Spell It

Jack calls an ambulance for his friend who has been hit by a car.

The operator asks for his location.

Jack says “I’m outside 28 Eucalyptus Road”.

The operator knows there is no room for error and for clarity asks, “How do you spell that?”

There’s shuffling and sounds of straining at the other end of the phone. “Jack?” says the operator, concerned. More shuffling and grunting.

“Sorry about that” says Jack. “I just dragged him ‘round to 1 Oak Street”
