Is it just me or has there been a spike in reporting things that just seem like normal behavior? A guy with a metal detector, a small boat on the beach and swimming. Really? This morning I witnessed two squirrels chasing each other, maybe I should have called.

I swim in the pool when it rains with my fur coat on and shoes. In my country it is normal to swim this way.

I once broke a tooth on a crab rangoon. I called the police. in my country it is unusual to break teeth on crab rangoons.
