    Weird Happenings

    An agency with which I am familiar has an odd frequent caller. He has a form of OCD which causes him to call in 2-3 days a week to ask if a pedestrian has been hit or if there has been an accident at various locations. He calls as many as 5-6 times within an hour or so and asks the dispatcher to repeat the answer that there has been no such accident. Apparently it is hard to get angry with the guy because he has explained that he has this disorder and has received treatment but he is strongly compelled to call. He is very polite and apologetic.

    Do you know of any "regulars" that are oddities?

    For the size of city I work in, we have a huge number of lunatics.

    When I was hired, a co-worker told me "There's 27,000 people in this town, and 25,000 are fucking crazy."


    And a few years ago we had the FBI in town for an investigation. One of their agents was going to a house to do an interview, and was riding with one of our investigators. On the way he was staring out the window slack jawed at what he was seeing. Our investigator asked him if he was alright, and the agent said something to the effect of "I've been in almost every single city in the state of Minnesota, and have been to all 50 states for investigations....and I've never seen so many freaks in one city in my life."

    We lucky few, we band of brothers. For he who today sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.

    We have a guy that has a condition affecting his short term memory. He truly can't remember things that happened 1 or 2 hours before. He is often taken advantage of by the local druts. He will loan them his car, or they may actually take his keys, but he doesn't remember it. He calls in his car being stolen at least twice monthly.

    My most memorable time with him was when his brother, who lived in the same apartment complex, died. I was doing the on scene initial investigation. Their sister was called to the scene, but it was over an hour before she could get there. Seeing all the activity, he walked to the scene. I made the death notification & others from the complex escorted him back to his apartment........About 20 minutes later, here comes Ronnie again. He saw all the activity, and wondered what was going on at his brother's apartment. I do the death notification and we get him back to his apartment.........A little later, here he comes again. I mean this is like a bad version the movie "Ground Hog Day". The family arrived after I had already told him 3 times about his brother and we went through it again together. They took him away from the scene so we could get our work done & to save him any more trauma.

    Hell, I don't drink the water in town. It's the only thing I can figure justifying our goofballs. We've got the guy who is the walking clinical definition of paranoid schizophrenia. He's reported things from insidious plots involving bubbles, table salt, and Mcdonalds coffee to his landlord being a cocaine kingpin because she talked about snow coming in... on February afternoon with flurries in the forecast. We had the guy who would chase me down, wanting to give me pictures of people drinking and driving. (Last I saw, he was in a real happy place on some very serious meds after the day he started taking potshots off his roof with a BB gun.) We've got the Adderal adict with scabies... We've got the mother/daughter couple where they're both off their rocker, and mom keeps reporting the daughter stealing the car registered & titled in both their names (daughter is 50ish...); last month, they were best friends, and it was all the other kids after mom's dough. And I'm not even counting pass-throughs on the way to CIA HQ, or kids.

    Yeah... I don't drink the water.

    The Princess- calls constantly to report some kids in the neighborhood are harassing her.
    Norman Deggs- constantly was coming into the police department demanding to be taken out of the computer.
    Alma Marie- never takes a bath and walks at least 30 miles a day, every day.
    Donna Harris- would answer her door naked with an ax.
    Deborah- (deceased) I personally watched her have an argument with a Mercedes. Walked into the PD once with 5 of her children and said she had enough and turned them all over to OCS.
    Mary- Fell in love with an ex Sgt. The first time I met her she was in a full wedding dress mad as hell because the Sgt. in question stood her up and didn't come get her for their wedding. She also walked into the PD and stripped off her see through night gown and began slapping her crotch screaming he can't handle this monkey.
    Charles- Charles has a bicycle with a Sanford and Son scrap trailer behind it and a microphone from an old police radio with the cord cut.
    And then there's this guy...

    As you can see he comes complete with uniform shirt and badge. Believes without doubt he is a cop. We sometimes have to run him off of scenes. Occasionally you can find him and his bicycle (motors unit) on the side of the road running radar with a hair dryer.
    Here he is directing traffic in Wal Mart.


    This doesn't even scratch the surface I promise. I'm looking for a picture of the bike.

    I've hit a good luck streak with crazies. Only good one I've had lately is the woman who says her hands are lethal weapons registered with the state, and that she can't wear gloves because she can be arrested for having concealed weapons.
    The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

    At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat

    An amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he cant get it wrong.

    They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.

    We used to have a customer call in and tell us that he just read a book, and he wanted to tell you all about it. I always hung up on him. There are people that call customer service to have the ad read to them and ask which aisle each item is located.

    One customer calls me the Colonel. He announces it loudly every time. For some reason he latched on to another coworker that won't even give him the time of day. He asked me if a cat got his tongue. I told him he just served 10 years in jail for murder and not to bother him. He does not bother that coworker anymore.
