There is always something heroic to get up from a difficult situation.
But you can have a thousand people around, and nobody will lend you a hand to help you out. Not at all. It is quite the other way around.
People will look on the other side and pretend they did not notice you lying on the floor and dying.
Remember one thing, though: when you get better (if you get better), those same people will be here to cheer with you and tell you how proud they are that you made it.
Moral of the story: do not wait for them to open a beer. You do not need anyone to have a drink.
