Example of a Funny 911 Script:
Dispatcher: 9-1-1, what’s your emergency?
Caller: I’m trapped in my house.
Dispatcher: Trapped? Is someone holding you there?
Caller: Someone? No. But there is a frog on the front porch.
Dispatcher: A frog?
Caller: Yes, a frog.
Dispatcher: Okay, but what is preventing you from leaving the house?
Caller: I told you. There is a frog on the front porch and I’m afraid of frogs.
Dispatcher: Don’t you have another door to the house?
Caller: No. There is only one door and I can’t get out of the house with the frog sitting there.
Dispatcher: Why don’t you take a broom and sweep the frog off the porch?
Caller: I can’t do that!
Dispatcher: Why not?
Caller: I told you, I’m afraid of frogs. He might get me.
Dispatcher: I’m not sure I can help you with this.
