FAIL

How to learn from someone else’s FAIL.

Greetings and Happy New Year folks! 2012 is finally here and for the first post of the new year, I'd like to share a video of FAILS from 2011. The video comes from TwisterNederland's YouTube channel and I must warn you that this video is not for children. I figure the best way to better ourselves is to learn by the mistakes of others. 2012 will be an excellent year if you can avoid the FAILS that made 2011. I for one will learn from these mistakes and once again, a warning that this video is not Read more [...]

The Good, The Bad, and The Funny of 911 Dispatch

Lately I have been talking about the good and the bad of 911 dispatch. Today I would like to talk about the funny stuff that happens. This is the stuff that no one hears about unless you're a co-worker or a friend who has heard or read our stories. I know I have written about a few already but here are some more to tickle your funny bone. When you think of 911 dispatch you think about emergency calls, police, ems, and the fire department. The majority of the calls we get on 911 are non-emergency. Read more [...]

An easy way to get arrested.

Last night I was cleaning up and shredding old papers when I found a "good job" letter from an old supervisor of mine. I read over it and laughed out loud as I thought about this call. I dig my job and I dig helping people but some people are just crazy and well...dumb. I know this sounds bad and don't get my words twisted but some people just don't think about anything or what they are doing. This is especially true when it comes to those who call when intoxicated. If you would like to know an easy Read more [...]

A little pissy are we?

How many of you have been so pissed off that you did something stupid in the midst of your rage? Take a moment and think about it? I'm sure we have all been there and it can include everything from swearing at the wrong time or person, throwing something, breaking something, or getting yourself kicked out of a public place. Being pissed off sucks and we do stupid crap when we are hulking out. In this post I want to talk about a couple incidents I was involved in. The first was several years back Read more [...]

Another chapter of FAIL – Joostberns Style

To continue my memories of FAIL, I thought I would share a story that involves a teacher of mine from high school. As I've stated in previous posts almost every lesson I have learned has been the hard way and this one is no exception. In high school I had a teacher named Mr. Joostberns and he taught several classes but the two I had with him were Government and History. Joostberns was an interesting and unique teacher. When the bell rang he would leave us with a final thought. Those included, "Smoke Read more [...]

Knock knock. Who’s there? FAIL!

Here's a double hit from Jabber Log today and this story includes an EPIC FAIL. I have done a lot of stupid things in my past and apparently it started early. I believe I was about seven or eight when one of my first FAIL moments occurred. I was with my family at my cousins house for dinner and my mom, who is a hair stylist, was cutting and coloring everyone's hair. All of the kids were outside running around in the yard and playing and my cousins Mary Beth and Amanda busted out some jawbreakers Read more [...]
