"Eric gets some more time off"
Didn't we all make jokes about Eric's commitment to his firefighter job? Well, the fire chief in his town felt the same way, and so now Eric will get some more time off.

'BB3' Firefighter Suspended from Job
Tue, Sep 3, 2002 11:38 AM PDT

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - Eric Ouellette, the fourth person to be evicted from the "Big Brother 3" house, has now been sent home from his job as a Connecticut firefighter.

Ouellette was suspended for two weeks from the Poquonnock Bridge, Conn., department for failing to follow proper procedures, the AP reports. Chief Todd Paige says the suspension resulted from Ouellette's trading shifts with other firefighters so he could get enough time off to appear on the CBS reality show.

Paige says he was concerned the other firefighters would become overly tired working the extra shifts.

Ouellette became known for talking in his sleep and romancing fellow contestant Lisa Donahue in the month he was in the "Big Brother 3" house. After becoming the fourth evictee, he spent a CBS-paid week in Mexico. The vacation was part of the game, as the remaining players had to re-admit one of the four.

Amy Crews won that vote, sending Ouellette back home to Connecticut.

I am on Eric's side on this, and I hope he wins his appeal of the suspension.

I cannot for a minute believe that his superiors didn't know of this well in advance ("Gee, what are all these CBS cameras doing here?") and could have said something in advance. I also don't think the shift trading was explicitly prohibited in their contract. So I hope Eric wins and they won't keep using him for their political machinations in that fire dept.
