yes mate... 99% of the time i know whats the case is about.
And thats the official answer...:thumbsup:
So i cant expect a PM with the details... how annoying lol. Interesting job still.
Ever been responsible for the bodies that we may have heard about on the news? like the two girls in reading etc?
yep.... quite a few... the kid that fell out a window a couple of weeks ago in spain, erm... some bloke a couple of months ago got bitten by a snake in usa. there are some cases i cant say about for dumb **** legal reasons. some 1 will sue me!! lol
Course I am, it's too good a job to go round bending the rules and risking my crappy wage....lol
My Uncle was part of a team in the Army during the worst of the troubles in the 70's, part of who's job was to "retrieve" as much as possible of bomb blast victims. He hated the job and never spoke of it to anyone, and after he left the army, refused pointblank for over 30 years to return here to Northern Ireland. So my mum hardly seen her sister in that time unless she went to visit them.
Finally in 2001 my Aunty persuaded him to come back over and visit family. And he loved it. In the four years following the first visit, we seen them more times than the previous 30 years.
I know a lot of people in the emergency services and that type of job deal with their jobs with humour, but my uncle found it very hard to deal with.
rather you than me,a few mates are old bill/firemen and they all say the same thing..dehumanise the corpse then you won't have any emotion as its only a piece of meat (very much like Pork)
Wow thats some job you have there Alpine, I doubt many could do what you do , me being one. Fair play to ya and the fact that you enjoy it... well erm I dunno if that means you have balls or are just a weird bugger lol
oh... what a great thread to start my friday morning...
I have a REAL problem with seeing my own blood, which normally leads to me prone on the floor. Dont think this would be in my 'search for a job' catagory either... props to you Alpine you crazy dude! Definately a good to talk about job for sure!
I know this may be your job but I dont think you talking about this on a public forum is the right thing to do especially when that person meant alot to someone. If I did your job and had to pick up your mum and her body parts and complain about the smell would you like me broadcasting it to the world?
with all due respect mate... i have not said no names, places, or any other info that mite give away as to whom this maybe. ok a rare case perhaps but there is no proof to any indiviual connection to this thread.
Sorry if i have offended any 1 in any way.
(an i aint be sarcastic as i usually am)
and there are some assumptions that that person meant a lot to someone.
Who's to say that they werent getting their 'just deserts'?
Alpines not posted any identifiers other than it was 3 parts.
I see what your trying to say... just dont think it was needed.
prob a mix of the both Z82!! lol
you have weird balls?!?! UURGHH!!
lol.... (cops a feel)......
.................................needs a second opinion.....
goes to the old lady next door...................
leave my winky alone old lady!!
ok.. youve just took that to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL!!
<< that smily looks a bit gay, but I cant be arsed to go find a granny smiley
well that explanes the weirdness part....
this is what normal balls look like right??

i will refraim from talkin about naughty bits.
lol on reading this, fair play to you alpine m8. Interesting job.
Lottie - you need help home girl lmao!!!
Dehaumanising a body is the only way of dealing with these things, ATEOTD it's a body, meat/bones etc, it's not a person anymore, the person isn't there he/she is gone.
That's how I deal with it..........
yeah me too... thats the thought I was trying to hold at my pops funeral. I think I lasted about 20 mins before I started crying like a baby!
indeed mate... cant be looking at them as a person anymore. would not be able to do the job otherwise.
