Today I was allocating the central part of the South East desk. I like this desk. The reason I like this desk is because it contains Waterloo Ambulance Station, which is directly behind Control. So when you send an ambulance to a call, you can see it drive past the window on blue lights. For some reason, this makes me happy. I’m easily pleased.

    Is that the one on Pearman St? I walked past on Thursday and was stunned the place is huge! I've never seen so many ambulances in my life

    don’t be fooled – most of those ambos are waiting to go to the workshops, or to be decomissioned or some such. many of the cars actually belong to managers from the headquarters building, and it is regularly well nigh impossible for us poor stretcher monkeys to actually park outside our station. not that we’re bitter..

    It's called the "feedback principle". Generally people like to see responses to their actions, and seeing the ambulance whoosh past is a nice form of feedback.
