What Silliness is This?
This time around we have everything from McMishaps, fake violinists at Target, a staring contest between neighbors, and dudes that really want to workout. Oh, and my goodness. We have to talk about the creeper that exposed himself at Jimmy Johns! I can only imagine how freaky fast the manager got him out of the store.
Are Fries Making Us Crazy?
When you see the calls our local police get from fast-food restaurants, you will be wondering if it is the grease in the air or just too much saltiness.

10 Ridiculous 911 Calls Shared by Evansville Watch
Did you know that most 9-1-1 operators can only handle around three years of the job? It is a very demanding job that requires the ability to multitask under very stressful conditions, and a lot of patience. Sometimes that patience is used to deal with complaints that aren't really emergencies. In fact, some of them are just plain ridiculous.
