Good suggestions

In the event you find yourself in the back of an ambulance, here are some suggestions:

-No matter how many times you ask if you can drive, we won't let you.

-It's NOT ok to play with all the switches in the back.

-The phone mounted in the ambulance is not for you to use to call your friends and say "Hey, guess where I am right now!"

-Defibrillators hurt, even if it is just your leg, so don't make us mad.

-It is not necessary, as a bystander, to stand by the paramedics and yell, "Nothing to see here folks, move along!" as they are treating patients.

-It is unnecessary to use the phrases "10-4" and "Roger That" when talking in person to the paramedics.

-Paramedics do not think it's funny if you lie down in the gurney and zip yourself into a body bag. You won't think it's funny either when the zipper gets stuck.

Grabbing your chest and pretending to have a heart attack isn't funny. It wasn't funny the first 1,000 times I saw some nitwit doing it, so 1,001 isn't going to make it funny.

Just saying.
