    Finally, an angrier phone answerer than Will

    The 13-year-old saw her father hit by a car while he was changing a tire on the side of a highway about 20 miles from Baltimore. She watched the vehicle speed away from the scene. Then she called 911.

    As she struggled to explain the situation, the dispatcher told her to “stop whining.”

    The father died later that Sunday night and public outrage has grown through the week after media reports of the accident and the exchange with the 911 dispatcher flooded the airways. People were overwhelmingly critical of the dispatcher by a ratio of about 10 to 1, Capt. Russ Davies, a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Fire Department, told the Los Angeles Times on Friday.

    “The dispatcher has been placed in a job where he has no public contact until we complete the process of the investigation,” Davies said. There is no time frame for completing the probe, he said on Friday.

    Our dispatchers make me want to punch the radio most of the time......I can't imagine how they talk to the actual callers.

    There are some that are fantastic but five seconds dealing with one of the many dolts causes any good to be forgotten.

    i trained to be a dispatcher for rapid response years ago, i was right out of high school & stupidly failed the piss test about a month in. seemed like a stressful gig from what i experienced, but i don't see how anyone with a heart could treat someone like that.

    This is the type of case where no investigation is needed. You hear the tape, you give Skippy a box and tell him to pack his shit and get the fuck out.

    Listening to 911 calls on Dateline and 48 hours, they are pretty curt with people who are hysterical. Perhaps they're trained to break people out of it so they can convey the information needed.
