Mama Raise You Right

I’m sad to say one of the blogs I loved reading is not long online. It’s been pulled because something said some bad things about her and her family, so she pulled the blog all together. I enjoyed watching her kid grow and reading what they did during the week. It’s sad to see this go.

I hate when people can’t keep negative comments to theirselves, but I guess not every one was raised like I was. I’m all for correcting someone when they’re wrong, letting them know their behavior is unacceptable, but if someone is minding their own business, then just leave them alone.

I was ask today to be a guest post for a blog, agegapgal. I was completely shocked, I didn’t know anyone liked my writing enough to ask me to write for their blog. I took my time to get something together, which I hope will be ok. It will be posted March 14, so watch for it. And if you haven’t checked out her blog before, be sure you do, it has a lot of informational reading.

Other than that, it has been a very uneventful day of work. All is quiet, which is a good thing for our citizens. Tomorrow it’s off to a new class to teach and it’s always interesting to meet the new classes. It’s usually easy to spot the bad kids from day 1 and it’s pretty easy to tell which kids will make it in this field and which will not, but regardless, they all learn the same from me. I make sure each kid really knows their skills before they go out there and embarrass our school.

We did have a patient earlier this evening, I was impressed how many people moved for ourr lighs and sirens, that never happens! So we got to the patient quickly. When taking thee patient to the hospital we didn’t use the lights and sirens (not needed) and people were tailgating me, cutting me off…all kinds of stuff! In this town that is the dumbest thing you could ever do, I have direct connection to the police through my radio and my computer system. I can’t tell you how many people have gotten tickets because we don’t let you away with that stuff.

Reminder people…my truck has WAY more weight behind it than your little sports car! It takes a lot longer to get going and it takes a lot more to stop it! Tailgating is not going to make the truck move any quicker, I promise. And cutting me off just means it’s going to be a more uncomfortable ride for our patient in the back. If you were in the back you wouldn’t like it. Speaking of which…people always bitch that we didn’t get there fast enough to help them, but no one wants to pull over and yeild to our lights and sirens. Just remember, how would you feel if it was you or your family that need that ambulance, fire truck, or police officer?? Pull over! Let them through because someone is having an emergency and they want that truck just as badly as if you needed it.

  1. It never ceases to amaze me the stupidity of people when it comes to driving, especially around emergency vehicles. I’ve written a blogpost or 2 on just that issue (under Firefighters, Paramedics, Rescue Workers)
