Perry – posting this to my blog. Blog readers (all, you know, 3 of you), this was sent to me by a classmate of mine. Fascinating.It’s interesting – I listened to NY, LA, and Chicago (the three cities I’ve called home!) and all the dispatchers seem to be female! Actually, there are a lot of female voices here in Chicago (which I’m listening to right now).
In Chicago, there’s a disturbance at a club by an “extremely intoxicated male refusing to leave,” and a suspicious-looking auto.
OH they just said that there’s an incident, and was cautioned to “be professional.” errrr?!
The ambient music is kinda creepy. I turned it off. It makes it feel as though it’s pre-recorded.
