    Thumbs up Reverse 911

    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.

    Good for you!

    She is probably someones' mother or grandmother and they are worried sick!

    I was reading the OP and was hoping you'd say "The more they described her, the more I thought, huh, she looks like ME"

    hah!

    I'm in the doghouse now...

    WTF? A reverse 911 call? How does that work?

    Ring ring

    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
    me: What?
    911: We are dispatching the SWAT team now
    me: SWAT?
    911: They've got your house surrounded. Remain calm
    me: ???
    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.)!



    911: wooglin? sir? Are you still there?
