Stick a fork in me...

I'm job hunting again.

To my family at the Evil Green Empire.... I'll miss you terribly.

In the last several weeks Sleepy Partner, McHottie, Quixtar Partner (recently transplanted from the Little Service That Could), and Rebel Partner have all blown the proverbial pop stand. Some of the most amazing people I've ever had the privilege to work with. And the Empire just let them go without as much as a civil conversation from management.

Today I followed suit.

I don't want to go into specifics, but when you find that a bit of your soul dies every day that you call into dispatch to let them know you're there.... It's probably time to go.

It was time to go.

So I'm job hunting. To those who remain there... Sue (who is so incredible I can't come up with a pseudo name for her), The Partner who hopes I die, Coast Guard Guy, Backwoods, Scotty Hottie, Joe Medic, Dana in dispatch, Mama dispatcher, Jodi (thanks for talking me off the cliff this morning, girl!), and everyone else who is hanging in there despite the treatment and low pay... I give you all the credit in the world. You're stronger than I am. Seriously.

To everyone I've gotten to know, either from working with them as a partner for a day, a week, or months... Or just from rubbing elbows in the ambulance bay at one of several hospitals, nursing homes, or dialysis centers... Thank you. You are a phenomenal bunch of people who have taught me volumes about what the EMS family is. We'll go to war for each other. You've proven that time and time again.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I love you guys. I hope things improve for you. I hope they realize what an amazing group of people they have.

Wish me luck.

Sometimes you gotta do it! Good for you! Good luck, although you have enough good heart to not need the luck!

Been there myself. Sometimes you just got to cut your losses.

Good luck!

Epi...Girl, you did what you had to do for you.

And for that alone, you should be proud of yourself. You will be fine and will find the right job for you.

Thinking good thoughts for you, Epi.

Find someplace that deserves you.

Being appreciated can make up for a lot of other imperfect things.
