BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Statter911 points us to this video of a man saying his local fire department makes him "sick."
The man records firefighters using an aerial ladder in what appears to be training or testing, while he says "the diesel fumes are blowing in my direction. They're making me sick! They pull this crap on a regular basis."
The man claims that there is spot nearby the firefighters could work, but instead they go "in front of people's houses."
In the original YouTube video description, the uploader says "I guess A**holes do come in all shapes, sizes, colors and uniforms."
One suspects the diesel fumes would be less bothersome to his well being if that aerial were being used to pluck him from his burning home.

Travis WilhiteWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:48:25 PMIf you look at this guys other videos, it looks like he follows diesels around to make videos about how bad they are...maybe he's dumb enough to think gasoline is better than diesel?

D. Scott HewittWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:52:58 PMSo, how years of firefighter training did he hav, e to know where the best spot is for them to train? I guess he wants them out in a field somewhere. Liek AWAY from the houses they will have to work with in an actual incident..............

OMG, GET A LIFE MAN, THESE ARE JUST THE TYPE OF PEOPLE WHO THINK FIREFIGHTERS ARE NOT WORTH ONE PENNY, BUT WORSHIP THE GROUND ALL THESE SPORTS PLAYERS AND POLITICIANS WALK ON, GUARANTEE IT! THEY ARE TESTING THE APPARATUS OR TRAINING MAYBE A PROBIE, BUT THEY ARE IN A PARKING LOT AND A GOOD 400 TO 500 OBVIOUS FEET FROM ANYONES HOME AND AS YOUR CAN TELL, ITS PRETTY BREEZY WHICH WILL DISSIPATE MOST FUMES...WHAT AN IDIOT!
Marianne WebbWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:53:05 PMthe man who taped this should be ashamed of himself.hope his house never catches fire!!
Spencer PickettWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:53:13 PMThat little bitch disabled the comments... he must have know people are going to shit on him.
Greg JeppsonWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:53:25 PMI didn't see anything wrong with this. Obviously this guy has some issues.... I wonder if he will be saying the same thing if this crew saves his family, property or even his life?
Kurtis CookWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:53:28 PMThis guy is a douche.
John ThomasWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:53:50 PMIf he was at work he wouldn't smell the fumes....
Damon CorrWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:54:09 PMDid the fellar not think of just going over to the crew and speaking to them like a man before bitching about it on the internet? I think generally as firefighters we'd all do what we can to not get up people's noses, literally in this case!
Casey WojoWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:54:13 PMNo consideration? This guy just sounds like a complete moron. They're training to someday maybe save him and his home! People like him is why this world is messed up.
Jeff HopkinsWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:54:52 PMOK I have to say it he is just stupid.
Jim CarleyWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:55:07 PMwell I hope one day his house is on fire and they let it burn to the ground..people like him don't need polica of fire services if they are going to whine about it.
Kim SweatlandWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:55:40 PMI don't find this hard to believe...with being in fire police you can only imagine the ignorant people I have come across.
Michael SmithWednesday, February 06, 2013 1:55:58 PMWow citizens against rescuers gotta love it!!!

