Emblazoned on the side of an ambulance I just saw. Any takers for the suicide squad?

I was considering becoming a paramedic but I'd have to do more A-levels to get on a full three-year university course and then take a lower salary. I wish I would've considered it back when I was younger and was doing linguistics with no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I think I have the right disposition for it and I might do it in the future if money stops being so important.

Absolutely do not become a paramedic, it's a shite job and you work with just the worst people and by 45 you'll be a mass of injuries held together with fat.

...or a florist (flowers smell nicer than corpses). I remember early on, during the first lockdown, meeting the local florist, who seemed more alarmed by it all than others, as she was able to get a rough idea of the number of locals deaths via her sales. Clearly business was up.

This is the exact same post I could make except adding that I am now too old - unless they have changed things since I rang them in 1997 to ask about training. Was from a landline and everything.

jfjnpxmy's post doesn't even put me off as that's happened anyway.

This is true, sadly.

I've a few para mates, and everything they say just suggest the council and social services use you as a grease trap for vulnerable and sick people.
