    Default Scanner chuckles

    We have a scanner we listen to because of hubby's job. It's a higher grade scanner so I can even hear truck to truck, and not just the base's talking.

    So tonite, we have the scanner on, and hubby comes in this room, just chuckling and asked me if I heard the police call in the village closest to us. No dear, I say. So he says.......someone called in about a white truck driving down the street and shining a light onto people's houses as he went along.
    So the police get called out.....just a guy trying to make his deliveries.....
    a FEDEX truck .......hehehehe....

    The other day I was listening to it, and I hear them talking about a guy walking down the street in the wee hours of the morning, carrying his can of beer and the only thing he had on was his socks........( PS.....it's winter here )

    ROFL! I listen to the scanner on the computer sometimes. It always makes me laugh when they are dispatching for a car/deer accident and they say "The deer has left the scene" Or even better..... "Deer is deceased at this time" Like that is going to change at some point?!?! LOL!

    I wouldn't want to know where he got the frostbite if he did!

    That is too funny! That poor Fedex man! I heard that they would be working through the holidays! That poor guy...imagine just trying to do your job...working on a holiday only to get stopped by a cop! Poor guy!

    im looking forward to hearing the funny things -- got a handheld scanner for Christmas. i live right beside a hospital and hear the sirens or helicopter flying in (always saying a little prayer that everyone is ok)
    in the past 2 days, ive been surprised at the things they actually say over the scanner that you would think would be more confidential

    i agree poor fedex man --i'm sure he is ready for the holidays to be over

    I use my scanner quite a bit. For up to date information, it is second to none. This time of the year I can hear the snow plow drivers talk about the road conditions. After a bad storm, the first responders will do damage assessment so I know of any roads blocked with trees. It is also quite funny from time to time. Hearing school bus drivers trying to find a child who just decides to go home with a friend without permission shows they have the patience of Job.
