Dispatcher: 42, you’re clear now. You like to let 40 know anything? Did you see him?
2342: Yeah, I seen him.
Dispatcher: Just as long as you talked to him and did what you could do.
2307: 2307, mobile with 2340…
2307: That guy is a constant complainer about the dogs off of leashes over there. I talk to him on a weekly basis. Just keep that in mind, just a chronic complainer.
2340: OK, thank you…2342?
2342: Yeah, I told the people to put the dog on a leash, and they did, so I don’t know what more this guy wants.
2340: Is he still at the beach house?
2342: He’s ridin’ around on a ten-speed with, like, red shorts and some goofy-lookin’ hat. Don’t worry, he’ll find you.
