I stopped in the breadstore this morning for Elijah's snowballs and my loaves of Healthy Choice 7 Grain and there were four city firefighters going store to store double checking contact numbers, etc. with the employees. The left adead of me as I checked out and the lady who rang up my stuff watched them go with a wistful expression. "They could stay all day," she said with a little grin.
I suggested she may have to crank up the air conditioning in the building.
What is it with firefighters? What ARE the true requirements? Are there checkboxes on the application form that read "HOTTIE" and "SUPER FINE?" If a guy can't check those, sorry, he's doomed to work elsewhere.
Having worked customer service in the past I know from first hand experience that all the girls in the backrooms phone each other and run to gawk when the firemen are doing their grocery shopping.
Tip: Firefighters are the best source for directions when you're lost. They do push-ups until they know the hundred block of every city street. Talk is they cook pretty well, too.
