I AM BAD......THANKFULLY SOMEONE POINTED OUT HOW MY MIND HAD BEEN DISTRACTED BY THE FLAPPING HOSPITAL JOHNNY OF TEH PERSON ACROSS THE HALL MANEUVERING AROUND THE REST ROOM DOOR... ON A NATIONAL LEVEL THE CONCEPT IS TERRIFYING... IT HAS BEEN POINTED OUT TO ME THAT THE REASON THE DOORS OPEN THE WAY THEY DO IS BECAUSE IN A HOSPITAL THE RESTROOM IS TEH PLACE PEOPLE MOST OFTEN FALL OR HAVE SOME MEDICAL EMERGENCY REQUIRING PERSONELL TO ENTER QUICKLY FROM TEH HALL.
THE REALLY BAD PART IS THAT SOMEONE HAS STUDIED HOW EASILY PEOPLE ( ME) CAN BE DISTRACTED FROM MAKING CRITICAL JUDGEMENTS...-- I REALLY DON'T THINK THE HOSPITAL HAD ANY ULTERIOR MOTIVES IN PUTTING THOSE HINGES TOT HE REST ROOM ON THAT SIDE..... BUT IT ENABLED SOMEONE TO STUDY HOW EASILY I GOT DISTR4ACTED FROM THINKING CLEARLY...AND THAT ISA THE WORLD SHAKING CONCEPT.
THIS MAKES ARGUING About the second ammendment A WASTE OF TIME... BECAUSE IT IS THE FIRST AMMENDMENT THAT IS BEING CHALLANGED BY THE INTERNET WHICH IS FAR MORE CRITICAL. THE LACK OF AN EDITOR TO REQUIRE FACT CHECKING ON STUFF ON THE INTERNET IS TURNING OT TO BE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY... I AM DELIGHTED TO HAVE OVER 1000 EDITORS OF TEH DD WHO DO NOT HESITATE TO STRAIGHTEN ME OUT- THIS ONE WITH QUESTIONING THE HIBNGES ON TEH REST ROOM IS A PARTICULARLY EGREGIOUS ERROR ON MY PART.
THE CONCEPT IS NOT NEW... LIKE THE PICKPOCKET -- CREATE A DISTRACTION AND LIFT THE WALLET--
I HAVE IN THE PAST DAILY DOGGIES -- DISCUSSED TEH RADIO GUY WHO SAID WITH GREAT AUTHORITY THAT THE RATE OF INCREASE ( OF SOMETHING ) WAS DOWN- WITH CONCENTRATION ON THE WORD DOWN.... WHEN IN FACT TALKING ABOUT THE RATE OF INCREASE WAS TALKING ABOUT AN INCREASE IN THE FIRST PLACE....THAT WAS IN THE 1990'S ???
WASN'T THERE A BOOK ABOUT HIDDEN PERSUADERS???? ABOUT THE STUDY OF MANIPULATING THE MINDS OF SHOPPERS TO HAVE THEM RUN OUT AND BUY 2 OR 3 CARROT PEELERS -- BEFORE THE SUPPLY IS EXHAUSTED.. THAT CONCEPT HAS GOT OUT OF HAND WITH THE INTERNET.
I HAVE NOT FIGURED OUT THE ANSWER.... BUT I WILL WORK ON IT.
IN THE MEANTIMNE.... I MISSED THE 19TH DELIVERY TO GEORGETOWN FIRE DEPT... BUT ILA DIDN'T MISS---
The question is should I be calling them Firefighters or Firemen?
I’m always referring to them as My Firemen, but, a kind CP ask me to use Firefighters, as that is what they want to be call.
When I was with my Firemen/Firefighters on the 19th, I ask them what they preferred I use. Captain Dave said for 30 + years he has been known as a Fireman and really didn’t care what anyone called him, but just don’t call me late for dinner.
It seems these later years, it is now politically correct to call them Firefighters, so no lady, woman, gal Firefighter would be offended.
Jen, the lady Firefighter at the station said, “Are we going to have to correct “mankind”?
To me Firefighters seems like someone that puts out fires. My firemen are not only firefighters, but are trained in medical emergency - EMT’s.I personally experienced first hand their professional expertise, caring mannerism and thoughtfulness that I will long remember. Believe me, when they walked through my front door, I knew I was in good hands and when the doors of the ambulance were closed, all eight eyes were standing there wishing me well.
You having experienced the same, I believe you will agree with me that the Firemen are the best.
