Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the mobile home fire is delightful & since she didn’t pay her fee, let it burn, let it burn, let it burn!
There’s nothing I hate more than frugal people and those that have the mind set of, ‘it’ll never happen to me’. Put the two together, and you have one deserving moron in this article:
This lady deserved it. Harsh, yes, but lesson learned. Pay your local fire department for their services and stop thinking that you’re untouchable to anything bad in life. People should want to willingly pay their FDs for their service to save their ass and property, but since people are greedy and would rather spend it on fancy technology, they don’t, and FDs are left with no choice but to collect a fee to keep themselves running.
The FD was in the right. They responded to the call and protected the property of the people neighboring the flaming mobile home that paid they fee. Besides, there’s no saving a mobile home fully engulfed in flames. You kidding me? It’s not worth risking their lives for it. Plus, it’s not like they pulled out marshmellows and hotdogs to roast to make a joke out of the situation (though I would’ve supported that too haha).
Knowing that lady, she probably doesn’t even have [good] insurance, because again, she’s a tight wad and thinks she will never need it.
I hope there were a few lessons learned for this lady.
