With the events in the news lately I’ve been taking a long look at what I do, and why I do it. Dispatching wasn’t my first choice, but helping people was. I spent 8 years as a firefighter. I’ve seen trauma, I’ve seen destruction, and I’ve seen death. None of it was easy, but none of it was as difficult as being a dispatcher.
I’m burnt. I feel like that last hamburger on the tray at the cookout that no one will touch and everyone turns their nose up at. There aren’t enough pickles or mustard in the world to cover up the crispy black edges. I wonder, how did I get this way? Is there any way back out? Obviously there are others like me. It could have easily been me that got frustrated or felt insulted and hung up. We don’t know the whole story. What kind of call happened before that? It doesn’t matter right? We have to be strong. We have to push the things we hear to the back of our minds so we can deal with the next person’s emergency, right?
I’ve been on the phone when a baby has taken its first breath. I’ve been on the phone when a person has taken their last. I’ve heard everything in between. Gunshots. Screams. Cries. Whispers. I’ve had days when I’ve felt like I’ve saved everyone. More often than not I go home thinking that I didn’t save or help anyone. That’s the feeling that destroys me.
I’m scared, and hurt, right alongside the people that call. I can’t see what is happening but I can hear it, and I can feel it. Sometimes those feelings follow me home. The sounds of a 10 year old boy trying not to cry while his mom was battered by her boyfriend still haunt me. He has more courage than all the policemen and fireman I know. He doesn’t know it but he is the bravest person I’ve ever spoken to.
I hold my breath. I hold it every time an officer or firefighter doesn’t answer the radio. I hold my breath during every pursuit. Every house that is cleared. Every traffic stop. Every time an evacuation is ordered in a structure fire. Every PAR count. Every mayday. It’s a wonder I ever breathe at all on the job. I’m always alert, always waiting, always dreading that next phone call or mic click, it might be someone’s last.
Please have patience with me. I may sound rude, but I don’t mean it. Yes, I want that dog to quit barking as much as you do. I want that party to quiet down too. That phone call before yours though, was a mother that just lost their only child. It was a fatal car accident involving the quarterback and the homecoming queen. It was shots fired at a community gathering in the park. It was one of our own involved in a tragedy. I didn’t have time to gather my thoughts or my composure before you called and I’m still trying to process what just happened. I know you don’t care, it didn’t happen to you, you didn’t know them. I didn’t either, but I was there.Post Views: 312

Tonight my family and I had a nice spaghetti dinner and the sauce was superb and the added meat was delicious but it made me wonder. What exactly was within the meat we were eating? It made me think of a video I saw a long time ago. It dealt with something we have all eaten at least once in our lives and it’s non other than a Sloppy Joe. But what was in the meat or what was the meat?
According to legend, back in the 1930’s, a man named Joe O’Sullivan caught his wife sleeping with another man. The diner owner was so upset at his finding that he killed both of them and ground their bodies up to hide the evidence. The following day Joe invited both families to his diner where he explained that his wife and her lover had run off together. Afterward he served up the lovers on a bun with his own sauce and mentioned that this was his specialty. After the first bite his wife’s father said, “this is a little sloppy, Joe.”
After that day Joe made millions selling what became known as a “Sloppy Joe”. The murder of his wife, lover, and origin of his specialty were only revealed on his deathbed. It makes one wonder what exactly we are eating and if this story is true or not. If you really want to know something about your beef click here. This article is a good read and will make you think twice before buying ground beef from certain grocery stores and fast food joints.
Have a good night folks and thanks to JK Cinema for the excellent Urban Legends series found here. If you get hungry later you are more than welcome to have a MANWICH on me.Post Views: 209

Have you ever had the urge to give back to the community? Seth Manthei did and with that urge he added his passion for design and launched Threadsy. “It’s a t-shirt company that raises funds and awareness for charity groups,” explains Manthei in a recent podcast. According to the company’s official website, “We sell each tee for 7 days and give $7 of every product sold directly to that week’s charity.” Manthei does each design in-house and explains the process as, “right now I’m doing all the designs, their hand drawn artwork which I discovered a passion for after graduation.” He refers to his recent graduation from Full Sail University where he was named valedictorian and received a Bachelors of Science in graphic design.
Currently the company is spearheading a campaign for No Kid Hungry. According to threadsytee.com, “The No Kid Hungry campaign connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.” The site goes on to mention that, “this week, every purchase will help provide up to 70 meals for one hungry child.” Manthei and his company are currently filling up their weekly schedule with new charities to assist with funding and awareness. For more information on Threadsy and what you can do to help, follow the links below. You can also listen to the entire podcast with Manthei of Threadsy at the top of this article.
“By combining the power of art and community, we believe that we can build awareness and fund movements that support charities in their efforts to make the world a better place.” – ThreadsyPost Views: 219
