I went interstate on my days off and ended up catching up with a couple of "ambulance drivers" from another state. The uniform is a different colour but the call-outs are the same. We drank coffee and they matched my massive catastrophic shaving cut story with the "not brave enough to pull off own band-aid" story. We went back and forth knowing the saddest part about a bunch of paramedics telling stories is the complete lack of need to embellish. Its the same all over the world.
