Last year I earned overtime by helping with the New York City 411 system handling fireworks complaints. Your chart above is pretty much on spot.
Honestly, it broke my heart because of all of these people who couldn't sleep, not just that night, but because people down the street had been shooting off fireworks all night the entire week previously, or who had family members who were vets and were having PTSD because of the explosions. All I could do was to offer sympathy and patch them through to their local 911 dispatcher, who simply didn't have enough officers available to handle noise complaints in addition to the usual robbery and mayhem of a weekend in NYC.
(If the caller threatened to go out there and take care of those $$$$$$$$ himself, that was a different matter, and got patched to a different office to take care of things immediately.)
Elon really boosted the pope’s spirits when they met this week.
In his recent video Michael Matt ran a piece from Rome Reports about Pelosi receieving communion -- the presenter said that there were many priests present & that they may not have known who Pelosi was --
Matt's retort was that it must have been Father I M Clueless!
Made me laugh out loud
That's why a true conversation requires you to listen, as well.
I told the kids we have cats to keep the elephants out of the house.
They tell me there aren't any elephants in the house.
I say see, it's working.
Here's a Happy Monday to all our Brits and Aussies on this board:
My Nan is going to one of those suicide clinics in Switzerland, but don't tell her. It's a surprise.
"Good Lord! Open the coffin!"
I'm trying to recapture my lost youth.
I really need to get that cellar door fixed.
As a family we couldn't decide whether to have Nana buried or cremated.
So in the end we let her live.
I bought a Microsoft Advent calendar. If you open too many windows they all shut again for no reason.
My old girlfriend kept trying to put me down. That's one of the hazards of going out with a veterinarian.
I can count all the chainsaw accidents I've had on the fingers of one hand.
