When winds start to pick it, people start thinking, or maybe they stop, you’ll get to judge based on the following story:
Our guess is that since the rope wasn’t holding him stationary, the wind could provide lift. But, what goes up must come down, and he did. Maybe next time when it’s windy try to go to the park to fly a kite or do a little bit of parasailing. It sounds a lot safer.
At Least He Got Caught
Waking up at three in the morning because of a fire alarm must be a pretty common occurrence when it comes to cities, but for this story, the trucks pulled up to a building that didn't have any fire whatsoever.
The robber probably thought he had the luckiest break of his life until he realized that the police would also respond to fire alarms. We can imagine he left the building carrying a television but didn't get very far.
There Better Be a Fire Next Time
As this list tells us, firefighters get called in for all sorts of things. They're probably all too happy to not have to deal with dangerous fires every single day. But when someone bothers the fire department because she simply couldn't use her nose to breathe... not many people would call that an emergency.
When the firefighters arrived they found a woman who...couldn't breathe through her nose. They told her they could take her to the hospital, but that was all. She didn't want to go to the hospital, so they left, probably muttering to themselves and shaking their heads.
Must Have Been One of Those Compact Cars
A fire department once got a call that a three-year-old girl had been hit by a truck. There were injuries. They raced to the scene and started sizing things up, only to get what might have been a wonderful surprise!
The motor vehicle in question was a small matchbox truck that her brother had thrown at the girl. There was an injury – the girl was bleeding from the forehead. We also wonder if the paramedics were able to give the little boy something to make him feel better after the awful punishment he very likely got.
That's Why These People Train
What does this mean exactly? Let us explain the details to you: Spraying that much moisture at such heat creates a whole lot of steam and fog, making it hard to see what you're aiming at. This guy developed a reputation for directing the powerful hose at those that don't require it.
In one case, a barn fire, he knocked a hose team down twice, soaked twenty to thirty firefighters, and even sprayed a whole bunch of bystanders. Well, hopefully, he gets better at it as he uses it.
