1. It is not the policy of this ambulance service to "clear the room" when responding to a frequent flyer shortness of breath patient. So give the flashbang grenades back to the SWAT team and get on with your job.
2. The rule against forming a union at this service also apply to forming a guild hall.
3. Not allowed to reenact scenes from Monty Python's Life of Brian on scene.
4. My job description does not include the charge to "winnow out the weak". With that caveat, high explosives need not be included in the jump kit.
5. Fishnet stockings are not to be worn while on duty, even if they are not visible under my pants.
6. Not allowed to frighten livestock by "mooing" at them through the PA mike on the ambulance
7. Not allowed the Grim Reaper outfit while on duty (not even on Halloween). Or the Easter Bunny costume, or the Cupid suit, etc.
8. We do not sell advertising space on the ambulance, our uniforms or on the jump bags. We also can not drag advertising banners behind the ambulance. And yes you have to give back the money.
9. It is not the role of the service's public information officer to tell obscene jokes in front of the press. This is why you are no longer the PIO.
10. Not allowed to diagnose psychological problems and "shallow gene pool"is not listed in the DSM-IV anyhow. Ditto for "too stupid to f---ing live"
11. "I was bored" is not an excuse for anything done in the crew quarters with a bullhorn, a goat and a storm whistle.
12. Not allowed to continue to use the Organ Procurement Organization cooler to store my lunch.
13. It is possible to consume too much coffee before going on a call.

15. Must leave the noble art of dentistry to professionals
16. Yes, we are professionals, but not that kind of professional.
17. About the cattle prod.....get rid of it NOW.
18. It is wrong to require the rookie to serve as a test subject when CCSD Deputy Best wants to try out his new super-potent pepper foam.

23. Must not prove the medical director or EMS supervisor wrong when they say "you wouldn't dare!?".
24. Must not dip the ensign when the EMS supervisor or medical director drives by.
25. The proper response to a board of inquiry is not "But 'treason' is such a harsh word."
26. It is wrong to point out that the neighboring district's black uniforms with a red patch on the left arm are inappropriate for various historical reasons given the fact that there's a synagogue next to their station. Especially must not point this out to the press.
27. The "Buddy Christ" statue (http://store.yahoo.com/jsbstash/budchrisdass1.html) is to be removed from the dash of the ambulance immediately.
28. Station 6 can not secede from the rest of the district.
29. There is no such thing as "The 2x4 of Immunity" and I should stop swinging it at drunk patients who have repeatedly had the sh-t beat out of them in order to attempt to render them immune to future trauma.
30. It is wrong to willfully exacerbate the fears of my patients.
31. Must stop chanting "Patients are the enemy..I must eliminate my enemy!" while listening to "Conflict" by Disturbed at a volume that would deafen the guys from Deep Purple.
32. The proper way to perform a dopamine calculation does not involve, in any way shape or form, knowing the airspeed velocity of a sparrow, either laden or unladen.
33. I am not allowed to exacerbate my supervisor's feeling of nameless dread.
34. I am not allowed to pull up behind a parked semi while my partner is sleeping in the passenger seat of the ambulance, lay on the horn and scream "LOOK OUT!!!!!!!!!"
35. Not allowed to refer to the proctologist as "that a--hole doc" anymore.
36. Not allowed to mark my unit out of service in order to respond to the Bat Signal, no matter what dastardly danger threatens fair Gotham.
37. In regards to #36, "bat nipples" are not part of a proper EMS uniform.
38. From now on, if a patient's chief complaint involves "I was bitten by a plague rat", I will contact medical control and let them know about this PRIOR to contacting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
39. The proper German translation of EMS Supervisor" is "Rettungsdienstleiter", not "Rettungsfuhrer" so I will take that sign off of the door immediately.
40. Not allowed to stand idly by while stupid probie firefighters nearly asphyxiate themselves because of thorough unfamiliarity with their SCBA's.
41. Not allowed to bite the drug dog.
42. Not even if "he tried to bite me first!"

50. Especially not when the answer to #49 involves the words ?chief?s office?

52. I will not refer to stroke pts as CCFCcP (coo coo for cocoa puffs).
53. I will not surgilube the door handles of the supervisors vehicle.
54. I will not call dispatch and ask them for a tone test immediately after my partner goes into the bathroom or shower.
55. I will not spike a 1000 bag of fluid and leave it on top of the tire and run the tubing in the window over the drivers seat so the next person to drive the rig gets wet.
56. I will not turn on the enemy's (translated: rival company) lights and sirens while they are in the ER with a pt so that when they turn the truck on they make a lot of noise, nor will i tape down the airhorn button after filling the airhorns with hand cleanser foam....
57. I will get my paperwork done on time.
58. I will stop wasting time online adding things to lists in order to comply with #57!

Gee, thanks for stealing our list:

Nice to see that you at least have the decency to give credit to the 15 or so people who contributed to it- which you are part of (you contributed a few to it, but not many of the ones you claimed here as your own).

As everyone has described you on EMTCity-WANNABE.

Perhaps since your still pretty new you are not aware...

But at 60 posts if you have been paying attention you would notice...

One of the nice things we all love about EMT Life is we try to refrain from name calling....

I personally have "borrowed" stuff from other sites and posted it here. Call it stealing if you want, then fine...I have stolen other peoples material and put it here. Its cute/funny/fun to read. Its fun to share.

So unless the material is copyrighted, and it is stolen and printed in it entire content, then it is free game.

So you came up with most of it...I'd say give yourself a pat on the back...but your doing just fine by yourself.

The only thing I would suggest to 007medic is, that kind of thing is really more for the EMS Humor sub topic, but other than that...

Great List!

Where do you think I get all my "material"..?

I don't just pull it out of a hat.

I checked out EMT City, lots of well, blah. EMTLife is much better anyway, but at least EMT City have an entire star of life, and it's not black and grey in color anymore. Remined me of a funeral home. HA HA HA.

For further reference as to your harassing of the members with childish name calling. See the second line of my signature.

At least some constructive threads go on over at EMTCity. Not just assinine debates over CISD and people engaging in anatomy measuring contests over the most interesting or emotionally devestating call. :)

Ok. Couple of good ones:

Send the probie in search of a Left-handed smoke shifter at the fireground.standby.

Send the probie in search of 25 feet of fallopian tubing, to use to extend the hose to wash the rig.

Send the probie over to the firehouse for a bucket of elbow grease to wash thee rig with.

My favroite... send the probie to the communications center for a tactical box to help move stuff around at station.
