Paddy’s friend is hit by a car so he phones for an ambulance.
Paddy: ‘Get an ambulance here quick, he’s bleeding from his nose and ears and I tink both his legs are broke.’
Operator: ‘What’s your location sir?’
Paddy: ‘Outside number 28 Eucalyptus Street …’
Operator: ‘How do you spell that sir?’
Silence…. (heavy breathing).
Operator: ‘Are you there sir?’
More heavy breathing. A minute later….
Operator: ‘Sir, can you hear me?’
Repeated and repeated until….
Operator in panic mode: ‘Sir, please answer me. Can you still hear me?’
Paddy: ‘Sorry bout dat… I couldn’t spell Eucalyptus, so I’ve dragged him round to number 3 Oak Street .’
