It’s been a while since a note intended for the emergency services has surfaced and we had even started to think that perhaps these notes were a thing of the past.
After all, every time one of the obnoxious individuals responsible for these notes takes pen to paper, the backlash from not only the emergency services but from the general public helps to show just how foolish these note-leavers are.
But perhaps we were just being a bit too optimistic.
Yet another rude note has been left for an emergency ambulance crew.
This time, the note had been left for a ambulance crew working for North West Ambulance Service.
Owing to the fact that the ‘individual’ who write it clearly cannot write properly, it has been quite hard to decipher some of the belligerent words which he/she has used.
However, we read it as:
“Thanks for blocking me in ar_ehole.
“Just took me 20 minutes to try and shunt out of drive along pavement.
“whole road empty and block driveway.
“Your [sic] an ar_ehole and Im going to be late for work thanks to you d_ckhead”.
We have found, when writing about the individuals who leave these messages, that the authors tend to be fairly devoid of any intelligence.
In this case, the author seems not to understand the difference between “your” and “you’re”
We mention this only because it would seem that most people who have been endowed with intelligence and common sense, would not expect an emergency ambulance crew to spend their valuable time parking when responding to an emergency.
Yes the road was clear, but so what? How does the author know that the road was clear when the ambulance turned up?
When you are responding to an emergency call, the last thing on your mind is worrying about where you are going to park your vehicle.
Thankfully, 99% of decent minded people realise and understand this.
But there is still a small percentage of people out there who think that their right to move along in their car is more important than someones life.
With attitudes like this, then there’s no wonder that we find ourselves in such a mess.
Did the individual who left the note perhaps not think to knock at the address where the ambulance crew were?
They MIGHT have been able to move the ambulance, assuming of course that the patient they were treating had stabilised.
And if there was no answer, then it’s probably fairly obvious that someone is potentially in a bad way and therefore the individual who left this note should just be happy that he/she wasn’t the one needing medical attention!
