"Another caller said she had a leak in her bathroom but didn't want to call a plumber as it would be too expensive.

"She asked if we could go and sort it out for her."

Makes sense. Police are far less qualified so they ought to be cheaper. Don't call a mechanic until the police have tested their meagre means on your problem, people!

If I'm shown as having been active here recently it's either because I've been using the gallery, because I've been using the search engine looking up something from way back, or because I've been reading the most excellent UK by-elections thread again.

I find this particularly relateable to my line of work (for a local authority - not the Police!)
