Re: Best Boots

Haix are a really good choice but if you can get away with it, try Blundstones out.

Blundstones have been the best by far and still after 5 years in this pair, they are still comfortable but showing wear now on exterior.

Re: Cops VS Fireman..the reality.

Lol. You think i signed up here to tell you " how hard we work or how we earn our salary". .. sigh .. I wear both uniforms (per say) blue and red. I'll go back to just using this forum for info purposes, and not arguing in a mob mentality sort of way. Stay safe out there, regardless of uni...

Re: Cops VS Fireman..the reality.

No, but having an explanation as to why you think they are overpaid is. Having an explanation for why I think firefighters are overpaid is related to my feelings about my career? I don't see how this follows. Sure. It means your miserable in your own current situation/salary that you feel the need ...

Re: Cops VS Fireman..the reality.

And if you think we are all sleeping peacefully for 8, 10 or 12 hours etc .. you are wrong. With call volumes way up, we are lucky to catch a few zzzz's between calls. Police are no different, catching zzzz's. Hiding in the parks, or commercial areas or behind the fire stations .. The key word you ...

Re: Cops VS Fireman..the reality.

I don't think fire fighters should make as much as police. If they all had to be paramedics as well, they would have a better argument. I don't understand why medics make less than the fire fighters. It seems upside down. Most of them start off working part-time, too. They could pay fire fighters $...

Re: Cops VS Fireman..the reality.

I work part-time time as a security guard, and at our site we also have "fire prevention officers". Some of them have been hired by fire departments, yet they still show up to work here. One guy has been doing this for almost 3 years. What's the issue with whatever someone chooses to do w...

Re: Cops VS Fireman..the reality.

Meh, sorry I read more than I post .. regardless of how long one has been here, gives them no right to assume what one thinks or does in their career.

Carry on ..

Re: Cops VS Fireman..the reality.

Really though.... Police/Fire... why the rivalry? 'Two completely different jobs. I'd argue they're BOTH suffering from an over inflated view of their worth... As we all do. It isn't so much a rivalry as simple animosity. We dislike them because they insist their worth is the same as ours and there...
