    They had someone on their way to him so it didn't make a difference.

    Maybe it will teach the girl who called to not be a cunt.

    They should also train the 911 callers to ignore assholes and tell them to calm down.

    Local newspaper did a story a few years ago about 9-1-1 operators making around 100K year, which is A LOT for many folks

    13 dollars an hour here. And I've done overtime on the phones, it's maybe the most annoying job in the department. People calling 911 asking if trick or treating is still on for Christ sake

    You should never be an asshole when it could be life and death and/or ever word you ever utter is recorded.

    That number would vary extremely widely based on the location. I knew a guy who did that years back. He was borderline retarded.

    I had a friend who was a 911 operator. He got paid shit and was constantly having nightmares after talking to a gun shot victim who died on the phone waiting for the ambulance.
