I know this is going to go nowhere because our bosses are scared of dipshit patients and scumbag lawyers, but as a thought exercise, why is it that fire crews can choose to not respond to repeat alarms and cops can choose to not respond to chronic calls and non-injury wrecks while we go to every single one of our frequent calls? And unlike them, we usually, stupidly, go lights and sirens too. Obviously the cops and the firefighters can decide at the field level what is and what isn’t an legitimate emergency, but we can’t?
We went to the same street corner 6 times in one shift because the resident homeless guy with a movement disorder likes to lie on the ground occasionally when he’s not being handed money, and motorists are apparently too fucking busy NOT paying attention to their driving and instead dialing 911.
I suppose I should just be glad that he leaves at night.
