I was thinking about funny stories today, don`t know why but I was.
My wife works for 911, so I get to hear some of the funny things (and the not so funny) that people call about! Here is a few!
1. One night a man called from a pretty ritzy area here in Beautiful Central Oregon. He was yelling that he needed the police, and was out of breath. Immediately my wife dispatched all to heed the call for help all while trying to calm him down. She kept trying to figure out if some one was inside the home threatening him or what. After a few tries he finally stated, "I told you I need the police, my toilet is overflowing!"
As a 911 dispatcher, with life and death (literally) in your hands, what do you say to that? I would say, Stupid moron call a plumber, but that cant be said and that it why I am not a 911 dispatcher.
2. A lady called one day, she needed the police to visit her neighbor, their frogs were to loud and she was trying to take a nap!
We should all give a big round of to the brave people that have to answer our calls for "help"!
Thanks hope to get some good stories on here so that we can all have a smile on our face sometime during the day!
