Today, my wife was complaining she always has to put up the Christmas tree. So this year while she was out shopping, I decided to put it up. I set it too close to the fireplace and it caught fire. I'm a firefighter. FML

Well... If he is a firefighter shouldn't he have just taken the fire out on the spot?

well if the fire called a hit on his house don't you think i'd send its most lethal fire?

I don't think... I'm a delicious green fruit.

shouldn't the correct way of saying it be, "too close to the fire."

OP was calling himself an idiot. Firefighters are supposed to be the most knowledgeable about fire safety.

Firefighters are all pyromaniacs one way or another.

I think maybe it's time fir this guy to find a new JOB if he does not know that putting a tree up that close to a fire place will indeed set the tree on fire maybe firefighting is not meant for him lol

I HAVE A CADAVER! So, Is OP what one would call a "fire retardant" ???

Sure did put the Christmas tree up. made it shine.

I dont care to have a dumb firefighter on my arm ;) As long as they are the real deal and not one of those fat old volunteer type. Or a doctor. Scrubs can be cute too. Or a cute police officer or.... Ah, Im a sucker for uniforms lol But Ill just stick with my cute Asian boyfriend :) Sex shops have outfits for guys, dont they? Just kidding hehe

we fat volunteer types risk our lives everyday without compensation and I take offense to that I have lost a lot of volunteer brothers due to line of duty deaths so think about what you say before you need one of us fat volunteer types that aren't the real deal. we all have the same exact training as the paid guys except they clearly are paid.

23- I think she meant it in a more sexual way... but I can also see how it would seem offensive towards you and other volunteers. I appreciate you doing what you do though. most people wouldn't volunteer to risk their lives. thank you.

23- if you're as good as them & get the same physical training, why are they so hot when you're not? and why aren't you getting paid? I mean if you're as qualified then why aren't you hired? so how do you make a living? I thank you for volunteering on behalf of my fellow humans. I would appreciate you saving my life any day. I respect you but I would not sleep with you. (I think that's what she meant)

I Just put out a fire today. I'm a volunteer. I do it for the fun and to help my community. and most volunteers have real jobs. you don't have shifts in a volunteer department. so you have your own life. but when my pager goes off I can go to the situation. myself, I'm twenty and go to school full time and work as a pharmacy technician. so us volunteers have our own lives. =]
