In a sure sign of just how low people can REALLY be, a vile note is left on an ambulance as a ‘gift for its crew’
Sunday 29th July | by Cop(ex) | @ES_Humour
Just when you thought that the ridiculous habit of people leaving notes on emergency vehicles had stopped, then perhaps one of the most offensive notes we have certainly heard of finds its way onto an emergency vehicle.
A post on social media gave more details of the circumstances.
In a heart-felt message, the person who shared the details of the circumstances surrounding the note said:
“This lovely note was found placed on the front of my colleagues ambulance at 5am on a Sunday morning. Edited so no offence is caused.
“My first thought was how atrocious the grammar is. Sort that out before you decide to insult hard working, exhausted emergency workers.
“How dare you leave such a disgusting note.
“After my experience yesterday in Maidstone town centre, promoting the job and speaking to hundreds of people, whilst wearing my uniform with pride, the amount of people that came up to me to THANK US ALL FOR THE AMAZING WORK THAT WE DO was overwhelming.
“It has made me realise that the majority of the public are very grateful for what we do.
“But it’s the morons that leave us little gifts like this that has a massive impact on us.
“We are doing our job under the toughest conditions at the moment.
“We are understaffed.

“We have too many calls for the amount of resources.
“Every job we attend we are having to say sorry for the delay.
“We are working 8+ hrs before we even get a sniff of a break.
“12hr shifts are turning into 13+ hr shifts as we are late off every day.
“We have to deal with calls that are not an accident and certainly not an emergency, but people are unable to cope with simple, minor ailments, think it’s their right to call an ambulance instead of finding alternative transport and people still believe they will be seen quicker at hospital if they roll up in ambulance.
“THIS IS NOT A JUSTIFIABLE REASON TO CALL AN AMBULANCE.
“Proper sick people are left waiting for ambulances.
“Irreversible damage is being caused to people suffering from heart attacks and strokes due to the delays from treatment.
“People are being left in immense pain from broken bones due to the wait for an ambulance.
“Elderly people are being left on the floor for hours, because it’s not life threatening they are not at the top of the list.
“But the impact on these people for spending so long on the floor is horrendous.
“I ask you, members of the public, to please think before you call 999.
“Do you honestly need an ambulance.
“To those that want to leave nasty notes, we are human.
“We are doing our best.
“One day you may need us too. Just be kind to others.
“With love from an exhausted emergency services worker who truly loves her job. Xx
