"Thin people have sore backs too!" Yeah, from lifting your fat arse.

We can fix that. We'll just leave the fats where they are. If they need CPR, I have a solution for that too.

Not getting CPR might put them in starvation mode.

I'm shocked someone 350 pounds made it to 70. HAES works everyone. Let's go home!

Probably a fat old person, not an old fat person. Big difference.

I doubt that they weighed that much for the majority of their life. The obesity crisis has hit these new levels in the last 20 or so years. They were probably either human sized or smallfat (hate that word) rather than deathfat up until after they were 60, more than likely. It would be extremely unlikely for them to have reached 70 years of age had they maintained that weight from early adulthood onwards

Maybe you just need more training on how to do your job properly and be inclusive, understanding and positive toward of the needs of a wide array of body types... /s

Just kidding... sorry to hear of more fat related encroachment... If they refuse to die, you could always troll them by pretending to call the local soap factory and negotiate a sale price for the blubber while they lie incapacitated for a cheap laugh..

This makes me so mad on your behalf. You guys spend all day saving lives, you shouldn't have to get your health wrecked by someone who clearly doesn't give a shit about theirs.

Just remember: Their fat doesn't affect you.

With more people becoming obese expect these calls to become more and more frequent and get to the gym. Learn to deadlift at least 500 pounds or else you will not make it.

Does anyone here know whether workplace safety law is being broken by this sort of thing? Where I am employers are required to protect their workers safety whether the workers want them to or not (so they can't be pressured into unsafe working conditions), and doing those kinds of lifts unaided other than for sporting purposes would be a clear violation in any other workplace.

Yes, but like with most things, what actually happens is different. In reality, these guys, and our nurses, often have no choice. They have to lift without theven extra help

Luckily the fire department responds to everything with us. So we have 5-8 people to help lift each call. Unfortunately, it still isn't enough all the time.

I applaud you for even going through with that kind of job. I'm a nurse manager and although I don't lift them I have to talk them out of every grievance they intend to file on my staff members who can barely lift them and refuse to lift them without assistance. I have tried educating them on their health and the risks they pose to themselves and my staff and they always respond with , "I'm the sick one! I wouldn't be here if I had any other choice." Bitch, Shut your fucking mouth. If you did that more times than not, then you wouldn't be here.
