    OMG can you imagine if this would have been a REAL emergency? That dispatcher could have cared less about the call or caller. I do realize they sometimes are overwhelmed with calls and are quite busy, but a little oomph in their response is always appreciated when it is an emergency. I try as best as I can to never ever call 9ll due to this fact, but sometimes you have too.

    The 911 operator needs more training on how to ask questions to the caller.

      Caller – “There’s a guy in my house with a knife”

      911 Operator – “What kind of knife?”

      Caller – “A big one”

      911 Operator – “What color is it?”

      Caller – “Ugh, you stabbed me, I’m dying.”

      911 Operator – “Can you hand the phone to the guy with the knife?”

      I swear that most 911 calls sound similar to the one above if not worse.

        Gotta agree with you on that.

        This is too funny….but true…I know they have a dialogue they have to follow, but come on a human response is always better than reading out of a book…

        My all time favorite was when I (yes I did) called 911 to report a car stopping as it came around a corner by my house, where a group of teenage boys were hanging out. A kid jumped out of the passenger side and slid across the hood holding a handgun up in the air. It was easy to see, they were directly under a street light and yes, I was looking at them. The 911 operator asked, “is the gun real?” hmmm
