We all agree that ambulances play a major role in saving lives. Their task is time critical, every single second counts and in such a condition where the ambulance has been parked should not make a difference, But as it turns out, some people do care. Actually, they care a lot. Being bothered by the likes of saving someone is not really their thing but an ambulance blocking their driveway is a way more important issue.
Not only that, they left a note to send out a message loud and clear explaining how inconvenient the driving skills of the person controlling the driving seat of the ambulance is to them. Consequently, people on Twitter crossed all the stages of anger over this.
The note causally mentioned that they have parked “in a stupid place” blocking the driveway and was placed under the wiper.
The complete thoughtlessness of the note was pictured by the paramedics and then shared through a tweet with a hashtag #patentscomefirst
Sometimes we just don't know what to say. This was the note left on an ambulance today. At the time, the crew were helping a man who was extremely unwell after vomiting blood. They took him on blue lights to hospital where he was in a critical condition. #patientscomefirst ??? pic.twitter.com/RwCCVmZgrA

People on Twitter are not happy.
Would they have stuck it on a police car .. some people are so selfish and don’t think about the reason as to why a crew would have to do that.. I hope they see the posting and learn to be more respectful of a service that could save their or family/friends lives in the future

They are calling out the person for their lack of brain cells.
Wow. That’s an awesome amount of ridiculousness/stupidity wrapped up with a bow selfishness!!

Stating bitter facts in less than 280 words.
Unfortunately there are some very selfish people in this world if are more worried about their drives, than others lives.

This is what we all want to say.
You be saving lives but. But WHAT? That is where the sentence ends. Or maybe end with a thank you, you are awesome, coz you are!

And this is one thing that can be done.
That bloke is a pillock of the highest order. Next time he dials 999 tell him you can’t get to him cos his drive is blocked.

Some people had their own stories to share.
Horrendous ! Paramedics who came to my daughter fitting when she was a baby,abused by a neighbour for blocking him in ! How narrow minded !

Isn’t it sad that there are so many of them?
This is nothing! I've had someone follow me into a patient's house to have an argument with me about parking and then wouldn't let us leave scene with our resus pt until he'd got my details so he could complain!

And by them, I mean jerks.
Remember we once had a house chimney fire. End of terrace/next door neighbour more concerned firemen and hoses were 'trampling his dahlias'

Something similar happened in Berlin about a week or two ago. An ambulance was damaged and the crew attacked because they blocked a man from going to work by parking on the street next to his car while reviving a little child.

Let’s pray to God, humans can be more humans with time.
