it looks like we have a Priority 3 here.  This guy is complaining of severe pain in the hallux region of his foot and he may have a sprain or strain to the small interphalangeal joints.  This is gonna be a long night…oh, hey look, a waffle house!”

 

Props to John H. for the submission.
