Well is this just me ?

Of all the disciplined services to me ( this is where I need help) the good old Fire Services were always the most straight forward. I could never envisage anyone taking the time to comment on the gender or ethnicity of their saviour as they were thrown over the shoulder and extracted from the burning room.

Afore mentioned saviour (for me ) could be man, woman, black , brown, green or somewhere in between, I really wouldn't give a Shit as long as they knew their job, and we're strong enough to pick me up if I was knocked over by smoke inhalation.

But alas no. The recruitment drive for new heroes, has days for women and ethnic (?) only recruits. Lady from HR explained to me the service is unfortunately top heavy with strapping white males, so something has to be done.

My flabber is absolutely ghasted.

Time to get on that post Christmas diet. If God forbid one of the new ethnic females ( properly selected and of course up to the Mark of those fascist, strapping whitey white males) tries to carry me out of a burning building, I fear I could be sued for putting her back out.

Team work and professionalism, the mark of the fire service. I'm sure when the composite of the "teams" is forcibly changed to be more PC, this of course won't change..........errrrr

Now don't get me wrong, as I said at the start, as long as they were "proper" firemen, I really don't care what they look like. However, it appears their "appearance" is important, and I'm just not with the modern program.......I'm getting old.......or somat

It does not matter what you look like as long as you can polish your engine, cook a chilli, and sleep like a log, if so, yam in.

I have tried to pass myself off as a black, one parent family, dysfunctional, dyslexic, one legged, Welsh, one-eyed lesbian on probation before.

Always get an interview, but never the job.

They always notice I've got two eyes.

Back in the good old days of corruption ( can I say that ?)

The heroes would turn up to a fire and take two steps back until the home owner produced a brown packet.

The kicker was, when the fire was out, out would come their hands again. The heroes knew full well the water from their hoses was liable to cause as much damage as the fire, so you paid them to turn the damn things off.

Best volleyball players in Asia.

Gingo, just slap on a burka...winner winner, chicken dinner.

Talking to me mate, who's a Fireman, they're not allowed to go in to burning buildings half the time, because it's deemed too dangerous, and a lot of the big engines, have been replaced with little toy trucks, with a couple of buckets. They should all take up smoking, and have a good smoke, whilst waiting for the fire to die out.

Firemen are very good at having multiple occupations, they are very hardworking and creative outside of their original employment.

There are certainly a good number of full time university students who are full time firemen

Give it time and Conservative governments will have Policeman multi tasking as Fireman.

On less money.

Nothing to do with your eyes Mate, it is coz yo is old, fat and ugly. :wink:

Mind you, the Welsh bit might not help either. :lol:

Ever since 9/11 and Rescue Me, they have gone viral in the world of women and gays. I'd get myself a fireman's outfit just for the pull. Any decent looking bird can polish my Fireman's helmet any time.

BTW, Burgas fire station is full of older Surrey Fire Brigade Engines still with the livery blazoned across them, but even if they were yonks old, they'd still be better than the Russian GAZ abd ZIL based crap they have.
