      Some Senior Man advice for you: you really, really need to do the following:

      1. Get in the sink. When all the dishes are done, mop the kitchen floor and then clean the appliances. If there is not a fresh pot of coffee brewing, it is your fault.

      2. When the kitchen chores are done, get out on the apparatus floor and wash and wipe-dry the rig. Clean out the interior, give it a wipe down and clean all the glass with windex. When that is done, empty every compartment one-by-one and clean the interior of the compartments with a good cleaner. Then wipe down all the tools and equipment. Lubricate what needs lube, sharpen what needs sharpening, and paint what needs painting. If there is not a fresh pot of coffee brewing, it is your fault.

      3. When the rig is done, clean the apparatus floor. Pull the rigs outside, sweep the floor. empty the trash cans, etc. Then wash the floor. If there is not a fresh pot of coffee brewing, it is your fault.

      4. When the apparatus floor is done, go on watch and study your local as you are on watch. No TV or games or cell phones. The only computer on is the CAD computer. The only things your eyes shall be on are maps of your local and your bordering locals, and the CAD computer. If there is not a fresh pot of coffee brewing, it is your fault.

      5. After your watch is done, go study your Dept's Standard Operating Procedures, Discipline Manuals, and other Department-related materials. When those are studied and you know them cold, then study your IFSTA Basic Firefighting Manual or Firefighter 1. If there is not a fresh pot of coffee brewing, it is your fault.

      When all that is done....Maybe.....Just maybe......I may allow you back into the Kitchen for a break and I may allow you to watch TV for 20 minutes. After that you can work on the living quarters. Do you happen to know the term "Field Day?" If there is not a fresh pot of coffee brewing, it is your fault.

      In other words kid, SHUT THE FUCHK UP AND DO YOUR FUCHKING JOB YOU ENTITLED, ELITIST LITTLE *****! EARN YOUR FUCHKING BONES!! WHEN YOU HAVE A FEW YEARS ON THE JOB THEN YOU HAVE EARNED THE RIGHT TO BITCH!!! UNTIL THEN YOU ARE NOTHING BUT AN UNORGANIZED GRABASSTIC PIECE OF SCHIT! If there is not a fresh pot of coffee brewing, it is your fault.
      My Psychology of Firefighting professor said that hazing in the form of assigning menial or repetitive tasks to probationary or otherwise new to the house firefighters is completely unacceptable and damaging to their fragile psyches. Duties such as washing dishes, cooking, mopping the floors, cleaning the apparatus, maintaining the tools, etc. are to be shared equally and equitably between all members of the company or station regardless of their rank or seniority. The health instructor stated that caffeinated beverages such as coffee, colas, Mountain Dew, etc. should not be consumed before, during, or after strenuous physical activities such as firefighting or training as they may cause or accelerate dehydration and increase heart rate. excessive carbohydrates such as sugar should be avoided as well. The only coffee I will make is decaf and 100% fruit juice for the rest of you.

        Okay, this post proves this guy is either the biggest AZZ hole ever to grace these pages or a troll. Either way the quicker we stop feeding him the quicker he will take his roadshow and go home.

        Buh bye ****** bag.

              Well, any semblance of credibility you had just went right straight out the window... Even if that was intended to be tongue-in-cheek...

His beef doesn't appear to be with just one guy. He now has another thread in which he indicates that department doesn't know what apparatus it should be running. In his own words it is a "major paid city department". They must have a clue about SOMETHING.
                  How is he different from LAFE? He claims experience based upon his years as a volunteer that gets few if any response. Since you believe experience trumps academia, can we discount LAFE's articles for Fire Engineering and his speeches at FDIC?

                  Seems only fair.
                  They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

                  I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

                    Oh look, is anyone surprised this troll is supporting another troll? I'm not. They are cut from the same cloth.

                      I see no reason to discount LAFE's articles or presentations. A recognized authority has deemed them to be worthy.

                      LAFE probably has about a three decade head start on this kid when it comes to the fire service.

                      LAFE appears to be very realistic about what his departments can and can't do. This kid is a stranger to reality.

                        From what I've read, he has a three decade head start on being a fraud.

                            We used to call them the 30-30's. No offense to the owners of the venerable Winchester 1894.

                            30 days on, but act like 30 years.
