  1. HA! That's a job I'm glad I don't have. I liked the one calling to see if the bank is open on Saturday the best.

  2. This is why I can't work anywhere that I would have contact with the general public. It would kill me to be polite to these people day after day.

  3. Locked out of the refrigerator while pregnant? Now, that's a bonafide reason to call the police. :)

    I don't know how those 911 operators keep their cool -- they are exceptionally patient.

  4. Yep, I've worked 911 for almost 27 years and crap like this is typical. Sometimes I think I'd have less contact with nut cases if I worked the nurses desk at a psychiatric hospital.
