  • Funny acronyms

    I appologize if this is out of place and not posted at the right time, but I feel like making a few giggles. Its good to laugh, especially during an emotional time like this. So here goes, and don't take it personally, Im just trying to spread some joy.

    Acronyms are funny, especially the ones I have. Well, thats to be debated but here is a list on my favorites. Feel free to add to the list.

    CHAOS - Chief Has Arrived On Scene

    EMT - Extra Man on the Truck

    ECA - Equpiment Carrying A** hole

    TMB - Too Many Birthdays (old folks home)

    NFPA - No FUC*ing Practical Application

    Survive Air - Surprise Air (because its is a 'surprise' when air comes out of the second stage regulator)

    PIERCE - (the R is silent)

    OK so I dont have alot. But at least one of them had to crack a smile. Keep your heads up and continue to do the job you are paid (or not) to do. The last thing I want the crap eating people who did this is to see us down and out. And for Gods sake call your mother. This is twice as hard on them as it is on us.

                    Some people are like slinkies, not really good for anything but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

                    Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.
