Douche of the Week 7-7

Now its a damn shame when you are fired from your job for trying saving someones life.   Florida lifeguard Tomas Lopez was at his post on the beach when he noticed a swimmer was in distress.  Without even thinking about it Lopez jumped down and ran to the swimmer’s aid.  By the time he got there some other beach-goers had already pulled the swimmer out of the water and Lopez stayed with the man till the paramedics arrived.  You would think that Lopez would be the recipient of a “job well done” or at least a pat on the back for helping others but instead he was handed his walking papers.  That’s right people he was fired for trying to save a drowning swimmer.  Why?  Because the swimmer was drowning out of Lopez’ patrol zone.  Jeff Ellis Management, the company that employs the lifeguards stated in a press release that because of liability issues the lifeguard should have stayed put and not offered help.  I don’t know about you but that sounds like a load of bullshit to me.  I for one salute Lopez for doing what he could to save someone.  The world needs more people like him that will step over these ridiculous corporate boundaries and do the right thing.  As for  Jeff Ellis Management you are without a doubt the new Douche of the Week!!

    Pretty shitty thing to do, but I expected the person who reported your other blog the douche of the week

      I’m not gonna lie, I thought about it but then I remembered this story and figured the lifeguard deserved a mention more than some jerkoff with a grudge.

    I applaud his fellow co workers for standing behind his decision as well … Hopefully the hallandale beach commissioners have the balls to strip the Jeff Ellis and Associates management company of their contract and find someone who’s first priority is saving someones life… karma’s a bitch, hopefully Mr Ellis gets what he deserves! Definitely a nice choice for this week’s douche of the week!
