My friend Too Old to Work, Too Young To Retire lays the smackdown on the younger EMS generation and their work ethic (or lack thereof). The money quote:
Chivalry might not be dead, but it’s not working tonight.
I ROFL'ed at that one, and I'm adding it to the many lines I've stolen from my friend over the years.
At the risk of sounding like an old guy myself – and TOTWTYTR was a veteran when I was a rookie – I've noticed the same thing myself with the under-thirty set. So is it a generational thing, or the type of people we're attracting to EMS these days?
