Matthew Sanchez was working at the Albuquerque 911 dispatch center when he received a call from a woman who was performing CPR on a gunshot victim. Apparently the caller annoyed Sanchez, because he told her “OK, you know what ma’am, you could deal with it yourself. I’m not gonna deal with this, okay?”
Did Albuquerque Fire Chief David Downey punish Sanchez? No way! He promoted Sanchez to a job where Sanchez gets the same pay without having to do any work.
I don’t know about you, but I’d be willing to insult as many people as necessary to qualify for that swell gig.
