I mean like wow damn what the f##k?!.

Some days are rainy and some days are sunny...

Theres good days and theres bad days and then theres really bad days like this...

Theres good luck and theres bad luck and then theres really bad luck like this...

Unfortunately some people might actually be cursed...

Just about as bad and unlucky and cursed as an ambulance getting into a car accident while transporting a car accident victim...

Accidents while on a call are common, given we are going at an accelerated speed, dodging red lights , and most people ignore the two ton thing with the lights and sirens, and don't yield.

I know ambulance workers who have lost limbs in accidents. They are also killed on Occasion.
I've been shot at on no less than three occasions. I've had stuff thrown out windows at me. I know people who have been mugged for their equipment while on a call.

We lift a lot of weight, numerous times a day, and are in and out of the elements all day.
It's a very harder and dangerous job.

I have had many friends that worked as paramedics. They had the most interesting range of stories from any jobs I'd ever heard.
From hero, to horror and sometimes all in one day! damned.gif

I wouldnt want to be an ambulance driver or a paramedic or even a police officer or fire fighter no matter how well paid i was because having to arrive upon horrible fires and accidents and car crashes involving little children would just crush whatever soul and shatter whatever faith i have left inside me...

My big sister works in the ambulance and my brother used to as well. It's not an easy of safe job at all.

And thanklessly taken for granted by way too many people...

I think paramedics have to dissect a human body or at least watch a human autopsy being performed or so I was told by someone and even though I have a very strong stomach thats something I would not want to do and maybe couldnt do?!

For one example I mean like seriously how could a male mortician go home to his wife every night and look at and think about her and her body normally?!

In the USA, you do clinical time in every dept of a hospital.
Then labs.
Hours of it.
I almost didn't get my license because I refused to do the dog and cat labs.
I don't mind watching an autopsy, but the stench down there was UNNNBELIEVABLE.
No amount of vapor rub under your nose, or wearing a triple mask, got rid of that smell. Smell is my only issue.
Blood guts brains bones.. Nothing. BAD smell... Ugh

Well it's nothing to us.
My friends and family got used to it, but I've made an occasional person lose their appetite at dinner, by talking shop

In NYC, we have to pass a grueling physical. Once you're on the job, we do a yearly physical.
That being said, you can pass a physics, and have a heart attack a half hour later. General physicals don't show up clogged coronary arteries

Well, it seems to me that that person was not taking the prescribed meds.
