Rule #1

Black Sheep Rebel Club Rule #1

Firm, blunt, and to the point because sometimes that’s the only way to get the message across. Not everyone does things the way that you do. Not everyone likes the tools that you do. We come from many regions, departments, and backgrounds. None of us is perfect. That guy may not be the greatest firefighter the world has ever seen, but neither are you. It is perfectly acceptable to engage in a respectful, professional exchange regarding our differences, but don’t cross the line. Take a look in the mirror before you start throwing rocks and play nice.

    You need the post this to Facebook. I agree whole heartedly. You don’t need to be a dick in asking someone to do something. Also you shouldn’t ask someone to do something you wouldn’t do yourself. A leader should lead from the front and not the back.

    Excellent first rule, with one caveat: if you do have to be a dick, be a big hard one. There are times when being a dick is appropriate. Mess with my crew, bully those around you, intimidate rather than teach, don’t own your mistakes… Captain Dickhead has a time and a place.
