A building on Montreal caught fire last September. Firefighters were eager to get to it as soon as possible, for it was blazing vigorously.
This took place in Old Montreal--the oldest part of the city, which has very narrow streets. It was hard for the firefighters to maneuver their fire truck to the scene. The fact that police had chosen to park their cars in the way didn't help. But it didn't stop the fire truck, either. The driver pushed the police cruisers out of the way, sideswiped a BMW parked nearby, and kept going.
Now if only I could do this to people who waddle slowly in front of me down the middle of hallways . . . .
