    Nah. He'd at least have some retirement to rely on if that were the case. He's probably been non union his whole life.

    At 69 I hope to be comfortably on a fishing bank with my grandchildren. Damn falling to my death working for some :censored:.

    No kind of job for a 69 year old man to be doing.

    It wasn't a Holland trailer. It was some old swing door that somehow got the nose wall replaced with one from a Holland unit.

    Key words in your post "hope to be". That's what a LOT of members in the CSPF are saying.

    Some of it is an ego problem. Can't admit to themselves that they're getting OLD.

    I personally know some a lot older than that and are still tough as nails. If you love your job and are still strong and healthy, why not?
    Just sitting around, getting fat with nobody to talk to about what you've done all your life, is what makes you old.

    What's really F'd up about this picture is that the BODY is laying on the ground infront of that fire/EMS truck. Yeah, it's covered up but does one really think the family wants to look at this pic and see their loved one laying on the ground under a tarp?
