Last month a frantic Maryland woman called 911 because her husband couldn’t breathe. For six minutes she listened to another person breathing: the 911 ambulance dispatcher. While they were asleep. (After the shock of the snoring dispatcher wears off, I invite you to turn your attention to the fact that she listened to this for six minutes!! Maybe it’s just me, but I would have called back after like two screaming what the heck?! This is an emergency!!!) The New York Daily News reported that no complications resulted from the delay.
If you work at a job that requires you to take 24-hour shifts, if you can’t hack it at hr 17….well, that sounds like a personal problem.
