For the second time, I've been creeped the fuck out by someone trying to flirt with me while onduty. You can read about the first time here- http://i-am-911-archive.blogspot.com/2005/04/flirty-old-guy.html
We were sent to a call where the person fell. As we're dealing with our patient, getting information for our report, etc, this Creepy Old Guy walks up behind me.
COG: I think I might be feeling faint and need some CPR.
Awesome Medic (my partner): You're gonna have to get in line.
COG: No, I want her to do it **motioning towards me**
Ummm, what?! Ok, not only is your attention not wanted or welcomed, I'm dealing with a patient! You're interfering with my scene you old perv!
I know I had a look of fear, confusion, irritation, and more on my face. The patient and her friend seemed to sympathize judging by the looks they gave me. I was able to bite my tongue and thankfully, the guy wandered off immediately.
As we were returning to our truck to leave, I asked AM if he saw COG's shirt. Sadly, he didn't.

More like 5 at a time.
I can't make this shit up, folks.
Later in the shift, we'd responded to a call where a very nice older gentleman accidentally flipped his scooter and more than likely broke his hip. We moved him to a backboard as gently as we could and tried to pad under his knees to keep him comfortable.
As we cleared the call, I realized it was getting late and I was ready for dinner. Seeing as A.M. had already eaten, I figured on hitting Subway. 10 minutes before closing, they were locked up tight. I was really looking forward to a meatball marinara too.
Being in a nicer part of town and so close to a major mall, there aren't a lot of food options under $10, McD's here I come.
As I'm walking towards the Walmart entrance (McD's is just inside), an older gentleman who had stopped his car to let an older woman get in, called me over. He reached out to shake my hand and said "Thanks for doing what you do and God bless."
I'd noticed his FBI hat as I'd exited my truck moments earlier, but that doesn't really matter. It was a small gesture of thanks, and it made my day.
