» "You're doing it wrong"

Having spent a day refelting a shed
with the "help" of my 4 year old nephew, my brother later discovered him playing with his bob the builder saw and hammer hitting things and muttering "for fucks sake"...

I'm a member of the local Mountain Rescue Team
so have been involved in rescuing many people from various places some in better health than others. We are all volunteers and have to raise the money to run the team which is about £30k per year.Some of our fund raising is through bucket collections in the local town centre and outside supermarkets. For some reason it seems that little old ladies are the most generous group, they are also the most likely to stop to chat. Mostly, this is along the lines of "You do great work" or "You rescued my friend/ brother/daughter".

However, some have a slightly different tale to tell.

Recently one came up to me and put a £20 note in the bucket the conversation went something like...
"Thank you very much, that was very generous."
"Well, you were called out for my husband."
"Really? and how is he?"
"Oh, he was dead."
"Oh I'm sorry..."
"Oh no, he was pissed, so he was happy and now he's gone, I'm very happy."
"Er...Right... Thanks again!"

I'm now in a Mountain Rescue team.
and would offer this piece of advice.

If you are ever so injured/ incapacitated as to need to be stretchered off and there is no helicopter available, there is a good chance that you will be offered an opiate based painkiller (morphine). You will also be offered an anti emetic to reduce nasuea.

Please, please, please take both. There is nothing more distressing for casualty and stretcher team than someone strapped onto a stretcher having to be turned upside down to be sick, because no matter how "hard" you are being stretchered down a hillside when you can only see sky (or my scary beard) when you are dosed up to the eyeballs is a nauseating as the worst seacrossing ever.

One day I would like to ride on the zero g "vomit comet" aeroplane just to see if it is worse. But I doubt it.
