He could no longer keep this to himself. His swollen leg was affecting his job and his team deserved to know.
“My swollen leg was the reason for the hold-up.”
“The pain was so severe that I couldn’t even save the kid in time.”
“This is all my fault… I’ve let the team down.”
The fire chief was furious hearing about the incident.
“You should’ve been honest about having this condition.”
“You’ve not only put your life in danger but two others as well.”
“As a firefighter, time is of the essence.”
“Your actions were in direct violation of standard operating procedures.”
“We have to move you to the backend.”
