Please, Firemen, Show Us Some Respect

For the second day in a row, my bus this morning was delayed by a fire truck in the middle of the road. In neither case was the truck fighting a fire; in both cases, all the firemen were standing around watching the traffic their truck had stopped.

Look, I know that firemen are heroes. Their whole job is to put themselves in danger to save our lives and property. That is awesome. We owe them gratitude and appreciation. But when they’re not in emergency mode, is it that hard for them to show the rest of us a little respect?
