You never know what you’re going to hear when you pick up the phone if you’re a 911 operator. For a man named Keith, it was a workday that he would never forget.
“911, where is you emergency?”
“123 Main St.”
“Ok, what’s going on there?”
“I’d like to order a pizza for delivery.” (oh great, another prank call he thought).
“Ma’am, you’ve reached 911”
“Yeah, I know. Can I have a large with half pepperoni, half mushroom and peppers?”
“Ummm…. I’m sorry, you know you’ve called 911 right?”
“Yeah, do you know how long it will be?”
“Ok, Ma’am, is everything ok over there? do you have an emergency?”
The woman was lucky Keith picked up what she was trying to do, and that he asked all the right questions.
