I’m a paramedic & got revenge on petty neighbour who refused to move his car so I could get patient to hospital

A PARAMEDIC got sweet revenge on a “petty” neighbour who refused to move his car so an ambulance could take a patient to hospital.

The “entitled” resident had blocked the patient’s drive and snubbed pleas from the ambulance crew and firefighters to shift out of the way.

What happened next is revealed by the former paramedic in a post on the Pro Revenge Reddit thread.

He recalled a time when he was called out to help a 30st (420lbs) patient who had fallen at home and had a suspected broken hip.

The problem was a “really arrogant” neighbour, who they had encountered before.

He habitually parked in the patient’s disabled space, despite warnings from the council, and on this day had a second car blocking the drive.

They needed access to the house, so a colleague asked the neighbour to move his car – and was told to “do one”.

The paramedic recalled: “Time to get the message home. I radioed through to our control centre and asked for the fire service and police.

“We needed the fire service to help lift the guy and the police to do a little parking control.”

A fireman also got a blunt reply when he asked the neighbour to move, according to the Reddit post.

The story goes on: “The message was relayed back and the watch commander just asked me one question: ‘Is the patient’s life at risk?’.

“I knew exactly where this was going and it was time our thoughtless neighbour got the message.

“My answer was ‘Yes, there is equipment I need to get into the house and the driveway is blocked preventing me doing so’.

“The watch commander told the fire truck driver to ‘move those vehicles’.

“It was really satisfying to see both vehicles being pushed down the road by the fire service and the look on the neighbour’s face as he came out spitting and screaming was well worth seeing.

“His complaints to the police fell on deaf ears. They were well aware of his history of obstruction and my clinical assessment that the patients life was in danger was more than enough justification for the vehicles to be moved.

“I doubt it made our patients life any easier and sadly they died a few months later without leaving hospital, but it really did bring a smile to their face as we wheeled them out.”

One reply in the comments said: “There is nothing better than seeing a fire engine push cars around like nothing.”

And another paramedic in the US said: “As a FF/EMT this brought a grin to my face.

“While the patient did not return home perhaps the neighbor learned a lesson. Alas, I fear not as these a**holes seem to be born this way.”

In 2018, an angry neighbour hit the headlines after leaving a foul-mouthed note on an ambulance responding to a 999 call in Stoke-on-Trent.

Jobless Kirsty Sharman – who did not have a car – wrote: “I couldn’t give a s*** if the whole street collapses. Now move your van from outside my house.”

She was later arrested and fined £120 for a public order offence.

In 2017, another resident apologised for a note slamming paramedics for blocking his drive as they battled to save a patient’s life in Birmingham.

After the patient’s family called him “monstrous”, teaching assistant Hassan Shabbir said he was “disgusted with himself”.

He added: “There is no justification for what I did. I am deeply ashamed at my actions, even before I found out the poor man had died.”
