I've been neglecting this blog lately, and for no particular reason. A lot has happened, and yet nothing has changed.
I started a part-time job near the end of June. The work is incredibly easy, and most of the people I work with are fun to be around. We see a lot of people on a daily basis, but it's all minor things. It's very rare that we have to call a unit in to transport anyone to the hospital. Ironically, many of our patients, are employees.
I've been sent off to fill in at other stations more times in the last month than I'd care to admit. I've also been putting up with a fair amount of BS lately. The most recent, a pratical slap in the face.
Our crew has been in some degree of turmoil since the beginning. We've had multiple captains and rookies, multiple people fired, and we are used as both a "last chance destination" and the guinea-pigs. I'm getting tired of it.
My personal turmoil is watching not only my old academy classmates, but people hired after me, being given opportunities that I'm constantly denied.
Most recently, my car was totalled and I was stuck in the hospital for over 5 hours. I'm planning to take the other driver to court over my hospital bills and such, so only time will tell how that goes.
