Long day yesterday. Got to work around 6:30am and finally headed home around 10:00pm. Temps broke 100 for the 24th or 25th day in a row. I've lost count at this point.
The Low Points:
Its a toss-up.
1. Got bitten in the thigh by a dog, while I was trying to keep a dumb-ass citizen from getting bitten. Its hard to cover your own ass when you're busy covering someone elses. Not too bad of a bite, but irritating. This is the fourth time I'm gotten popped on the job in 16 years. I've determined that I don't like it.
2. Ran my last call about 9:15pm. Chasing a stray goat around someone's backyard in the dark at the end of a long day sucks. And yes.... sweat in a fresh dog bite does sting like a mutha'.
The High Point:
Being able to check the "NO" box for question #27 on the employee injury report form: "Did the Employee Die?"
Gives you pause when you work in a job where that question has to be asked, though.
