Here be Idiots
I hope this is not the beginning of making use of parked ambulances to demonstrate just how stupid you are.
Paramedic Simon Wong of the West Midlands Ambulance Service parked on a double yellow line to answer a 999 call. Naturally he left the lights flashing and the doors open so that if necessary the patient could be stretchered into the ambulance as quickly as possible.
The patient did need to go to hospital and on returning to the ambulance to get a stretcher some dickhead had parked so close that the crew could not get the stretcher off or on.
Simon said that helpful local residents found the owner, who then moved their car back a few feet to allow the crew to get the patient into the ambulance. Apparently, the driver didn’t understand what the problem was and said they were allowed to park there anyway as they had a disabled relative.
The story that really annoyed me this week was the idiot who left this note on a parked ambulance.
It reads “If this van is for anyone but No.14 then you have no right to park here. I couldn’t give a shit if the whole street collapses. Now move your van from outside my house.”
The crew were attending a woman next door who was subsequently taken to hospital. While the patient was being put into the ambulance the note writer shouted abuse from the doorway.
Apparently, the idiot doesn’t even own a car!
Paramedics and other emergency services are very much appreciated by 99.99% of the population, the remainder need a check-up from the neck up.
