    Default What you see here, what you hear here...

    Something told me to check the forums before hitting the rack... Wilmington, did you go to a bar and have a few too many and then decide to come to the forums and express your displeasure at the city? What station do you work at? If it's number three then I live in one of the apt complexes in your first due (think 3 story buildings, college students, small pond, etc). Despite the fact that there are numerous depts with labor problems you are the first poster I have ever seen outright bash your city, and therefore I have no respect for you. When you come on an international forum and trash your city and department without giving any background information, you appear to be nothing more than a malcontent who is itching to throw up the white flag. You guys had an impressive presence at the city council meeting last week, but you don't get what you want and you suddenly give up? I guess when things get hard you just wanna back out? That's always a sign of a great firefighter (heavy sarcasm). I live in the Port City and volunteer in the area and as a political science student would be more than happy to stand with my Brothers during your current fight with city hall. However, the ball is in YOUR court: You (WFD members) should be reaching out to the citizens of the city and to your fellow firefighters to help you in your current struggle. You'd be surprised at what resources are at your (WFD) disposal is you would just ask.

    .........then you take the rubber chicken and duct tape. Holding the rubber chicken against the flux capacitor, wrap it with 7.675 layers of duct tape. Then, place the positive lead of the schnertzgeherder in the rubber chicken's mouth. Put the negative lead up it's ***. This should work.

    I'm just over the bridge from Wilmington and had the pleasure of working with some of their guys during the terrorism drill last weekend. If they are really that discontent, they definitely didn't let it show on scene. 100% professional. Hats off to them!

    Be thankful you have "The Job". Trust me from experience, it can get worse. Just remember why you took the job to begin with. Keep your head up!
