Heard yesterday on a Huntsville-area Business LTR System:
Well, you could stop drinking DURING work...

Responding to first scanner I ever owned, I thought of a funny conversation I heard while stationed in Mississippi in 81 or 82.

Starkville, MS had a drive in theater that showed 'adult' (I mean hardcore) movies Sun-Thur (school nights). I was there with lady friend and scanner (scanner turned off) one evening. The area had had a day or so of rain and the theater grounds were a bit muddy in some places.

Anyway, a Sherrif deputy decided to drive through the theater. Probably to watch the movie. Going up and down the lanes, he got stuck. He was about 20 yards from where I was parked, so I got the scanner out and sure enough. He was calling for a tow truck. He sounded a bit embarrassed when asked his location. Wish I could have been at roll call that night (or next shift).

"Whats your location?"

"By the porta-potties."

"Good place for ya!"

I just heard this one today over the Montgomery Fire/Rescue Dispatch. Its not really funny its just one of those stupid calls.


A call was put out for an odor in the area for this location... Few minutes later the dispatcher advised everyone to place everyone back in service except for the engine. The caller had called back and he thinks he smells a skunk. Shortly the engine advises the dispatcher that a dog was spayed by a skunk.


Tell me how could you not tell that your smelling a SKUNK!

Not heard, but seen.

An ambulance is running hot to the hospital in heavy 5PM traffic. Apparently, this is the first time the driver took this route to the new hospital. So, when he reaches the (under construction) intersection for the multi-lane highway, he turns left into oncoming traffic. Too late, apparently, he realizes that he is going the wrong way. But, he perseveres, and traffic separates, as is described in Genesis, and the ambulance arrives safely at the emergency room.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall when the ambulance returned to the station.

I drove the wrong way on an interstate to get around traffic, twice with codes in back, ya gotta do what ya gotta do. Unfortunately one was an 18 year old and there was nothing we could have done for him.

What made it interesting is the correct lanes were about 150 feet ahead of him, with a green arrow for the left turn lane, and several of the cars ahead of me tried to notify him by honking their horns. But, since the ambulance was using red lights, siren, and, most likely, a new, very loud, horn, I don't think he was aware of his mistake until after he was about 200 feet committed to swimming upstream.

Too bad there were no tv choppers overhead.

The PD just got dispatched to McDonalds for some idiot that is at the menu board and won't order. He is just parked there and refusing to move. Been there for about 20 minutes.

Officer: 4-6 to radio.
Dispatch: Go ahead 4-6.

Officer: I'll have one under arrest for DWLS (driving while license suspended), and I'll need the hook to my location.
Dispatch: 4-6 copy

Officer: Uhh radio, make sure the hook knows that he will be towing an ice cream truck.
Dispatch: (Laughing uncontrollably) You're not earning any points with the kids.

"as described in Genesis?"

If you are referring to Moses parting the Red Sea, that was in Exodus.
