Had a call yesterday, at first I thought, pffft hang up. But I listened, it was a reverse 911 call. They start describing a missing elderly lady, with Alzheimer's. The more they described her, the more I thought, huh, she looks like any other elderly lady walking down the street. Then they said "she is carrying a mop."
Holy sh!t. I saw her walking down one of our main streets as I drove to my PT appointment. I called 911 to report it, I hope they found her.
It's all fun and games until someone ends up in a cone.
me: Uh, hello?
911 operator: Is this wooglin at 123 Fancypants lane?
me: uh, yes. May I ask who's calling?
911: This is the 911 operator. You are having an emergency
me: What? I am?
911: Yes. Your home has just been broken into by three gun-toting thugs
911: We are dispatching the SWAT team now
911: They've got your house surrounded. Remain calm
911: GET DOWN ON THE FLOOR GET DOWN ON THE FLOOR! THEY'VE GOT A CLEAN SHOT!!!
me: Oh sh!t.
BANG BANG! BANG BANG BANG! CRASH! THUD! INDISTINCT BUT DISTURBING BACKGROUND NOISES OF VIOLENCE (etc.)!
