"Hello," said the operator. Noting the cyclist's whereabouts and mobile number, she finally asked which service was required.
"Ambulance... and police," he gasped. "Hurry, please, I'm in agony here!"
"I can get an ambulance to you in about an hour," said the operator. "Police in half a hour."
The cyclist groaned. "That long? It's an emergency?"
"I could do a pizza in ten minutes maximum, sir," the operator suggested.
