Try looking online for some really stupid calls dispatch has had to accept.
One of ‘em, in Brockton, MA, actually has a neat ending. A boy, about 9 years old, phoned because his mother wanted him in bed at the same time even though it was a school night.
Officer responds, as customary, as a wellness check. Before he leaves, the mother said “Please don’t go, Officer. Explain to him the consequences of non emergency 9 1 1 calls”—which the officer did.
A much older one, which I think still makes the rounds of ID type shows, I was living in Tampa at that time & we got a big laugh out of it.
Some wierdo stuck his penis in the drain of a motel swimming pool & couldn’t get out. Dispatcher was incredulous as to why the call was being placed.
One of our entry level workers gave notice citing she’d finally gotten her dream job—9 1 1 dispatch. Before about two years, she’d returned, accepting a billing job, & didn’t seem to want to talk about her experience in what was her dream job.
I simply haven’t the patience to deal with every caller. Interviewed once for the position fresh out of college, & it didn’t go well.
