I understand them saying when we have a car free as well. I try to be honest with the people I am talking to, but I typically give a little more detail. All my units are tied up on domestics or a high priority call. They have been made aware, and one will be coming to you as soon as they can. Dispatchers have no control over when they go. You just tell them, and hope it's quickly, but they can't just up and walk away from another high priority call.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
