    They sent a color blind painter to my house to figure out which of the 20 cans of paint in my basement match a wall. I can't win.

    Business people should not be designing technical solutions.

    Do not even think about banning the person who's name is on the bottom of the paycheck.

    I'm sure we can make an exception for you.

    I'm talking about the people who have never done a physical days work in their life telling the workers what they need to do and how to do it.

    The ones who were born on 3rd base and think they hit a triple...

    We call those medical students who ask to rearrange the weight room in the university gym because the big weights are in a place they don’t like. But can they ask respectfully and to your face? No, they leave passive aggressive botes taped to your office door with their phone number to call them and discuss it.

    Another of my firefighting brothers is in peril, he was injured at work. Severe concusion 6 months later he still is not even close to right. What a glamorous job, until it wrecks your life.

    Sure sounds like it he is more concerned about quality of life at this point. Young guy too early 30's.

    Damn man. Had a couple of friends get shot up pretty good. One made it back, the other guy was left disabled and never made it back. He was in his 30s as well. Sad to see.

    I was up in the Superior National Forest on a 2 week engine detail, I was there the first day of his fire career. Showed the kid some tough love city kid came a long way he has a wife and 2 young kids

    Probably one of the most considerate people I know. I was up on another detail and a prescribed fire escaped. I happened to be in charge of suppression, it was a long ****ty day for me. I went back to the cabin at about 2 am and there was a cooler with 2 beers in it for me. That meant alot to me

    Sounds like a great guy. Hard to put into words what working in those conditions does to some relationships....friends for life. I hope a neurologist can get him back living right again.

    I am going to visit him tomorrow afternoon at his house. He is like a son to me in a way. We will laugh at memories and have regrets. Will give him an update on the status of us old timers. Kinda sucks in a way I stay in touch with all the guys and I am a vault we share our issues but there are things I don't share with others.

    There was evidently 1 last red squirrel and he was wiley I could not get out any door without him bolting for a hole in a tree. Well he is dead in a trap now. I told them I would kill them all, and I will kill any that come after them too.
