Hatzala guy demands his slushie!

I have the utmost respect for Hatzalah guys. They do a fantastic job and save many lives. But when i'm waiting in line patiently in line for pizza on a Saturday night, they should wait like everyone else. This guy in a yellow hatzalala walks in and comes up next to me this past Saturday night and starts asking the worker for a slushie. So, i ask him who he is asking, he goes to me 'do you mind if i cut you for a slushie', im like 'yeh, i mind'. Wait in line like everyone else. All i wanted was a slice of pizza, wheres my special privileges? Well, if he had some one waiting in the back of the ambulance who needed a slushie and his/her life depended on this slushie, then i would've gladly had let him cut me. I doubt that was the case and therefor he must wait the 5 minutes like everyone else.
I never had a police officer cut me at a dunkin donuts, maybe they are more respectful. That yellow jacket doesnt give them extra privileges every where. And dont get me started when they abuse theur sirens to go thru traffic and red lights so they can rush back to their garage or to mincha, or when their wives are behind the wheel and taking advantage of the sirens. Again, I am grateful for them and they do an awesome job.

Too damn cold for slushies now, son.

I guess he was shzulby, then he might be hot from all the layers of fat.

he wasn't acting nice, but i would cut him some slack, after all he is doing a great service of saving lives, hatzoles nefoshes work and he is a volunteer, he doesn't even get paid

Perhaps he didn't think that he deserved special treatment just because he was in Hatzoloh. Maybe you just looked at his jacket and assumed that was why he had no manners. Maybe the fact that he had no manners had nothing to do with his being in Hatzoloh. If that's the case, be happy that he is at least productive.

Just the opposite--BECAUSE you are wearing a Hatzala jacket you should be MORE considerate of the people around you. They do incredible work and I am very haapy they are around but if you'r 'cutting' to the front on ANY line make sure you ask the people behind you if it's ok.

Most hatzolah guys don't abuse their sirens. Honestly, I don't think the cutting you in line has anything to do with "hatzolah guys" in general, just this one guy.

PLus, how many times have you actually seen cops in Dunkin Donuts besides for in the movies?
