“We just don’t know what to say”: Paramedics stunned by note left on windshield

WEST MIDLANDS, England — Paramedics in England were shocked when they got back to their ambulance after helping a patient.

West Midlands Ambulance Service tweeted the photo of the note on Friday, which read “You may be saving lives but don’t park your van in a stupid place and block my drive.”

Paramedic Natasha Starkey said the situation was “TIME-CRITICAL.”

Starkey toold BBC News such notes are not uncommon.

“It’s not always notes. Sometimes it’s actually, we’re in the middle of cardiac arrest in someone’s house, for example, and people will, not even neighbors, just random people will walk in and say, ‘can you move your ambulance?’ And it’s not always as polite as that,” Starkey said. “Patients come before you wanting to leave your house, so it’s just what we have to do.”
