    Another word of advice: stick to what you say. Editing and deleting posts will get you a bad rep around here pretty quick.

    Word of advice kid- If ********, *****, and ***** knew you were coming on here and crying instead of going through your unified chain of command with your grievances, they would probably be pretty ****ed.

    EDIT: Point proven to the Original Poster. Names redacted at his request.

    The person who was assigned the task instead of you.

    Live and learn.

    Bingo!

    If I would have said no to the junior firefighter I probably wouldn’t have gotten slack for it.
    Just do what you're told.

    I don’t think I’m the only one wrong in this situation
    That's irrelevant. You're responsible for what you do -- not what other people do.

    Like a previous poster said I couldn’t win in this situation.
    Sure you could. All you had to do was do as you were told by the officier who assigned you to your original task.

    And you don't see what's wrong with that picture?

    The girl was orginally assigned to the job that she dumped on me.
    A word of advice: Stop trying to blame others for your own mistakes.

    Who gave you the jobs? (BTW, "the girl" isn't the problem -- don't look for excuses.)

    Sounds to me like you need to step back, take a deep breath and relax a little. If you were "breaking out in a sweat that was soaking through your shirt" at an open house then you are trying too hard.

    Don't take this personally as it's only meant as constructive criticism. Sometimes over-eager recruits can be a P.I.T.A. As officers we want a person whom we can delegate a task to and not see\hear from that person until the task is done. We want someone who can figure out on their own how to complete that task.

    I understand conflicting orders can be confusing but get used to it because it will happen. There are ways for you to deal with it.

    If you're primary job is to operate the ball throwing table and, for whatever reason the ball throwing table was left unattended then you didn't do your job. If you left the table it better had been for something far more important.

    Say you're at a fire scene and you are instructed to secure utilities. While looking for the breaker panel a second officer asks you to deploy a ladder. What do you do?? In my opinion you should tell the second officer that you already have an assignment and are unavailable. Unless deploying the ladder is a life\death matter then the second officer needs to find someone else. The first officer is expecting the utilities to be secured and won't know that you've been re-directed. This can be dangerous. The first officer doesn't want to have to explain to you where the utilities are, how to secure them and whether you did a good job or not. Just get it done.

    If you are instructed to perform a task that is beyond your ability then you need to say so. No shame in that while you're a probie but after time that shouldn't happen anymore.

    Being eager and hard working are good things but your officers and comrades need to be able to depend on you to complete tasks that you are assigned to.

    I don't see how doing many,many jobs at an Open House can get you booted from the department,not unless someone in the chain of command is a hopeless (jerk).I hope that you get or got a chance to explain why you were sometimes not seen where you'd been placed.
    If you do,ask for a moment of that officer's time,be respectful and don't interrupt what the Chief,Assistant Chief or LT is saying.You might miss hearing that they were just using the non-emergency occasion to see how many conflicting orders that you can take without getting too flustered to do any of them.
    It might be as simple as that or that someone just didn't get the word that you were already assigned to do anything and thought that you werer available for "as assigned duties".
    Keep working at it.You're new to the department and should look at everything as a learning opportunity.
    As PaladinKnight says,cliques are often formed,usually because the members get used to working with each other.Because you're new,you add a different component to the mix and they don't know how you'll work with them yet.
    I hope it works out for you.
