    You stay up for 16 hours

    He's been up for 48 strait
    _________________________

    You take a warm shower to help you wake up.

    The rain in the middle of the interstate keeps him awake.
    __________________________

    You complain of a "headache", and call in sick.

    He's chilled to the bone, hasnt eaten all day, has the flu, and then runs into a burning building
    __________________________

    You drink your coffee on your way to the mall.

    He pumps on a five years olds chest on the way to the hospital.
    __________________________

    You make sure you're cell phone is in your pocket.

    He makes sure the pass device on his pack is working.
    __________________________

    You talk trash about your "buddies" that aren't with you.

    He watches his buddy fall through four floors.
    __________________________

    You walk down the beach, staring at all the pretty girls.

    He walks down the highway looking for the motorcyclist missing limb.
    _________________________

    You complain about how hot it is.

    He wears fifty pounds of gear in the middle of july and drags a body out of 1600 degree flames.
    __________________________

    You go out to lunch, and complain because the restaurant got your order wrong.

    He hasnt seen a meal since last shift ate breakfast.
    __________________________

    Your maid makes your bed and washes your clothes.

    Hes worn the same stinking, wet, grungy clothes for the past 24 hours....no time for a shower.
    __________________________

    You go to the mall and get your hair redone.

    He holds the hair of some college girl while shes puking in the back of the ambo.
    __________________________

    You're angry because your class ran 5 minutes over.

    His shift ended 2 hours ago and he on for another 24 hours at a station thirty miles away.
    __________________________

    Hes in the back of the engine, going to cut somebody out of their car only to find out that their dead and their daughter is barely alive.
    __________________________

    You roll your eyes as a baby cries.

    He cries as he hears his new born cry in the hospital....but he was taking a drunk teenager in when his boy was born.
    __________________________

    You criticize your fire dept and say their never there quick enough anyways.

    He blows the air horn while the person in front of them refuses to move while talking on their cell phone and doing their makeup.
    __________________________

    You hear the jokes about fallen firefighters and say they should have known better.

    He feels the floor give way while hes carrying an old lady from her bedroom and tosses on to the hard floor and falls into the unknown.
    __________________________

    You see the bright lights when you go by.

    He sees the broken bodies lying around the car.
    __________________________

    You are asked to go to the store by your parents. You don't.

    He looks into buying a bullet proof vest because he been shot at trying to save the shooting victims life.
    __________________________

    You stay at home and watch TV.

    He takes his spare time to wash the wagon, restock the ambo and maybe call his mother to tell her not to worry, he'll be home the next night
    __________________________

    You crawl into your soft bed, with down pillows, and get comfortable.

    He tries to sleep on his spring board bed but keeps getting woken up by the gong and bell, ahh, one hour of sleep, it should due till tommorow night.
    __________________________

    You sit there and judge him, saying the that its a waste of money to have them around.

    Garbage truck workers make more than he does, but its not for the money, its for the people who dont appreciate what he does.

    Look up, "glurge."
    "Nemo Plus Voluptatis Quam Nos Habant"

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    In ordinary language, glurge is the sending of inspirational (often supposedly “true”) tales that conceal much darker meanings than the uplifting moral lessons they purport to offer, and that undermine their messages by distorting historical fact in the guise of offering a “true story”.

    Seen it before, but it's always nice to read it.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    Egh, sounds kind of bitter and crude, with a touch of condescending. In fact, I believe this might be one step lower than "My Time, My Gas . . . "

    I don't think it was written for firefighters though. We already know it is the sh*ttiest best job that's not actually a job in the world.

    P.S.

    Not really a fan of this one.
