A police officer who had been dealing with one of the worst kind of calls anyone in the emergency services can attend – the sudden death of a baby – returned to his vehicle to find a heartless note that had been left on his windscreen.
In a tweet, @NorthWestCop said:
‘Just left Tesco. Handwritten note on the windscreen of my patrol car. ‘£100 fine for shopping on duty’.
‘If only I could tell the person who wrote it that I have just spent the last 7 hours at the sudden death of a baby.
‘I’d bought a sandwich.
‘We’re not robots. #BeKind #WoundUp’
While the idiot who left the message would not have known what this police officer had just dealt with, they should have known that he/she might be having their first break having only dealt with a call like this.
Because this is the sort of tragic event the men and women who serve in the emergency services and NHS have to deal with.
Unfortunately, this is another prime example of the disgusting attitude that some mindless morons have towards our emergency services at a time when there is already enough hate in the world.
Let’s hope that the person who wrote the message does end up seeing this and that they then reflect on the decision making processes which made them think that leaving a note like this was a ‘good’ idea.
If you are silly enough to think that the police, or any other part of the emergency services, should not be allowed to enter a shop to buy some lunch, then you are the sort of person who does not deserve to ever benefit from the courage and selfless attitude of the emergency services.
If you wrote then note, then feel free to send us a DM so that we can send your apology on to the officer who dealt with such a tragic case only to then stumble across the pathetic note that you had left for him/her.
But the chances of the ‘note leaver’ coming forward are slim because just like the trolls who lurk on social media, it is easy and spineless to hide behind a veil of anonymity.
Maybe your conscience will give you a much-needed attitude check.
But I doubt it.
Hopefully, if anyone ever sees an emergency vehicle parked outside of some shops while the crew pop inside to buy themselves some food, and they are tempted to leave a moronic note on the windscreen of the vehicle, then this article might make them think twice.
