A moaning resident pinned this irate note complaining about an ambulance driver’s parking who was busy saving someone’s life.
The Birmingham resident’s note, which was written in capital letters, said: ‘You may be saving lives, but don’t park your van in a stupid place and block my drive’.
The paramedics were only at the scene in Small Heath 30 minutes as they battled to save a man’s life before taking him to hospital.
West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust tweeted: ‘Sometimes we just don’t know quite what to say.
‘At the time, the crew were helping a man who was extremely unwell after vomiting a lot of blood.
Sometimes we just don't know what to say. This was the note left on an ambulance today. At the time, the crew were helping a man who was extremely unwell after vomiting blood. They took him on blue lights to hospital where he was in a critical condition. #patientscomefirst pic.twitter.com/RwCCVmZgrA

He added: ‘They assessed his condition and immediately took him on blue lights to hospital where he was in a critical condition.
‘Our staff will always try and park considerately, but sometimes, there just isn’t time. Sorry, patients come first.’
After the ambulance service tweeted about the incident they received backing from Twitter users.
Amanda Williams said: ‘Would they have stuck it on a police car, some people are so selfish and don’t think about the reason as to why a crew would have to do that.
‘I hope they see the posting and learn to be more respectful of a service that could save their or family/friends lives in the future.
Hannah Stinson added: ‘Wow. That’s an awesome amount of ridiculousness/stupidity wrapped up with a bow selfishness!’
