Everything you type or think is dumb! Keep typing, you are entertaining as hell! Man you sure do whine ALOT! It just sounds to me like you are jealous of them!! Could you not pass the tests or classes to do what they do? Or is it that you are to selfish to ever do anything to help someone but yourself?The current policy of paying FF for sick days not used encourages FF to come to work sick. Working sick personnel are a potential hazard to the community, fellow FF and to say nothing to the fact that they are likely more accident prone. Potentially poor decisions by sick personnel when dealing with life and death matters should not be tolerated. Time to re evaluate the current policy, including eliminatation for sick days not used and revise the sick day structure to mirror the private sector e.g. so many days per year of combined sick and vacation time on a use it or lose it basis.
Both would be my guess!!
