And this is one of the reasons as to why we keep sharing the stories about silly notes being left on emergency vehicles
Most people will know by now, about the strange phenomenon of belligerent and often illiterate individuals, with nothing better to do with their time, leaving abusive notes on emergency vehicles which have DARED to not spend 15 minutes looking for a parking space before saving someones life.
Most of the ‘victims’ of this absurdity have been emergency ambulances which have DARED to park adjacent to someones drive, or outside someones house, as they battle to save a patients life.
Many of these notes have also been covered by the national press, including ourselves, and have even led to the arrest of one such ‘note leaver’ after she threatened an ambulance crew who were treating her elderly neighbour.
(the profanities, for the purpose of this advert, have been blurred out. The blurring is not on the actual mugs)
There was, of course, the story of the handwritten note, two pages long, written by a numpty who ‘demanded’ to know why an emergency ambulance had been parked next to their drive for ‘over an hour’.
And then there was the ‘short’ note that had been left for another emergency ambulance crew, advising them that their call was ‘no emergency‘! Obviously written by another graduate from the College of Professional Bystanders.
Or how about the note that was left on a Metropolitan Police car, that was parked outside of a Costa Coffee as its crew grabbed a quick drink, demanding that the Officers should be out looking for the authors missing moggy.
And, of course, the Fire Service have not been immune from idiots leaving notes on their vehicles, albeit this note was in the form of a parking ticket!

You can therefore imagine our delight, when one of our 236,000 followers sent us a picture of a note that had been left on their emergency ambulance.
When we first saw the message preview via our Facebook messenger, we assumed that another buffoon had left yet another abusive note on the windscreen of an emergency ambulance.
But, to our surprise and pleasure, this note leaver, who had clearly seen some of our articles & posts which we have written about this bizarre practice, left words of encouragement for the crew of the emergency ambulance rather than words of abuse.
This has, for now at least, restored our faith in the great British public, and just goes to affirm that for every buffoon, there are at least several decent people out there who understand that the emergency services should not be expected to have to find a parking space BEFORE attending to the emergency call to which they have been assigned.
And whilst we are fairly sure that notes of the abusive variety will continue to pop up every now-and-again, we reckon that thanks to, in part, our campaign, the frequency with which these notes appear will (maybe) start to decrease.
If not, then you can be rest-assured that our team of former emergency services ‘correspondents’ will let everyone know via our dedicated ‘Emergency Services News & Stories’ website.

We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
