Emergency workers have returned to their ambulance to a ‘nasty’ note left on their vehicle criticising their parking.
The team from South Central Ambulance Service in the UK returned to their vehicle to a note on their windshield and they were not impressed.
“Dumbass, you are fully blocking my driveway!” the note left on the windshield of the life-saving vehicle read.
Sadly, Zoe & Chris came back to this note in Lymington, Hampshire, today. It’s not always possible to park without obstructing traffic flow or driveways as parking further away could add minutes to our arrival time that the patient simply doesn’t have #DontAbuseOurStaff pic.twitter.com/xVLap5rv37— SCAS (@SCAS999) November 27, 2019
Moderators for the service posted an image of the note on Twitter with the hashtag ‘Don’t abuse out staff’.
“It’s not always possible to park without obstructing traffic flow or driveways as parking further away could add minutes to our arrival time that the patient simply doesn’t have,” the Twitter post read on November 27.
Considering an ambulance is usually attending to a medical emergency, responders on Twitter were shocked by the note.
“Better than having a fully blocked airway,” one person responded.
“The mind boggles at such lack of empathy and patience,” another person said.
Some people described the note as “disgusting to see” while another wondered what the person who wrote the note would do if they were in the opposite situation.
“Let’s hope they do not require the emergency services, ‘I’m sorry I was late I had to park the ambulance in a parking space’” they wrote.
