What I always told my daughter when she was a little girl, was that humor is subjective. When I first read this report, I presumed that stupidity had been elevated to a new high.
When everyone else is running OUT of a burning building, firefighters are running IN. As a firefighter, you are quite literally placing your life in the hands of a brother firefighter. I doubt seriously that the 'new guy' was trying to insult the old-timers. At best it was harmless, at worst, stupid.
Kudos to the 'old-timers' for showing that they are the grown-ups in the room.
