Medics are met with a hand written note when they returned to their emergency ambulance having treated a patient
You can imagine our reaction when one of our followers sent us a picture of another note that had been left on their emergency ambulance whilst they treated a patient.
Being the ‘go to’ “news” outlet for members and fans of the emergency services, we are often the first to hear about such acts of derangement, foolishness and imbecility as leaving a note for an emergency ambulance crew regarding their parking.
Our message to the sort of individual who would write this kind of note, simply just does not seem to be getting across.
What potentially makes the situation worse, is that the twits who keep leaving these notes, MUST have read in the press about how foolish such a practice really is?
But then, come to think of it, whilst the civilian press will report on the strange phenomenon of bizarre people leaving notes on ambulances, rarely will they actually condemn the practice
But we will!
Each time we share a story about these unwanted, unwelcome and unnecessary notes, we are at pains to point out the following important message:
An emergency ambulance WILL NOT EVER spend time looking for a parking space, because someones life could be at risk. Its just not going to happen, so accept it!
If you are the sort of muttonhead who believes that they should look for a ‘suitable’ parking space BEFORE treating their patient, then you are an ignoramus simpleton.
There. We said it. Again.
We also spoke to one of the medics who found the note. They told us that:
“Getting to people who have immediately life threatening symptoms is of utmost priority, if it means blocking a drive or road then at least someone is helped.
We all go home crying after a certain job or call.
We are not there to be attacked for saving lives, to be shouted at or to be threatened with death threats.
Whether on the road or in the EOC [Emergency Operations Centre] we should be able to feel safe and to have the respect that we deserve.
We are also human”.
What a sad state of affairs it is, when a medic has to make a plea to the public to not be abused as they go about their life-saving work?
What has actually happened to the small section of the public who genuinely believe that their ‘right’ to drive around in their car, is MORE important than saving someones life?
The note that was left on the ambulance read:
“why has this vehicle been parked across my drive for over an hour? I appreciate that there may very occasionally be a need to park there in case of an emergency, but an hour?
There were at least 3 spaces an hour ago which would have not inconvenienced home owners.
If there is ever a repeat, please at least call in at the house to ask if it is convenient.
I still drive even at night, and I have friends who call.
I might also have had an emergency!”
We have a HUGE selection of personalised kit bags (with any of the ‘thin line emblems‘) and an equally huge selection of HEAVILY DISCOUNTED general purpose bags!
We would love to be able to speak to one of these individuals that keeps leaving these sort of notes on emergency ambulances.
Hell, we might even interview them for our YouTube Channel just to try and gain an understanding or maybe even an insight in their method of thinking.
The NUMPTY who wrote this note, really thinks that the EMERGENCY ambulance crew should have KNOCKED on their house in order to ask if it was ok to park their ambulance where they did BEFORE they went to treat the patient!?
What. The actual. F__k.
When we shared the story of someone who had left a note on a parked Metropolitan Police car that was situated outside of a Costa Coffee, the author of the note ended up contacting us via our Facebook page, Emergency Services Humour (the conversation got a bit ‘lively’ but it was shared in the last issue of our Digital Magazine).
This ‘encounter’ with the author of the now infamous ‘find my cat’ note gave us a glimpse into the mind of someone who would typically write this kind of drivel.
And what we found as we peered into their mind, was a sense of “I am more important than anything, or anyone else”. Which makes us think that ALL of the authors of these silly notes surely must all have this same misguided sentiment in common?
We cannot forget the case of Ms Kirsty Sharman, who was nicked for her threatening note.
We contacted her on Twitter, and it is safe to say that she could not have given two f__ks about the note she left, or indeed the effect it had on the crew who found it after they had treated her sick neighbours.
If you are reading this, and you, at some point, get blocked in by an ambulance as they try to save someones life, then just think that it could be you in the back of that ambulance fighting for your life.
ANYONE who thinks that an ambulance crew should look around for a parking space before treating their patient, brings shame upon the human race.
Why? Well, because this kind of selfish thinking is a big part of what is really wrong with the people of this planet.
Needless to say that, in our popular fortnightly satirical Digital Magazine (which anyone can subscribe to), we have a section that ‘awards’ people for being a c__k womble.
Guess what? The author of this note is getting just such an award in the next issue!
We have even managed to get hold of some stickers which show peoples’ willingness to ‘allow’ emergency ambulances to park across their drive:
If you wanted to grab one, and proudly display it in your window, then click here —> ( the purchase of these stickers is NOT COMPULSORY and ambulances will still park where they need to in order to get to their patients!)
