Are you really sure you want to be a firefighter? The stress is HUGE. I mean, it might be your turn to make dinner and you could burn the meatloaf or something! My God! Why would you want to take on that kind of stress. Thank God that firehouses are equipped with comfortable living spaces with cable television, often times pool tables and video games. It would be unbearable otherwise.
Besides.....fire trucks are big, red and incredibly slow. How embarrassing to be making all that racket with sirens and fog horns and bells only to lumber down the street at a whopping 32 mph.
