This is a question Complaining

I like writing letters of complaint to companies containing the words "premier league muppetry", if only to give the poor office workers a good laugh on an otherwise dull day. Have you ever complained? Did it work?

Complaints about th'ambulance
Some complaints that in my career I have been in contact with or had related to me:

* Woman who was wondering if the ambulances cannot use their sirens when passing her house at the end of her street when she was on night shifts.

* Man who complained that the noise the ambulance heaters made was too loud.

* Woman who complained that her boyfriend's clothes had been "ruined" by the ambulance crew who "allowed him" to vomit over them when pissed.

* Bloke who complained that we did not come out when he phoned up to order some antibiotics.

* Bloke who complained about the fact that an ambulance crew were drinking tea outside a hospital when "I pay my taxes for them to be working. They're public servants." Knobber.

* A complaint about an ambulance car being parked on an estate on standby (waiting for a call.) Complaint is mainly due to the fact that the engine is running and "increasing pollution and the estate's carbon footprint."

* Woman complained because an ambulance was blocking a road when she needed to go to work (turns out it was because of a fatal RTC involving a 15 year old lad.) When she told the crew to move, they told her no, and to go away.

* Woman complained after demanding full names and home addresses of ambulance crew, who refused to give them!

* Complainant states that call taker took too long to identify where they were, despite the fact the caller did not know the address, postcode or area they were in, and were calling from a mobile. States that the call taker should "know every road that they cover, like cabbies do."

*Complainant states that "JS and S" at (an ambulance station)y have been humiliating her and her son and the local shop keepers. She also states that they have ordered goods for 500 on her account for Littlewoods catalogue. (It should be noted that staff records reveal that no staff of those names work at that station or for the service.)

Fuckwits, the lot of them!

...gets my click of solidarity.
The biggest problem is not always the frivolous or vexatious complaints, but the manner in which management respond to them.

You mean the
apology letter that gets sent out before any investigation is even commenced, perchance?

Oh yeah...
...that and the following type off bullshit:
A colleague who had a complaint put in about his "attitude" (he'd was attending an obnoxious hangover patient straight after clearing a paediatric arrest) was approached by the complainant when he was off duty. He gets told "So you are on your final warning eh? Serves you right mate!" That's what management had told the complainant to placate him.
Total bollocks of course.

Don't want to click "I like this"
Because I don't like the twunts who make such petty complaints about a vital and overstretched service. My missus is a staff nurse and deals with similar fuckwits on a daily basis and has to fill innumerable forms in and write out statements following similarly trivial or vindictive complaints.
More power to both your elbow and your middle finger.

Why do the crew need the engine running when on standby? Sounds like it has the makings of a reasonable complaint to me

If it's cold weather, running the heater is reasonable.

Plus, you should keep the battery topped up: Equipment like the Mobile Data Terminal and Two-Way Radio all drain power. Don't assume that 'Ambulance Service owned' means properly serviced and specced vehicles.

Makes sense
So complaint retracted.

I cannot imagine
Being rude to someone who is trying to save lives. How braindead are these idiots? You shouldn't be allowed to act like a twunt and expect to be treated like royalty in return.

I think you should be able to leave the
fuckers to die. Most of the time you'd be doing the world a favour.
