Overheard on the scanner, 2014 edition

Overheard on the scanner recently:

Dispatch: “Ambulance 84?”

Ambulance 84: (sirens wailing) “84, go ahead.”

Dispatch: “84, are you taking the MVC call or the scheduled transfer?”

Ambulance 84: (sirens still wailing) “What?”

Dispatch: “84, are you taking the crash or the transfer?”

Ambulance 84: (siren now changed to Yelp mode) “[unintelligible]”

Dispatch: “84, are you doing the MVC?”

A84: “Yes.”

You could hear the sigh in his voice.  I wasn’t sure whether to scream at the radio or laugh.

Laughter is the best medicine, I guess.
