Calls at the chicken processing plant always suck. I can't get the stink off my boots and it totally turns me off to chicken. I can see why people become vegans.

We get called out for washdowns from the rendering plant trucks... Absolutely sickening. Even worse, since we can't even wash it off, we get to spend an hour babysitting the stuff till their cleanup crews with their own chemical sludge come out and scrape it off.

Why do you get called out to those?

Not really sure beyond, that we can "contain" the spills until their crew get there. That stuff is worse than black ice.

So my shift started at 530. We did a ER to SNF transfer, went to a hard post and I just woke up...

I'll take it.

Don't judge me.

Well, no more fast and furious. Paul Walker died today... In a car crash...

The irony..
Well, apparently he wasn't driving...

EMS1 has an article from REMSA in Reno regarding drivers that fail to move out of the way during emergent responses. Gotta love these "breaking news" style stories. In tomorrow's headline, we'll likely hear how new fangled electricity can "jump start" hearts.

Dude it's pretty bad.

I keep saying we need rumblers in the new units.

Oh, I'm certain it is. Do you think it's worse than other places or anything new? I think driver's training in general should emphasize pulling to the right and stopping a little bit more. The thing that kills me in this area is people pulling into the right shoulder and continuing to cruise at 65 MPH, thereby blocking the right turn I need to make.

All of our new units (and several older ones) have the rumblers. I love those

I've never worked or driven emergent anywhere else so I can't say but all I will say is that we're generally in the middle lane rather than the far left. People can't be bothered to pull to the right cause they have to make a left turn in a quarter mile.

They do the pull to the side but not slow down business too. It's so frustrating. There are some drivecams of me saying very rude things...

This is the worst. The other things are annoying, but this is what gets me the most.

I wish I was just in that position. I've been hit hard with a nasty head and chest cold, with a massive sinus headache and blocked ears. I've hardly slept for 2 nights. I finally get to sleep today, just to have someone knock on my bedroom door 2 hours later telling me dinner is ready. And I haven't been able to get back to sleep since... And I don't get a day off until next Saturday.

I know I shouldn't laugh at this, but a guy I know went to finish his sleeve today and he fell asleep during it. Artist took it upon himself to draw a face in the moon that was in the sleeve already, that strongly resembles Jack from a Nightmare before Christmas.
So jacked up, but it's so damn funny. Well, not to him, but to me :rofl:
Edit: About mid arm, right above the elbow (I'd really feel like a nerd if I called it the antecubital fossa, but...)

My other sleeve would be free.
