    Well, then he has some major issue. Maybe a volunteer fire department kicked his ***, or showed him up. or maybe he just thinks being paid makes him so much cooler and better then anyone else. Whatever his issue is, he is a major *** hole and treats people like crap. One day he will be gone from the service and we can only hope his ignorance does not spread to others that follow.

    Oh look, the gangs all here. Club meeting? I want to see your cool jackets. I bet they have neat patches that say "We are fire gods. All others shall bow before us." What's the gangs name? "Old farts united"?

    Yep, these are the same 6 people that have been involved with every belittling, ignorant, new comer trashing thread on this site. The same 6 people have no respect for anyone else. The same 6 people think they are the only firefighters in the world worth picking up a hose. The same 6 people that need to get their heads out of their *** and stop being ******.

    Sure thing sonny, I have been a volunteer/paid on call firefighter for 35 years. In fact right now I am a member of 2 paid on call fire departments. I do have a big issue with volunteer/paid on call fire departments that accept any warm body that passes through the door and then don't expect them to train, get certified, and actually show up for drills and calls. Pay status has nothing to do with whether or not one is a professional.



    If you want information, look it up. You are on the GREATEST information machine in human history. Please use it to learn instead of spreading your stupid. Oh and learn a new word, www.thesaurus.com. Try it.

    Thank you for finally admitting you LIED about the school, the teacher, and your nonsense of phone text speak being part of the curriculum. There is absolutely no other explanation for your refusal to disclose who and where this is located.


    Well goody for you. I am glad you were paid to go to class. and had 2 jobs to pay for other things you needed. Not much of a social life? Guess being an *** hole, you wouldn't huh?

    I see you use the thesaurus you want me to use and learned a new word you have used over and over in your posts.

    Hey sonny, do you get paid anything for going on calls?

    Thank you for your concern about my social life. It was actually pretty gosh darn awesome. I am sorry you can't do that with your life. Maybe some time management classes would assist you
    .
    Golly, you make me laugh every time you post.

    I see you do absolutely no research prior to spouting off complete inaccuracies. If you had, you would know that, not only is FyredUp a career firefighter, he has also been and continues to be a volunteer as well.
    Whatever his issue is, he is a major *** hole and treats people like crap.
    Far from the truth. He does speak his mind and have an intelligent opinion earned and learned from many years in the fire service. Seeing countless pups such as your self, claiming youth and progress trumps wisdom and experience, flounder and fail.
    One day he will be gone from the service and we can only hope his ignorance does not spread to others that follow.
    Your lack of experience and inability to want to earn it will soon have your crocodile mouth overloading your hummingbird a s s.
    I will be honest, I consider FyredUp a friend, and like many other intelligent posters on here, I may not always agree with their or his opinion. But instead of resorting to threats or name calling, I find it easier to educate myself to present a counter-point or opposing view for debate. Maybe you will be around long enough to mature to that level.

    But his lack of intelligence prevents him from properly disagreeing. He turns it into berating others so he can feel better.

    Which he has not been able to do. He is the first one to start the name calling.

    My maturity has surpassed him by many levels. I can look at an issue and try to see both sides. I can listen to others and not dismiss something they say just because I had not heard of it. I do not challenge every damn person I meet and tell them to prove themselves to me or I will not respect them. That is the maturity level of a 5th grader. Maybe some day he will rise above that level.

    Here I did some work for you (you lazy *** hole)

    A lot of folks are very worried about the impact of teenagers texting. In a Daily Mail article (oh! the shame), John Humphrys expressed the view that "SMS vandals... are doing to our language what Genghis Khan did to his neighbours" and goes on to warn of the danger of "our written language [ending up] as a series of ridiculous emoticons and ever-changing abbreviations". Sounds pretty dreadful, doesn't it?

    For as long as there have been mobile phones, it has been the job of schools and teachers to confiscate 'em. The standard approach seems to be blanket bans in classrooms and a grudging tolerance for them being kept switched off and out of sight at the bottom of bags. Fortunately, my school is one that has sought to harness the power of mobiles in a productive way.

    English teachers will be aware that the new GCSE English Language specifications include a requirement for student to write about spoken language and intriguingly, one of AQA's controlled assessment topics is the option to examine how the language of text messages, Twitter and chat rooms relates to the way we speak. The assessment task students would have to answer is: What devices do people use to maintain brevity when messaging/texting? How does this relate to the way we speak?
    This study led to schools learning that students communicated better with text language. Classes were started on a trial basis.



    Now I am sure you will ignore this information, weasel your way into turning it into something else. I wouldn't expect anything else from you.

    Oh, and here is an article in the NY times about a teacher promoting text speak.

    [quote]I’VE been teaching college freshmen to write the five-paragraph essay and its bully of a cousin, the research paper, for years. But these forms invite font-size manipulation, plagiarism and clichés. We need to set our sights not lower, but shorter.

    ...learning how to write concisely, to express one key detail succinctly and eloquently, is an incredibly useful skill, and more in tune with most students’ daily chatter, as well as the world’s conversation. The photo caption has never been more vital."

    You see this is the fallacy in your argument. YOU stated this school and this teacher exist, yet you want me to search the entire United States to find ANY school that does what you are trying to prove.

    Why, when you have a clear opportunity to prove your point, do you refuse over and over to do so?

    Oh wait, that's right, because you are LYING.

    Um.... No where in that article does that College Professor say he condones text speak..... He is simply asking his students to write shorter assignments, using real, FULL words...

    Good effort... Try again?

    That doesn't say they are allowed to, or taught, to write papers in text speak. Again, nice try...

    Golly, smart guy this is what you posted, not some study:

    I recently went to my old high school to see a friend. I stopped into the English department to see the teacher. I noticed they did not use paper anymore. Everyone had a laptop. While sitting at his desk he was grading some things. All the "papers" on the computer had some short hand in them. This was not marked off or considered incorrect. It was accepted as "the new way".
    Then you followed it with this post:

    This teacher has been teacher of the year 4 years running, The school teaches short hand in the class. They understand that soon this will be a needed skill to know how to read and write it.
    So you were talking about a specific school, that you supposedly attended, and supposedly went back to visit, and supposedly talked to your old english teacher, who supposedly was allowing phone text speak in homework assignments. Now because you realize I will not let you get away with that LIE you are changing the parameters of your LIE to expand it out into an area totally unrelated to your original LIE.

    It really doesn't have to be this complicated, just tell me where the school is located and who the teacher is so I can e-mail him and talk to him about this. Or keep LYING and evading the truth.

    I don’t expect all my graduates to go on to Twitter-based careers, but learning how to write concisely, to express one key detail succinctly and eloquently, is an incredibly useful skill,
    A perfect example of a need for text speaking. Limited character space to talk with.

    Which you have just proven.

    Even when you are provided with the information requested, you decided to ignore it and say it isn't what it means.

    This also goes back to that privacy thing you mentioned before. You want the name of the school? Why, So you can look it up, look up the area, search this and that, then start harassing me like you did Mr D (yeah I read that thread and saw how big of a dick you were there too). Unlike him, I am a private person on the web. So keep asking all you want. I am not telling you my personal information. Go bully someone else.

    No sonny, I want you to admit you LIED about visiting your high school, visiting your English teacher, and seeing him allowing text speak in homework assignments. Or come clean and say who the teacher is and where the school is. Because until you do everything you post is smoke and mirrors trying to cover up your original BALD FACED LIE that I won't let you get away with.

    There it is, I am simply not going to let you continue to LIE and play games. It's really simple, come clean and admit you LIED or name the school and the teacher.

    I already know what you will do...and pathetically so do you.
