If you think the people who complain about Amber Alerts waking them up in the middle of the night because they can’t be bothered to mute their phones are total shitheels (they are, for the record) get a load of this guy. Man alive.
We always try our best to be there for the people of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, but messages like this, really affect our teams morale. We are sorry the helicopter wakes people up at night, but it is not our intention to disrupt your evening, but rather save someone's life. pic.twitter.com/0ihpjoIo5v

If you’re like me and can’t read the message in the tweeted photo, here’s what it says as best I can scan it.
Can you explain why you decided to fly at 1750 ft from St Mary’s Hospital to Southampton General Hospital at 4 am over residential properties – waking occupants. Inconsiderate i think, will NO longer be donating to your cause.
That’s right, buddy here is yelling at an air ambulance for being an air ambulance too loudly in his neighbourhood at the wrong time of night.
Luckily I have no pull with anyone who runs the air ambulance service, because if I did I would strongly consider using it to convince those people to write down his name, address and phone number and then helpfully provide him with a “you are calling outside of regular business hours” message should he ever need anything.
Seriously, fuck off, mate.
A resident who complained about being woken up by an air ambulance has been called “selfish” by social media users.
The unnamed person wrote to Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance to ask it to “explain” why they had been flying at 04:00 in the morning.
Twitter users said they were “gobsmacked” at the complaint after the service shared a screenshot.
“It is not our intention to disrupt your evening, but rather save someone’s life,” the service said.
