Considering that I have already done my fair share of ridding people's homes of vermin, I thought that my new hoseman would be much better suited to the task, so he firemanned up and grabbed that thing by the scruff of the neck and walked it outside. Another happy tax paying citizen in Altoona. Vacation this week...12..days off...after one more night shift tonight that is.
My week was good...at least the 4 days off shift were good. I am back to work this morning though. I hate getting up early so I am glad that I only have to get up 2 days out of every 8. I could never go back to a real job. I actually went to an original call today already, an oppossum in a woman's kitchen, first time for that one. lol
How was your week???
