Not heard on radio, but I can just imagine the story that came into dispatch, and the fire investigator

Several years ago my department responded to a garage fire that turned out to be caused by the owner trying to get rid of paper wasps by throwing gasoline on the nests...while smoking. Like the old saying goes, "If you're gonna be stupid, you better be tough."

***

My catch of the week, on a school bus TGRP:

"Base, 401, my left mirror is banging on the side of my bus and it's about to fall off. Do I need another bus?"

"Can you still see to drive?"

"Yes, but the mirror is about to fall off!"

"You don't need another bus if you can proceed. Deliver your kids and bring it in after you get done. We got more mirrors here, that's what they're for."

"If it falls off should I stop and pick it up?"

"I wouldn't bother if I was you."

This is from my area, but I haven't heard of anyone having that audio. If I hear of anyone having it, I will share.

And having driven a bus (years ago) that would be a major safety violation. The mirrors on school buses are adjusted so that the driver can see where the rear wheels meet the ground - to be able to see if a kid drops his books and goes after them. We were trained to check the mirrors on both sides before pulling out from a stop. And even if we just "readjusted" a mirror (say, on a low hanging branch) we were to stop and readjust it immediately!

On the way home from work today, I heard an ambulance call go out. The crew was directed to a car wreck on the local interstate; the driver had suffered a head injury that wouldn't stop bleeding. The cause of the wreck? He hit ... a turkey.

I don't know if he hit the turkey with the front of the car and the airbag sliced his head, or if he hit the turkey with the windshield.

Deer-car collisions around here are very common year-round, but that was the first turkey-car collision I've ever heard.

That's why I rolled my eyes when I heard it. Drove a bus or 2 myself back in the day, and lots of trucks since then. Losing a mirror is always a bad situation. Letting one fall off and just leaving it on the road...whose genius idea was that?
