How is this even real life?

A foulmouthed parrot named Jessie has become an internet sensation after she told a firefighter (that was trying to rescue her) to “fuck off.” Jessie escaped from her home and was perched on the neighbor’s roof for 3 days when the owners called the fire department for help.

“Jessie had been on the same roof for three days and there were concerns that she may be injured which is why she hadn’t come down,” Chris Swallow told Metro. Before the rescue began, the firefighter received specific instructions from the owner who told him to say “I love you,” but it had no effect on Jessie who kept on swearing.

We really don’t give enough credit to all the first responders out there, busting their asses, saving lives and all for what? This kind of treatment?

“Hey, I’m here to rescue you Jessie, I love you.”

‘”Fuck off.”

There’s a lot of people that care about you Jessie, let’s get you off this roof.”

“Fuck off.”

“Ok Jessie, here’s a bowl with some food.”

“Fuck you, you mother fucking fuck-faced fuck.”

“Jessie that’s not nice.”

“I fucked your mother.”
