Cool story, also really pathetic sometimes how litigious of a society we've become. Seriously you're a firefighter and you're suing the city because of a fire pole hole that doesn't move! These kind of cases need to be thrown out on the spot!

Tried to get my dad to install a firepole in the tree fort we built in the early '60's as a quicker way to respond when my mom would call us for dinner - still waiting!
