    Question A MUTT or not?

    I used to think I knew what a mutt was...

    I have always known mutt to be word, as others have said, used almost exclusively by the fire service, and to describe a person in the fire service who just doesn't care or is an all-around jerk about everything.

    Now, I'm not so sure. I believe I have seen the word MUTT used in every possible way on these forums. Even to describe arsonists who are not a part of the fire service at all.

    So, I'm curious, what is YOUR definition of the word MUTT?

    I was told a MUTT is anyone who does anything to harm or discredit the Fire Service in some way.
    To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.

    From the FOOLS website:

    "A Mutt is someone or thing that will abuse and mistreat a Firefighter. This can be the City, the Mayor, the Chief in Charge, the habitual caller, or the homeless Person who starts a fire and leaves."

    Default The whole enchilada........

    "F**K THE MUTTS- PROTECT THE BROTHERS"

    A Mutt is someone or thing that will abuse and mistreat a Firefighter. This can be the City, the Mayor, the Chief in Charge, the habitual caller, or the homeless Person who starts a fire and leaves.
    These are people that have never crawled down a hall or made the last room in an effort to do their job. If they can't get the job done today well maybe next week will do.
    If we don't get the job done people might die and our brother and sister might also die. So we always lay it on the line and leave a little behind at every fire. I say that in a dark smokey hallway I can't tell the race, creed or sex of my fellow firefighter, I just know that they are with me. I don't care who or what you are as long as you are a firefighter and want to protect your brothers and sisters.

    No offense Adze, but I thought the whole thing was more appropriate...

    The distinguished gentleman from Cape Cod summed it up just perfectly. Thanks Dave!
