The funny things you hear on the scanner…

Sometimes you hear funny things over the scanners overnight, including a couple gems from today:

“Nah, they’ve just been standing here on the side of the road. They’ve been playing with the flamethrower for about 10 minutes.”

That came over at about 3:20 a.m. No prior context for it — just straight out of the blue (or black, as it were).

Then, about a half an hour later:

‎”The way that guy was holding that blower there, it looked like he was riding a gigantic tricycle.”

Again, I have literally no context for either of these, but I wonder if it was the construction crew not too far away working on I-189 overnight because they came in really clearly on the scanner, which usually means they’re close.

Oh, the amusement of the overnight shift…
