A new craze sweeping through United Kingdom is seeing a number of kind notes left on ambulances attending emergencies and some people dropping cash on Ambulance windscreens to appreciate paramedics for their good job.
According to Metro Uk, the move comes after a spate of rude notes being left on the emergency vehicles, with people moaning about paramedics blocking drives while saving lives.
Community first responder Carol Lewis from South East Coast Ambulance Service saw one note pinned to the window of the vehicle after responding to an emergency call.
I can’t begin to imagine how hard your job must be so have some breakfast on me.
‘Once again, thank you so much.’
The kind gesture has been branded a ‘brilliant internet sensation’ after support for the nice notes surged on Facebook commending paramedics as ‘local heroes.’
Bill Bayley said:
‘The kindness of people never surprises me.
‘What does surprise me is that the money was still there when they got to their ambulance.’
Richard Walsh said:
‘Love it – that’s how to get your message home and give these local heroes a treat.’
A third note was found by paramedics more than 160 miles away in Flint, North Wales, who were pleasantly surprised to find a note and a fiver when they returned to their vehicle after dealing with an emergency.
‘Thank you for blocking my driveway to save a life. Refreshments on me.’
Ambulance crew member, Aimee Louise, responded to the gesture on Facebook.
‘Returning to the ambulance after a call to find this heartwarming message tucked under the wiper.
‘Absolutely made our day. Such a heartwarming gesture. Thank you so much kind stranger.’
