Oops, sounds like some one is not having a good day. After that phone call it probably got worse.
I remember a hilarious video of an angry tow driver and the dispatcher getting annoyed with him ranting on the radio. I could never find it again the past few years unfortunately. I found it when looking for LTR videos on those old black/grey colored radio shack scanners like the old Pro-92 type

I was doing an all day GMRS service search and record on the TRX1 and ended up catching this mishap at the local gravel supply yard when playing back :ROFLMAO: RIP those insides.

Heard this exchange between a male and female officer on a PD conference channel:

"No one cares about your Christmas card."

"You're dead to me."

"It's hanging on my fridge. Calm down."

"Good boy."

What is that site? Is it an archive of everything your scanner receives or is it recordings off the broadcastify feeds?

waste management channel: "u hear weeds legal now :sneaky: " "oh yeah? :D"

another good one I heard recently on a narcotics channel: "alright I got a red impala pulling up to complex now oh nvm he's just passing through" "wow nice call out dumbass" "hey man I'm just looking out"

this one had to be the wildest by far tho on a city landscape channel: "you think they'd care if I peed off the back of the truck?" "hey man do what u gotta do I ain't seen nothin"

From a local school district's TRBO system:

Person-1 "Has anyone seen the substitute for Mrs. BlahBlah's class?

Person-2 "I just walked by and she was sitting at the desk."

Person-3 "I'm there now and that's a student sitting at the desk; I don't know where the substitute is."

P-1 "Well can someone find the substitute?"

Unknown person "We just found her in the parking lot and she's drunk; is the SRO on this channel?"

Heard a funny one last night on a railroad yard channel.

Employee: "How did these cars get on this track?"

Yard master: "I assume an engine put them there."

Employee: "Do you have any idea who?"

Yard master: "Uh..No"

Employee:" I thought these were in storage but I guess they changed their mind."

Yard master: "Yeah I guess they did"
I heard one very similar to that one many years ago. Yeah railroads can be funny.

Just came over My local FD channel

Warning, Its a Queasy one, Read @ your own peril

EMS dispatched to local doctors office For a burning sensation in the groin,

Possible cause is a maggot infestation ,Insert vomit joke here

Poor dispatcher, She had a hard time saying that, You could tell

On my 50th year of scanning, Thats a 1st for me

Yeah I would imagine that it would be interesting in reactions. Why didn't the stupid doctor just call for a non emergency transport instead of 911?

Some offices don't offer or have access to non-emergency transport; they rely on local EMS.

CM I much agree with you

Belvdr, It is a city of 100,000 people + & a dedicated Professional Paid 7 company FD, Quite good, Private bus service though

BUT

Everything is CYA around here, Hence calling the PM's from FD & Then The Bus PM's when they show up

Welcome to the litigious world that we live in
