Well today marks the true start (for this season) of the silly crap that people do. Today in Dry Ridge we had our first round of bad roads. For some reason everyone forgets how to drive in the snow. It started to stick to the roads about 0600 and by 0900 we were on the first of many runs for the day. This happens every year, for what ever reason no one drives with caution. And tose tat do drive, especially those going to shop could care less why you are out running red lights and do not care as long as they get where they want to go.
For example: going to a vehicle that overturned, in an area that is bad when weather is good, get to the first intersection past the fire house and get to a red ligt and have to come to a complete stop due to someone who had a green light needed through the intersection worse than us. 3 miles down the road there is a bad hill that is slick. Drop my chains and head over, half way down the hill is a guy in a truck that is going up (surt of) the hill sideways spinning. He sees me and stops the truck, gets out and yells at me because he cannot get up the hill for the fact that he had to stop and let me through. Get on the scene and try to get to my paitents and have three people try to stop me to ask how long it will be they have to get through.
Does anyone care about other human beings anymore or has the world gotten to the point of "It's all about ME" and that is all that matters. Almost 20 years in the service, I know that it's a thankless job 95% of the time but have we reached the point of not caring, no concerns, and no compation?
Sorry about the rant but I needed to let some things out.........
