In a town near here... *LINK*
Hmmm? Every once in a while we'll have a car pile up out here and I'll call 911. "this is Wayne Fisher at blah blah...we have another car wreck. Have you ever had the need to call 911? Once you tell them all you need to tell em or know comes a game of 20 question.
What happened?...I don't know, I didn't see it happen but there's a car upside down in the swamp.
Is anyone hurt?...I don't know, I'm calling from my house.
How many were in the car?...I don't know, I'm calling from my house.
Do we need to send police, fire, or ambulance?...How the hell would I know...send whoever you want to send.
Do we need to send police, fire, or ambulance?...I said I don't know...send em all...send the military...I don't care.
That's about when I hang up cause the longer you stay on the phone the more inane the endless questioning gets.
From the article: Caller: Not too bad, I need EMS to start our way please. I have a suicidal employee in one of our offices, he attempted to cut himself three or four times tonight. And he is willing to go with EMS.
Operator: OK, what did he attempt to cut himself with?
what did he attempt to cut himself with?...well...we were cooking spaghetti and he tried to cut himself with a wet noodle...no really...he tried to cut himself with a chainsaw...No, no, he tried to cut himself with his cell phone. Send the military!
