We respond to emergencies.
We make mistakes. We get sick. We get hungry. We get thirsty. We get hot. We get cold. We get tired. We work nights and weekends and holidays. We are subject to the laws of nature and the laws of physics. We get offended. We get upset. We get sad. We laugh. We fall through roofs. We get burned. We get hurt when we wreck. We get spit on. We run after bad guys. We fight with them. We get assaulted by them. We get shot at. Sometimes we get shot. We get stuck by dirty needles. We do a lot of things we don’t want to do.
But we do it anyway.
And we do it for you. Many of you are polite and grateful. We appreciate it.
And we usually do our best.
Unless you’re an asshole.
