Paramedics dating nurses
A few quiet days in a row equals an excellent call. When you and your partner are the only ones not panicking in the room. When you don’t let anybody get between you and the exit route at social gatherings. If you think getting off the layzee boy and answering the phone is a good form of exercise 38.
Random phones and buzzers send your heart into VF 26. If you find skipping with an oxygen tubing a good form of exercise 37.

You see any person with a welfare card as your “employer” 4. You have withdrawal from not wearing green on your days off! You tell the best story ever, and you’re the only one who can see the humor in it 52. You have perfected the art of responding through rush hour traffic, with a burger in the one hand and a drink in the other. You hear a siren and you know exactly what service or vehicle it is. It drives you nuts when some ignorant fool calls you a first aider. You get called out for abdo (abdomen) pain at three in the morning to find your “patient” at the gate with their bag packed, and the whole family waiting to wave good bye. When hearing there is a doctor/nurse on scene, you consider it a bad thing. You’ve ever had an altercation on scene with a rubberneck. You crouch down in your car as you go past accident scenes so the crew already there won’t see you. You can’t put up IV lines unless everything is shaking around. You know at least 3 alternate routes to any place you are going. You’ve ever blown up a glove and drawn a face on it in the hopes it will stop your pediatrics patient from screaming. You can skip to the head of the line at the local Burger king or Mc Donald’s because you’re in uniform. It drives you nuts when a driver only says they’re a “Paramedic.” 80.
You at all your friends and realize they work for an emergency service or a hospital 5. It drives you absolutely nuts when someone calls you an “Ambulance Driver” 7. You have an entire closet dedicated to uniforms 18. You can put together a complete sentence using numbers and acronyms. “LOL” doesn’t mean “laughing out loud” but rather it means “little old lady.” 54. You’re covered in some bodily fluid or another more often than not and it doesn’t bother you. You’re tempted to use “oxygen therapy” on all annoying people, not just patients: an O2 tank over the head fixes everything (especially in combative patients). You find random pairs of gloves in every pair of trousers you own, whether they be uniform or civvies. You want to throw something at the TV when they shock asystole on some TV show. When hot spots are not areas of heat in a babies bottle. (This is even worse than being called an ambulance driver.) 66. When you come home in a clean uniform after a 24- hour shift and your spouse automatically becomes suspicious of your whereabouts. You and your partner are deciding what kind of burger to order after the call while your patient is projectile vomiting! You remember every patient by their injury or disease and not their name. You trample over people to get out of the coffee shop, fly through traffic for “SOB (shortness of breath) and chest pain” only to arrive on the scene to find a sharply-dressed senior citizen who walks up to the ambulance and says,” Good! You resuscitate a regular patient and honestly question whether or not you have helped the community at all 81.

While I wasn’t exactly looking for Dan Rather level reporterage I was still left disappointed by the piece. For example, the article’s reason #15 claims “Paramedics are strong.
