Even the professionals make mistakes sometimes


They charge into burning buildings, they put themselves between us and danger and, sometimes, they too make mistakes.

A couple of reminders that our first responders are human surfaced this week online and in social media, causing a few chuckles because of the irony – and because nobody got hurt.

On Monday a Columbia firefighter left a pot of grease on a hot stove, causing $20,000 in damage to the department’s headquarters.

And now a YouTube video has surfaced of Charleston Police officers using a Slim Jim to get into a police cruiser after an officer evidently left the keys in the car.

We all have our rough days. Sometimes you just have to laugh ‘em off.
