After a note was left on a Metropolitan Police car that was parked outside of a Costa Coffee in London, the notes’ Author contacted us in order to explain their actions!
It was only last week that an image of a note that was left on a Police car parked outside of a Costa Coffee in London was sent into our team.
The Police Officers concerned had quickly nipped into Costa in order to grab a quick drink.
This latest note is just one of many such notes which, for reasons that defy any sense of decency or common sense, have been left on Emergency vehicles up-and-down the country.
Most of the unfriendly ‘notes’ have found their way onto the windscreens of ambulances, after their crews have had to park their emergency vehicles in as short-a-time as possible before rushing to help a patient in need.
But the life-saving work of the emergency services seems to be completely overlooked and often ignored by a very small, yet very vocal, part of our society.
It wasn’t that long ago that a character by the name of ‘Kirsty Sharman’ left a threatening note on the windscreen of an ambulance whilst its crew were treating her elderly neighbour – a neighbour who, by all accounts, Ms Sharman had decided to wage war upon.
Ms Sharman was not only arrested and later charged for her threatening note, but she was also kicked out of the council house she inhabited whilst unleashing a torrent of abuse on her neighbours.
But it would seem that, despite all of the publicity being pushed by the ONLY dedicated ‘news’ resource for members of the emergency services and their supporters (ourselves) the ridiculous habit seems to be increasing in frequency rather than decreasing!
So when a ‘source’ contacted us anonymously via our contact us page on our main website with a photo of a note that had been left on their response vehicle as they nipped into a Costa for a quick shot of caffeine, we were not that surprised.
What did surprise us, however, was what was actually written on the note!
Most of the time, the offending ‘notes’ contain either unwanted and unwelcome ‘instructions’ in relation to how the author feels emergency services vehicles should be parked.
Or they contain belligerent nonsense that only a numpty can relate to.
As you can see from the comment above that was left on our Facebook page, most people posted messages of support for the Police and acknowledged their right to have a break as-and-when circumstances allow.
Some of the comments left about the author were far less ‘friendly’.
Many people who were understandably hacked off with the sentiment behind the authors rationale for leaving the note in the first place, shared their obvious frustration in the comments section on the original post that we shared on our Facebook page, Emergency Services Humour.
Well, it turns out that, of the 10 million-or-so people we reach during a typical month, one of these 10 million people was the actual person who had left the note on the Police car.
They contacted us after they read the hundreds of comments which had been indirectly left for them in response to their message of disapproval for London’s finest.
The author of the note, who wished to remain anonymous, attempted to try and explain their reason to us for leaving the note in the first place.
We asked the ‘note writer’ if we could share their comments in this article, but they declined…
However, they did give us permission to share their explanation (which turned into a question and answer session between the ‘note leaver’ and ourselves) in the next issue of our subscriber only eMagazine, S__ts & Giggles on the condition that we would not reveal their identify (as if we would…)
We have spent many minutes typing up the Instant Messaging conversation that we had with the note-leaver, and will share the convo in tomorrow’s issue of S__ts & Giggles.
It makes for an ‘interesting’ read and (sort of) gives a glimpse into the mind and workings therein of the sort of ‘individual’ that leaves this kind of note on an emergency vehicle.
We believe that a ‘phantom note leaver’ coming forward is actually a bit of a first.
Most of the time, the people who leave these sort of notes quickly disappear into the shadows having mustered the vast amounts of ‘bravery’ required in order to affix their thoughts onto the windscreen of an emergency vehicle.
