A likely story...

Today, my boyfriend of 2 years wanted to break up because I was "kissing" another guy. That guy was 73 years old and dying of a heart-attack. I work as an Ambulance Technician and was performing CPR. FML

Is that really a relationship you want to resuscitate? Maybe you ought to hit him with the paddles. It might shock him.

I feel sorry for such a narrow minded little boy like that. Keep up the good work, my sister is a first responder and I just can't imagine this.

I love how people on FML can never take a joke.

Maybe because your so-called joke was fucking stupid!

Sounds to me like he was seeking any reason to leave, but did not to look like a jerk and wanted the reason to be about something you did wrong.

Probably best not to mention that sometimes you guys have to cut the clothes off people...

Yeah, but did you have to slip him tongue?

How about "unlikely story".... first responders don't give mouth to mouth and haven't for many years. Infectious disease brought respirators to the ambulance.

Exactly my question. Why would she be giving mouth to mouth? Even non-professionals are trained to use chest compression only if they don't have a mask to use.

Its possible she had a mouth to mask device but her bf has only seem overly dramatic movies and assumed thats what she was doing.

OP did not specify when the incident happened, so there is a possibility that it happened when she was off duty. Chest compressions were initiated, but sometimes it isn't enough to get someone back.

Actually, we still use mouth covers. And, yes, resuscitation breaths are still necessary, just not nearly as important as the chest compressions.

When he saw you doing that, you took his breath away.

So, Did he make it? Heat attack, not the most pleasant experience.

Sorry, heart*

Thats not why he broke up with you. That was just a way out
