Thank You Note And Money Left On Ambulance Blocking Driveway Has The Internet Cheering

Some people can’t seem to stand paramedics saving lives around the world. 

There has been a string of negative notes left on ambulances in the past year or so. The reason? Paramedics block driveways and use private or reserved parking spaces in the midst of tending to emergencies.

How dare they? Paramedics must have some nerve, doing everything in their power to save lives and whatnot.

Back in November 2017, a group of paramedics rushed to help a man who was vomiting blood. 

Someone left a note on the ambulance, writing:

You may be saving lives but don’t park your van in a stupid place and block my drive.

In February 2018, a woman named Kirsty Sharman was fined after swearing at paramedics in a nasty note. She wrote: 

If this van is for anyone but Number 14 then you have no right to be parked here. I couldn’t give a shit if the whole street collasped. Now move your van from outside my house.

The ambulance was attending to one of her neighbors, who was having difficulties breathing. 

There was a similar incident in May but, this time, someone threatened to smash an ambulance because it was in their private parking space. During the World Cup, fans vandalized and almost destroyed an ambulance in London as a random — and criminal — act of celebration after England beat Sweden. 

Needless to say, paramedics have gotten used to being threatened and abused for attempting to help people.

When a group of paramedics received a positive, heartwarming note from a citizen commemorating them, it had quite an impact.

Paramedic Dewi Lloyd, of Flintshire Ambulances in Wales, shared the note on social media:

Thank you for blocking my driveway to save a life. Refreshments on me.

The anonymous author of the note included £5 for the hardworking paramedics to grab a cold one after doing their duties. 

Twitter loved the generous gesture:

Since nice notes tend to be the exception, fellow paramedics noted that the few they do get mean a lot:

Well done, good upstanding citizen. And, of course, thank you to the paramedics who continue to save lives!
