  1. I agree with you Dwayne, wayyyyyy to many old fat guys like us in EMS as a whole not just on here. There are a couple hybrid classes like that here in Kansas as well as distance learning programs as well. They have had mixed success both with pass rates as well as quality of the medic produced. I have personally precepted for one program that I will never precept for again. EMTchick, Good luck read and be active in the forums. Ask questions as often as you need, Remember there are no stupid questions. You will get out of your program exactly what you put in to it. As with most all of the others in the city I am happy to help in anyway i can. Race EDIT- Ohhhh and Welcome Back
  3. Absolutely Richard, I have suggested all of the academies to her, The object of my affection's daughter is planning to attend West Point. My daughter however is planning to follow the family tradition as closely as possible.We are a Marine family and since the Marines do not have a medical division, Navy will have to do! LOL... Race
  4. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...... I LOVE IT !!!!!! Better than sending the Little sister along !!!! Agreed Dwayne, i have encouraged my daughter towards med school should she want to go in to health care. So far she is planning on going to the Naval Academy at Annapolis and letting the Navy pay for school ... I LOVE my daughter !!!!!
  5. Scrat, thats awesome !!!! I think i may have to update it as i am not old enough to have been in the rice patties outside Hanoi ... HAHAHAHA Not a lot to tell Bern. Sometimes a father just can not let go and she, they , you .. will have to wait until she is 18 or out on her own. I am sure he is having difficulty and thinks that the 20yr old instructor used his position to take advantage of his innocent little girl nothing will change that unless your instructor friend can convince the father in question that his intentions are honorable. Nothing you or anyone else can do except them, and most specifically him. thats my take Race
  6. Excellent answer !!!!!
  7. Yes by all means I totally agree and my daughter shares your daughters concern/fears of what i will be willing to do if i do not like him ! LOL
  8. Naw, Most of my oldest girls "boyfriends" are scared of me when they see me ... so that usually works best for the moment. my little one is only 9 so she is still my babygirl .. LOL
  9. I am very dedicated to my work. I wear Paramedic/EMS shirts every day, even when I'm not on duty. The EMS station is my second home, and my second family. It often seems as if my life revolves around the EMS department, but it means nothing compared to my little girl. I am normally a very friendly person, but if you hurt my little girl you will make me mad. I know my little girl is growing up, even if I don't like it. She seems to like you, so I'll tolerate you dating her, but here are a few things for you to think about while you're with her: First of all, I go into hostile situations to save people that I've never even seen before, you can't imagine how protective I am of my little girl. I once broke a man's sternum by accident while doing CPR to save his life. If that's how I help people what do you think I do when I'm pissed off? I know who investigates arson fires. They know exactly what clues to look for to prove it was arson, so they also know what not to look for should I mention anything... and I know where you live. I've worked more car accidents than you'll ever see, the sight of blood doesn't bother me one little bit. It's normal for me to IV catheters, Syringes, paralytics and extremely strong sedatives in my car.. Touch my little girl and me and you take a little ride. When my firefighter friends burn down a house for training, nobody ever looks in the closets. I use the jaws of life to tear doors off wrecked cars. They cut though solid metal like a hot knife through butter. So watch your paws or get the jaws. Sirens and air horns can really muffle the sounds of someone screaming. Most of my friends are cops, paramedics, or firefighters. WE ARE 911. If you make me mad who do you think you're going to call for help? I have access to explosives. I am well trained in emergency medicine. I know exactly which arteries are the easiest to sever and which ones bleed the most. (Remember the Medical training, IV catheters, Syringes and drugs!?!) Even though my little girl insists that you are a "nice guy" and not like most other guys, I know better. I was once your age, I know EXACTLY what you're thinking. Because of that I already have plenty of reasons to not like you. It wouldn't take much at all to push me over the edge, and I just stocked my med kit. So if you want to date my little girl you better keep these things in mind. Medics are protective by nature, and there is nothing we are more protective of than our little girls. Whenever you're alone with her, you better remember that someday you may be alone with me! (I modified this from "Dating a Firefighter's Daughter" I am having this printed on a nice paper and framed for both of my girls ) Race
