Oral board question I can't figure out
I was asked this question in one oral board, Maybe Capt Bob or someone who has sat on a board can help. Here is how i went:
**You are a rookie FF and you notice that the engineer is eating your lunch, what would you do?
-- I would assume that he mistakenly ate my lunch, and I would let him know it was my lunch and not make a big deal out of it.
**The next shift, the engineer is eating your lunch again.
-- I would not say anything, I would assume that it was some kind of test. I would bring 2 lunches next shift.
**The engineer eats both lunches next shift.
--I would lock up my lunch in my locker on the next shift.
**The engineer breaks the lock and is eating your lunch again.
-- At this point, the engineer has gone beyond simply messing with my lunch, he has broken the lock on my locker, which is a more serious action. I would consult a senior firefighter for advice.
**The senior firefighter says that he has no advice for me, he does not know why the engineer is doing that
-- I would approach the engineer and attempt to find out why he insists on eating my lunch.
**The engineer tells you to go pound sand.
-- I feel at this point that I have exhausted all other avenues, so I would take the matter to my captain.
