101 Things the Fire Department wishes you knew

...for the chocking...

Look again. This call is not for a choking, but for a chocking. How can I trust what the dispatchers tell us when they can't spell? Mistyped you say? Look at how far away the 'c' is from the 'k' and the 'o.' What have I been dispatched to? Will I be placing a wheel chock behind this person?
Here's just the recent ones I can recall...

...respond for the psychic...(psychotic or psych eval maybe?)
...aboniminal pain...(ab pain or a large white hairy guy?)
...elderly nabor...(a type of bird?)
...bicicle accdnt...(icicles? Really?)
...2th hurts...(took me a minute too - Tooth hurts) More on her later
...cs flms fm blcny...(Sees flames from balcony - I let this one slide)

We all make mistakes, sure, but some are just so much fun.
