To Protect and serve.

By
Real Estate Agent with Optimar International Realty

I`ve seen it all. Today at the gas pump there was a fist fight between a elderly gentlemen and a volunteer fire fighter with an F-350 Diesel truck, who felt he should hog not one pump but two! Best part was he was shooting the BULL with his buddies and what should have taken 10 minutes to fill his truck actually was 30 minutes.

The elderly guy, who was in the right, walked over to the Bully and asked him to move his truck forward and stop taking up two pumps. I was appalled that the Volunteer Fire Figher had the gall to tell the Elderly man to "Shut Up and move to another pump"  

What irks me was the attitude this person demonstrated to all of us who were waiting patiently for this Animal to vacate the pump. When he yelled at the other man, I rolled down my window and told him is "This How we Protect and Serve, you animal?!". This person had no respect for anyone as he continued to Tell anyone an everyone around him that he`s got the truck and the pumps to himself.. It`s criminal how in times of people working with each other helping one another that this person really is out there!

I'd hate to see how this guy acts when there are actually "lines" at the gas pump.  This guy is not off to a good start this Monday!

Its sad to see something like this.  Hopefully he was just having a bad day or something.  I wish there were more volunteers in this world.

Actually...protect and serve is the mantra of the police department....but we get the point.  ;-)  That guy sounds like a jerk.

Lol - firefighters are a rough bunch... mostly drunks in my opinion! But they do save lives!
