True Detective Stories

By Wyatt Earp | November 28, 2008

Apparently, the start of the holiday season brings out the dumb in everyone.

This is an actual phone conversation I had this morning at work. It is printed in its entirety.

(Phone Rings) Me: “Northwest Detective Division, Detective Earp speaking, may I help you?”
Caller: “Yeah, what part of the city are you in?”

(At this point I quickly reach for the duct tape.)

Me: “Um, the northwest part, ma’am. We’re Northwest Detective Division.”
Caller: “The northwest part of Philadelphia?

(At this point, I wrap head in the aforementioned duct tape.)

Me: “Yes, ma’am. We’re in Philadelphia.”
Caller: “Oh. Okay.” (Hangs up.)

After conversations like these, I am beginning to think that FX should change the name of their hit sitcom to, “It’s Always Stupid in Philadelphia.”

    You should’ve said something sarcastic and followed it by saying “Here’s Your Sign!”

    :-) One of those days… One wonders what area code she ‘thought’ she was dialing…

    Admiral – You got that right, but at least the benefits are great.

    Sully – The Twilight Zone.

    E.L. – Yeah, I keep running out for some reason.

    RT – I think she was calling Mars.

    deMontjoie – I’ll take a dozen, please!

    Morgan – Yeah, but my southern accent needs a lot of work.

    Old NFO – I guess the “215″ never registered to this broad.
