Back in my EMS days my partner and I had a student medic riding with us. It was a semi-slow day and we had just dropped off a patient at the hospital.
Since it was lunchtime we stopped in at the local Mc Burger joint for a very unhealthy bite on the run. The student ordered her chicken sandwich with "EXTRA EXTRA MAYO" (which was cause enough for teasing). As my partner and I scarffed back our food as we tried to get back to base, we realized that the student wasn't eating... we advised her that she should eat while she can, in case we get another call. She said, "no, I'm gonna wait 'till we get back to base."

My partner and I looked at each other and smirked when dispatch called us for a 40 y/o male, sick with the flu for a week and unable to move. When we got to the scene we found the man in bed next to the hotwater tank, in the basement of a house and it looked like he had not gotten out of this bed for ANYTHING in a week! (I have NEVER been so glad to have been driving a call in my life!) Bugs, filth, fleas, bed sores, EVERYTHING.

We looked at the student and said, in almost cartoon unison: "ok, your patient".
As can be expected, the student had to take the feet on the stair-chair, run all the vitals, clean the rig, etc..

At the hospital she held up the BP cuff and made an "ewww" face at this glob of puss on it. "Hmmm must have popped it when you inflated the cuff" and I handed her the bottle of disinfectant.

Without missing a beat, I said " say, you didn't get your 'EXTRA EXTRA MAYO' on that did you?" Knowing full well that she hadn't touched her lunch yet.

She instantly turned green, went to the front of the rig, picked up her bag of Mc Mayo, stepped out of the rig and dropped the whole bag in the garbage.

Dispite our efforts, she wouldn't eat the whole remainder of the day.
I even offered to pay... HEHEHE!!!!

I was on tour for EMS one day when we recieved an alarm for our convention center for a patient that had a syncopal episode on the dance floor. My crew chief met us on scene and told us to bring in a full c-spine setup in with us for the patient. As we entered the convention center the lights were down low and we could see our patient on the floor. When we got closer it looked as if our patient was around 500 lbs and spread-eagle on the floor completely naked. I looked at my partner and we both smiled, trying to keep our composure. It turns out that it was a female patient in a sumo suit that had a syncopal episode. To our further surprise in order for the patient to have gotten into the suit she had to literally take off all of her clothes because she had a dress on for the party. Needless to say the patient never recalled what happened to her to get herself into that situation (probably a good thing!) but it always puts a smile on my face whenever I see a sumo suit!!

When I was still a probie, a box alarm came in from a psych ward type of hospital. The Capt. and I went in fully dressed I had the flat head ax and Haligan. The receptionist said the alarm was coming from the patient area. We started to go through the double door to the back when she stopped us abruptly and asked if we had any knives on us. I just looked at her then I looked at my ax then I looked at her....she then asked again "you know..knives? or anything dangerous?" The Capt. just shook his head and told me to wait there while he silenced the alrm. I went over to the waiting area leaned the irons against the wall and started reading Natl Geographic. Just thought Id blend in....

I went to a room and contents fire, as we were overhauling we noticed a piece of cardboard on the wall and on that cardboard was writing that stated the house rules, 2 ladies lived there can't recall if they were sisters or not. But it went something like this we don't have a lot of money so we don't need any gucci jeans and such no name will do we don't need any lobsters and such fishsticks will do. we don't need anyoff that drama of cheating any man that won't stay true doesn't belong with us, it went on and on it was funny I wanted to snap a picture of it but never got the chance we were all laughing after reading it.

I have one I started working EMS with a new partner very nice guy just not very common sense smart he was the paramedic and I was the EMT. We gaot a call for a cardiac arrest upon arrival the daughter met us outside and stated "she has left" at which time my partner said "where did she go" and my job dropped, she then said "she is gone" and he said "yes but where to" I quickly picked up my jaw after finding it and told him 10-7 which meant she has died, and he said oHHH okay well we need to check her. i just shook my head.

Just responded to a call on friday afternoon for a 52yo c/c of an O/D. After holding off and free to move in when PD secured the scene. This same person tells us she was trying to kill herself by smoking crack cocaine. I asked her how much crack had she smoked and she said $600 worth over the last 48 hrs., but she said hadn't smoked any in the last 10hrs. All vitals were in normal limits. Her c/c now was abd. pain. and I asked her when she was going to grow up! OMG give me a break! LOL.

Just responded to an 80 y/o F, c/o itching on her stomach from burn scars from her child hood. She wanted us to take her to the hospital because she did not have a car to take herself. We kindly explained that our ambulance is not a taxi service and that she needed to find a neighbor to take her to the dr.
