Maybe Some Extra-Strength Tide Would Work

We had a female call in regarding a radioactive clothes-pile in her room.

**** How long does laundry have to pile up before it becomes radioactive? I've let mine pile up for a while and never before has it required disposal in a container marked with skull and crossbones.

A person suffering from psychosis is not funny. How about some empathy?

What do you say when you get a call like that? I know you get training to handle strange situations, but there have to be some stumpers.

The key is to never deny service. An officer will take the info and decide whether to call or stop out. Creative questioning also comes into play. More times than not the "radioactive clothes-piles" calls are fronts for something else.

In terms of empathy, I have plenty. I do appreciate all comments though and my only suggestion is not to be so quick to judge since things such as tone, inflection, sarcasm, etc. are not always easily identifiable in type.

well... that's a good one and i think the only proper way you can answer that is to know her bathing habits... you know, i never wear dirty clothes so mine can probaly pile for like a month or so before spontaniously igniting and blowing my whole trailer park to smitherenes... but some of these dirty motherfuckers, you know the ones - they sit down next to you and you start leaning down to see if its your feet that are stinking through your fucking shoes and as relieved you are that its not you - you are just as disgusted to be within ear/nose shot of this son of a bitch - yeah, probaly a small pile of their clothes are lethal - in that case, advise them to evacuate immediatly.

An elderly female said that there were people in her television set. Her complaint was that they wouldn't let her in! Bastards! Some of the elderly really need to be referred to Adult Protective Services. Its sad.
