Some jobs are just not for me. Here is an excerpt from News.com Australia about a project I chose to turn down.
Station finance manager David Breed had a severe heart attack at work in September.
Ms Hegyi, who is a registered nurse, rushed to help.
She gave him medication, hooked him up to oxygen and called an ambulance from Adelaide River.
“But he deteriorated rapidly and I thought he was going to die,” Ms Hegyi said. “So we put him in a car and David drove towards Adelaide River.
“The ambulance met us half way.”
Mr Breed was taken to Royal Darwin Hospital and was off work for several weeks.
“I honestly believe that I saved his life,” Ms Hegyi said.
The couple were shocked when they returned from holiday after Christmas and were told they were being made redundant.
They were given a separation package and told to leave their company house within two weeks.
“We’re shattered,” Mr Hegyi said. “We’ve got no jobs, no house and five kids.”
Here are a few reasons I had to turn down this assignment.
- They wouldn’t listen to my suggestion by targeting the finance manager instead of the Hegyis. He will need medical attention and thus their health insurance would go up. I was informed the healthcare in Australia is not the same as the US. Oh yeah.
- I’m not even that cold
- I just got home and I need a break…all this killing is exhausting
- They have 5 kids and are good people, I refuse to target anyone that is well liked or respected by their peers
- I believe in Karma
