    Yeah technically, get it all out of the way at once! If you call it "work". Probably the easiest job I could have ever imagined....Don't get me wrong, it has its moments... when you run a wreck in the pouring down rain with thunder and lightning..tornado warnings...and you have to stand out in those conditions for 45 minutes to an hour to get a 17 year old girl cut out of her car because she decided "LOL" was an important text to send at 12:30 in the morning.....I guess those calls make up for all the time I spend sleeping or watching TV lol.
