Woman writes a scathing note and leaves it on an ambulance parked in front of her house (they were at the neighbor’s) to MOVE THEIR VAN NOW…
We’ve reported lots of this sort of stuff on E-hell but this takes the cake, plate, server, and topper. 0218-18
A snippet from the above linked article…
A woman left an abusive note on an ambulance dealing with a 999 call, ordering paramedics to “move their van”.
The writer said she did not care if “the whole street collapsed” and the crew had “no right to be parked here”.
The hand-written message was left on an ambulance in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, earlier.
Operational manager Mike Duggan said the paramedics also received verbal abuse.
He shared an image of the note on Twitter saying he was “very angry”.
Paramedic Katie Tudor tweeted Staffordshire Police asking: “Is there anything that can be done about this? It’s becoming a regular occurrence.”
It takes a special kind of snowflake to insist that an ambulance is violating her space and must be moved. It’s short -sighted, selfish and represents a character deficiency …almost sociopathic, in my opinion.
A member of my extended family is a paramedic and, oh, the stories this person can tell. Once he and his partner were trying to resuscitate an elderly woman who appeared to have had a heart attack. Two of her grandsons, both adults, threatened to kill them if they were unsuccessful in saving her. Both paramedics promptly stood up, left all the equipment there, walked out of the house, locked themselves in the ambulance and called 911 for police assistance. At least in the US, there are certain things that, if said, automatically triggers a required response from the first responders. Death threats said in the heat of emotions is number one on the list of things you do not say to the EMS or paramedics. The elderly woman died, btw.
