Vancouver Fire and Rescue claps back at impatient driver on Twitter

Jun 6 2018, 3:14 pm

A tweet from the Vancouver Fire and Rescue, calling out what they’re describing as an impatient and heartless driver, is going viral on Twitter.

According to their social media account, one of their units was called to help a Translink driver get an injured animal off the road.

When that unit had to briefly stop traffic to assist in the rescue, a rather… unpleasant individual “honked, yelled, and gestured” at the unit.

While it’s not specified what this gesture was, it’s safe to assume that it wasn’t a nice one.

What most people weren’t expecting, however, was what can only be described as a brutal clap back on social media.

Ouch. But very well put.

Since being tweeted out yesterday evening at approximately 6:00 pm, the tweet has blown up, grabbing over 9,000 likes, over 2,000 retweets, and a lot of Vancouverites who have shown their support for the Vancouver Fire Rescue.

It’s pretty evident that nobody in Vancouver likes traffic.

Sometimes it’s enough to stress drivers out too. You just got off work, you’re battling through rush hour traffic, and the mix of hunger and tiredness is culminating into a bitter, cranky attitude.

But some patience and understanding is expected, especially when it means saving someone else’s life (human or animal).
