Time for another 'Anyone Listening Who'! This week, Slacker thinks more of you have an amazing adoption story. Steve thinks more of you have an epic 911 story. Lil D thinks more of you have a spectacular hot tub story.
A woman in Brazil went in search of her long-lost mother and found out she has unknowingly married her own brother. The 39-year-old woman and 37-year-old man have been together for seven years and have a six-year-old daughter together. The couple spent their lives trying to find their respective mothers, who were both called Maria, and had both abandoned their children when they were still babies. After a long search she found out this week that her mom and her husband’s mom is the same woman. Despite the news, the two plan to stay together .... only death will separate them.
A Florida man who was pulled over for speeding tried to get out of the ticket by calling 911 to report a fake murder. The cop who pulled the man over was about to check on the “murder” call when he was told the man in the car made the emergency call. The man was given a $209 for speeding, and was also charged with a third-degree felony for misusing 911.
A cat at a Sarasota, FL animal rescue somehow managed to dial 911 when nobody was looking.
Zeke the cat lives in one of the office. Staff there say that on Monday, when the office's human resident left for lunch, Zeke dialed 911 on the office phone. Sarasota County dispatch got no response when they answered, so they called back and spoke to a volunteer at the front desk, who had no idea who placed the call. Turns out, Zeke sprawled across the phone, with the handset off the hook. Staffers say Zeke has a reputation for walking on laptops and other electrical devices.
Slacker says that every week he has believed that he will win and this week he is a little nervous. He doesn’t think Steve should be in charge of the decisions for epic 911 calls.
Steve says that he gets to be the decision maker about what is considered an epic story. He says he wants a story about a fire starting and a dog calling 911 and the fire department shows. He says that he would have to cut ties if he found out about he was with his sister.
Lil D says he read a reddit article he read about a woman who called 911 to signal to the police she was in trouble. He says that the at least the Brazilian couple is half siblings so it’s not that bad. Lil D says that it’s going to be rough whenever they go in public.
Whose side are you on?
