KJC (Oliver Moore);

I’m confused…is this anti-sign, or tongue-in-cheek pro-sign? Honestly, I don’t happen to care about the signage. It can be kind of nice to see that after all that hard, dirty, thankless work, but at the same time I find them kind of embarrassing. I definitely get embarrassed by people walking up to me in the grocery store or on the street because I’ve got a fire shirt on. Definitely not something to get teary over, and I’ve never felt that I’m repressing my emotions on the fireline…generally the opposite. I can be more expressive on the fireline than I can in most places. And I generally come off the line too tired to cry, especially over a sign.