Mike SchlievertWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:00:06 PMYa I watched it. What a whinning puss, like a fire truck is going to give off enough fumes to get in his house with the windows closed. I wonder if this jack ass has a job or just has too much free time to be video taping this in the middle of the day?
David Lee SauterWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:00:13 PMthis guys a jack ass I'm sure if tey go to his house they cant have the trucks running which means they cant do any thing so I guess he dies I think this guys makes me sick thses guy are training to one day save his ass what an ididot.
Ryan BradfordWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:00:23 PMThis guy wont be complaining when his house starts on fire. And He is not coughing because of the fumes he is coughing because he is morbidly obese and inches from having a heart attack.
Randy Davis Sr.Wednesday, February 06, 2013 2:00:54 PMall I have to say is you have to respect to comminuty who pays bills.
Susan Maxwell SouthworthWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:01:12 PMDANG! I think he'd feel different if his house was on fire!
Eddie Felton Jr.Wednesday, February 06, 2013 2:01:16 PMHey Asshole, why don't you go over and complain to them? There can't be too much diesel fumes going that distance and the unit isn't even smoking or running hard. So when you need help don't call them because they'll be coming in that polluting apparatus to save your dumb ass.....
Mathieu LalondeWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:01:21 PMWhat a little complaining b****! Real looser
John J Sibley-PrusakWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:02:55 PMJust a product of today's society! I'm sure he'll try to profit some how on the back of the taxpayers of Bridgeport, AND in today's way of thinking........WIN!
David KinleyWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:03:33 PMwhat a ass clown go the hell back inside if the fumes are that bad.
Robbie PyciorWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:06:02 PMguy is a joke, all his vids are of diesels idling and him bitching and moaning about it...he lives in an industrial area, yet bitches about trucks idling.....
Nick LucasWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:06:32 PM"NO EEIN' consideration for nobody" eh, naahh....just no consideration of showing up to save your ass when you need it. what an assflap.
Scott MillerWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:14:18 PMEddie how u been
Cindy NoskoWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:17:26 PMso question. If the fumes are making him sick, why in hell is he standing there filming. Pretty stupid if you ask me!
Katy HerrickWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:18:50 PMwhat a big ass. dude are freaking retard to insult the fire department like that. give it a rest already and the firefighters do their job.
Bruce Solomon Sr.Wednesday, February 06, 2013 2:20:41 PMisn't it to bad then if the fumes were so bad why did he sit there in the fumes videoing it Just another one who likes to complain but when his place burns and the operator on duty doesn't know how to ues the ladder well he will be complaining again this guy is just a pain in the ass Iwould love to meet him face to face.
Bruce Solomon Sr.Wednesday, February 06, 2013 2:22:42 PMhe probibly doesnt if all he does is video things to bitch about
Chris WhynotWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:24:39 PMlmao what a dick.... all that bitching and he goes back in and smokes a joint or something......asshole.
Bruce Solomon Sr.Wednesday, February 06, 2013 2:25:30 PMNO HE DIDNT CAUSE HE IS A PUSSY
Ron SetterbergWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:25:35 PMMy question is if this is such a problem why doesn't he go to the department and speak to them. No he rather rant about the f@#$ing a##holes. Sad to say where I live we have people with who complain to the local paper about their volunteer firefighters doing stuff. I guess people like this love the couple minutes of fame.
Scott DillonWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:28:27 PMThis guy is an idiot! Has very limited brain cells in his bonehead.
Chris JamesWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:30:11 PMthat's his fault dumbs guy I bet he wouldn't be complaining if his house was on fire.
MIke HippWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:31:56 PMHe has probably applied for fire and police jobs and couldn't pass the psych evaluation... Idiot
Donnie HansenWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:32:03 PMHe was right about one part in the whole video.... assholes do come in all shapes and sizes! (referring to him!!)
Alexander CafovskiWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:32:11 PMI really Like how this guy cant be bothered to politely go overthere and ask them to relocate.... He has enough breath to curse and swear at them for doing what is clearly training.
Nathan DoveWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:35:01 PMI would comment but everything I was thinking was already said!
Peggy DunnWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:36:51 PMWILL IT CAN BE A LONG TIME AND A HUGE BILL IF HIS HOUSE WAS ON FIRE THERE IS ALWAYS ASSHOLE IN EVERY TOWN.
Scott MacKellarWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:37:44 PMwhat's the matter couldn't get on.
Troy TodakWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:38:18 PMThis shit bag is a crying little bitch.
Peter SellsWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:40:12 PMOn the other hand, would you take the EVEC systems out of the stations, since they wouldn't be used at a fire scene?
Matt YaciukWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:40:35 PMgo to f***ing hell if your house caught on fire I wouldn't not respond.
Joey BoneyWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:41:08 PMWhat a freakin moron... he would be the first to pitch a fit if they didn't show up to a call at his house...Prick.
Elisha PerryWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:43:12 PMHas anyone else noticed that the branches of the tree blow away from the camera not toward the camera indicating that the wind wasn't even blowing anything toward him. What an idiot. An to make it worse if he wasn't outside filming it he wouldn't have to worry about the smell.
Gerry HaverlandWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:43:19 PMJERK! Those "Inconsiderate Firefighters" would risk their life to save the life of a sick puke like that. There is no way the fumes could be hurting him, but I bet if he asked them, they would be HAPPY to find another place to train to save HIS life.
Gerry HaverlandWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:45:03 PMBy the way.....HE is breathing good air someone else could be breathing! I can name a few who would love a few breaths of that smoke.
Tim WoodellWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:47:22 PMHe's mad because he isn't man enought to do the job.
Toni ChamblinWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:48:24 PMIf his house was on fire, I'd let it burn.
James FrostWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:52:15 PMthis guy needs to shut up.
Arthur McculleyWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:52:49 PMYa cant please all the ppl all the time i guess today wasnt his day
Jared WittWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:55:28 PMWhat a jerk. Bridgeport FD should leave him in his burning house when the time comes.
Alexander CafovskiWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:57:52 PMPeter,
There are smoke removers available to mount directly to the exhaust system of your truck, It's also important to know the age of the truck in question to see if there are any dpf's or urea systems on board. I just think this guy is in a huff (no pun intended)
Jeff LuikeWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:59:07 PMWhining! Are you kidding me. He is one of the reasons you cant have a firehouse siren blow anymore.What a dumbass.
Judy McgreevyWednesday, February 06, 2013 2:59:53 PMmost likely the guy doesn't even work and looks out his window all day, collecting social security..
Steve GershonWednesday, February 06, 2013 3:00:42 PMwhat a wimp ass, maybe we need to find out his address to ventalate for him
Michael HolmesWednesday, February 06, 2013 3:02:00 PMOk FD muster at this morons place. set up a tower and have the drag trucks come too! It will be a blast. Then he can complain about the smell of nox and cam 2 bitch!
Austin GibsonWednesday, February 06, 2013 3:03:25 PMSound like a guy on welfare thinks that the fire department is a waist of money so he can have more on his unemployment check probably could not pass a drug test much less anything else probably loves Obama thinks he is king. knows nothing about a type one engine or even how to but out brush fires. just one of them people who thinks they can do better than anyone else one of them people that need to be put in the situation of trying to make entry knowing there a child inside and taking the heat of the fire captain blowing down your neck and a mother crying her eyes out. he sound to be the first person to start the fire and probably deny it and bitch that it took to long a guy that probably hiding something in the back yard or a back room something not legal more than likely.
Scott MewbornWednesday, February 06, 2013 3:03:44 PMYea, and this lazy good for nothing would be the first to call upon these fireman when help is needed! I bet he wouldn't speak like that to their face. What an IDIOT!
Scott MewbornWednesday, February 06, 2013 3:04:47 PMMy point Exactly!
