Their? And you called someone else "stupid." Try "THEY'RE," stupid.

Just to make a point, the guys that are volunteer fire fighters have regular jobs that they have to go to everyday. They have to make money to pay their bills. The word volunteer tells you that they do not get a penny for what they do for our community. They get called out at all hours to fight fires or rescue people in accidents. But get very little appreciatiation for this service. So the comments made of them running you off the road may be because they were on their job and left it possibly loosing pay to go try to save someone's house. The comment about being in strike just means that we just simply dont have enough volunteers in the community any longer for you to see them as much. By the way I'm not on the fire department I'm not a wife either. But I'm proud of the volunteers in my community that care enough to try to help us when we need them.

My comment about the Volunteer Firefighters being on strike was just a smartazz response. I know they volunteer for that dangerous and sometimes thankless job of trying to put out fires and save lives. It wasn't a serious comment.
