    Man, in the past 2 weeks, we've had 2 ambulances struck by suspected drunk drivers. One AMR, and a City&County EMS unit. Both ambulances were transporting patients at the time. AMR was transporting Non-Emergency when the car ran a red light, and the C&C EMS unit was transporting Emergency mode...

    Dam, they wanna raise my rent next month to $1,600/mo (granted its $1,500 right now so it's not a huge increase but still!) 🤬 Maybe I should Google "How to get a condo"...

    Lol, we're capped, can only work 36 hours straight, and then have a minimum 8 hours off before can work again. Supposedly, at least at certain stations, they've now authorized OT funds to "hire" someone on OT to staff that company at 5 guys, vs 4. (5 is our official staffing level per...

    Yeah I'm a backseater lol, but sometimes the Engineers are out on vacation or whatever (or if the Capt is out, the Engineer bumps up and so does a FF). Sometimes you'll get an Overtime Capt or Engineer in in those cases, but not always. Our Engineer actually took like 5-6 hours vacation just...

    Great, just great... tryna do laundry night before work, hear it thumping, go to investigate... and all the soapy water is pooling across the floor.... -_- Guess this is my payback for splurging on stuff that's not absolutely essential 😞, and of course new washer/dryers top a thousand bucks...

    Just paid $150 for the 3 year Disney Plus subscription (technically $147.31 with tax, works out to roughly $4.09/mo). Or pay for 2 years normal price, get the third year free. Either way it's a bit of a steep upfront cost, but now also I dont hafta pay for the subscription again till 2022 lol...

    When you walk into Costco telling yourself you're only gonna buy a few things, next thing I knew, the TV I had wanted was on sale (4k 55") so it magically found itself in my cart....

    Heart ripped out of body by deceleration/ crash

    Years and years ago, on one of those Liveleak type sites, I did see footage a bystander took in the aftermath of a bicycle vs auto (may have been motorcycle vs auto, I forget), that showed the guys heart out by itself on the pavement still twitching. I suppose it could have been faked, it's...

    Well, if you look closely, you'll see it's more than just a leopard... It was right on the wall on the path from the elevator to my cabin, seeing it multiple times a day, and I didn't notice it till like day 2 lol

    How should one dress for an interview?

    One of my internet pet peeves is after being unable to find a clear or straight answer on Google, going to a forum and then the only answer being "Go to Google"... Or when you go to Google, and someone posted a question on a forum somewhere 5 years ago asking the exact same question you have...
