One of those calls

Every now and then you get dispatched to one of those, "I can't believed someone called in about this!" type of calls.

So I'm 10-8 (in service) and RALB (riding around lookin' bitchin') through South City enjoying the fact that I'm riding a motorcycle and it's freakin February!

I get dispatched to a concerned citizen about geese in the roadway and she's afraid someone will run them over.

So being the immature adult that I am, I advised the dispatcher, "I copy on the jaywalking geese, I'm familiar with the subjects and will advise on cover."  The dispatcher chuckled in her response of "10-4"

I get to the area where the reported felonious jaywalking Canadian feathered friends were last spotted.

2WT: "Mary18, '97'"(meaning I'm on scene) and Code 4 (everything is a-okay) on an area check.
Dispatch: "Copy 10-97, Code 4 area check."
2WT: "Mary18, I'm UTL (unable to locate).  The gaggle of geese were GOA (gone on arrival). I'm 10-8.
Dispatch: (laughing) Copy, the gaggle of geese are GOA."

It's not too often that we'll make the dispatchers laugh on the radio, the motor cops in our division make it a point to brighten their day.
