Spring Forward

From my friend who is still a dispatcher:

"I had some old lady call 911 to ask how to set her clock tonight."

Too Much TV

I take a call from a little girl who says her brother is hitting her. My first thought is a family domestic situation. I ask how old she is and she answers 4. The next logical question was to ask how old her brother is. When she answered 2, I knew something wasn't quite right here. She then hands the phone to her dad and says: "Dad, talk to the nanny." After telling the father I was a 911 dispatcher, he quickly realized what had happened. Apparently the family was watching Nanny 911 on television and the precocious 4 year old decided she needed that nanny to come and take care of her little brother :)
