Paddy phones an ambulance because his mate's been hit by a car.

Paddy: 'Get an ambulance here quick, he's bleeding from his nose and
ears and I tink both his legs are broken.'
Operator: 'What is your location sir?'
Paddy: 'Outside number 28 Eucalyptus Street .'
Operator: 'How do you spell that sir?'
Silence.... (heavy breathing) and after a minute.
Operator: 'Are you there sir?'
More heavy breathing and another minute later.
Operator: 'Sir, can you hear me?'
This goes on for another few minutes until....
Operator: 'Sir, please answer me. Can you still hear me?'
Paddy: 'Yes, sorry bout dat... I couldn't spell eucalyptus, so I just
dragged him round to number 3 Oak Street .'

One of the things I HATE a/b my 'hood in Dayton is that all the street names are so weird I always have to spell them when someone needs my addy. In NYC, almost all the streets are either just a number or a single letter of the alphabet. Streets all run east-west, so just add the E or W prefix, and the avenues all run north-south. Too easy.

Here the streets are in Hawaiian - so most cannot even pronounce , let alone spell it.
