    Paragod syndrome much? Remember your roots is all I'm going to say. As a paramedic I wouldn't want to work dual medic with you based solely upon this post.

    You didn't get stuck with an EMT.

    Your EMT got stuck with a paragod.

    I worked with an EMT a few days ago. Bright kid. Has his B.S. in biology and is likely lining himself up for a promising career as a PA-C.

    As @medichopeful and others have mentioned, don’t be a tool. You’re “just” a medic.

    They over complicate things or you just ***** too much?

    I don't think I speak for myself when I say we have probably all had at least one B partner who when they spoke, we listened....whether it be suggestions, concerns, disagreements, etc. I know my first partner when I was a new medic was a huge help in me growing as medic. Maybe check the ego a little bit, work place reputations are hard to build and easy to break....

    Please go apply for a job at Amazon or something. Get out of EMS, we don't need you.

    I’d have left you standing in the street with an attitude like yours.

    oddly enough, they might even pay better than some EMS agencies... my former agency had 2 guys who had been with us for a few years accept full time positions with them.

    Does the fire department spray water on the ground for you to walk on?

    I always ask the firefighters to spray down the LZ and bring the babes by for when I land.
