Default Poor Timing!!!

I get to the firehouse this morning and get all of my "chores" done so I'm free at 9:00 to watch some Bear'n Down action. Things have been very slow.....but wouldn't you know it.....15 minutes before the show starts we caught a run.

Some guy decides to run a shovel through a gas line and I want to watch AC. The nerve of some people

Thank god for DVR

How hard is it to hire a locator??? HELLO!!!

Well as much as I feel for you... I'm glad to know that my old district isn't the only self-centered one.

Nothing like the 3am "I think I'm having a heart attack." call to screw up a perfectly good nap. (For Reference - RJ was around 2 months old the last time I took those kinds of call).

Don't they have a "Call Before You Dig" program there? Good grief!

They do......he didn't feel he had to make the call because he was using a shovel and not heavy equipment.

Two words........JOB SECURITY

Here's what happened a couple weeks ago when someone started digging and believed they found an abandoned gas line...
