I kinda have to agree with dude, somewhat. I woke up one morning to discover that my lawnmower had been stolen from my yard while I slept during the night. It was a work morning, I noticed the mower was missing as I was getting in my car to commute into work. I called the Woonsocket police to report the theft. The dispatcher stated that someone would be out to take a report. I waited on my porch for over two hours before I called back to inquire about the delay. I was rudely informed that there are other things going on in the city beyond my situation and they would get to me when they got to me. I waited another hour and a half before calling back to express my disbelief at the aburdity of thr situation only to be asked if they could call me back at a later time and take a report via telephone. Yikes!
