There are 2 types of firefighters in this world, REAL firefighters and OUT-STANDING firefighters.
REAL firefighters show up to help out at the scene
OUT-STANDING firefighters show up and are OUT STANDING AROUND while the REAL firefighters do all the work
REAL firefighters do the job because they care about the community and love the job
OUT-STANDING firefighters do the job because they think the chicks dig it
REAL firefighters show up at a moments notice to ANY call because they know someone needs help
OUT-STANDING firefighters are OUT STANDING AROUND at the station drinking beer while the REAL firefighters are helping Mrs Smith who fell down the stairs again but knows she can rely on the fire department for help
REAL firefighters dont expect anything in return, although a simple thank you is all they usually like more than anything else
OUT-STANDING firefighters expect people to owe them for doing the job, and to them and thank you isnt good enough
REAL firefighters know the value of new equipment and treat it better than their own stuff
OUT-STANDING firefighters always think that it can just be replaced and dont take care of apparatus or gear
REAL firefighters take their classes so they dont get injured and can do the job well
OUT-STANDING firefighters dont need classes cuz what good are they anyway, theyre OUT STANDING AROUND
REAL firefighters are the true heroes of America but will never admit to it
OUT-STANDING firefighters run around telling people they are heroes and make ALL firefighters look the same because every department has both of these type of firefighters
Make what you want of this, repost this if you are a REAL firefighter.
If youre and OUT-STANDING firefighter, you make me sick, take the job seriously and put some effort into your department, your REAL firefighters can still save you from looking like an idiot in the eyes of your brother firefighters and the public eye
The common nickname for these guys is the Blister Bunch; they only show up after the work is all done. And they are irritating, but that goes without saying.
As far as Tom and Joe- knowing both of you and knowing both of your sarcasm meters are doing just fine (right there along with mine), it appears we have that unusual event when two sarcastic comments are made and one thinks the other is serious.
