Oy...I signed up as available to work on our scheduling software (we use Telestaff). The day I signed up for, I signed up as available for 24hr shift only. There was an opening that day on one of the 24 hour shifts I wanted to work, no one else had signed up at all....yet I log in today and see they assigned me to a 12 hour shift and put someone else on the 24 hour shift....and I'm still the only one signed up on any of the pick lists for shifts -_-

Telestaff is a fickle mistress...Her needs can't always be understood by her lowly minions.

Working at the department's slooooooowest station. I'm so far out in the sticks there is no cell phone coverage and you have to prop the radio up on the window sill or you can't hear dispatch. 99% possibility of all night sleeping.

Dang, I've worked 5 12 hour shifts in the last 6 days and am exhausted, so of course someone is calling to ask me to work their 24 hour shift tomorrow because they got hired by an FD and the first day is tomorrow and of course I happen to be the only one on said pick list for tomorrow having signed up a week or so ago (before I got 3 extra days added).

I know I know, the exact opposite of what I was bemoaning earlier today lol

Sounds like our substation, where I have not run a call past 10pm in over five months and there have been zero calls in its response area in the last five days.

Soon summer comes and that all changes, but until then, no thanks. The heat is also out in the bedrooms which is kind of unfortunate.

You serious? A slow shift and cool bedroom are two of my favorite things.

Well, last night was our class final for fire I. I passed!!!!! It has been such a long road, starting in August will be the beginning of Fire II. We have live burn on Saturday and our state exam on the 15th! I cannot wait.

I like to freeze the station out, but I woke up today and the bedroom was 48 degrees.

Thank god for remote control space heaters. Alarm goes off and I crank that baby and go back to bed until I can stand getting up.

Partner is snoring so loud the windows are shaking. Considering an airway adjunct.

Now I remember why I don't miss night shifts.

Nasal intubation?

My old partner had that problem. I was forced to beat him with a mop once to get him up for a call, I swear his own snoring drowned out the radio.

Haha. That reminds me of when I had to throw boxes of gloves through the pass through to get my partner to wake up in the patient compartment.
