One reader accused me of being obsessed by these little nuggets of human failure.
But stuff like this is just gold:
Assistance Rendered – Officers responded to a request first for help with a passenger who had not paid his taxi fare, and then to a report that said passenger had fallen into the water while climbing onto his boat. The passenger was out of the water and in his galley by the time officers arrived, and declined any medical care. He then paid for the taxi ride.
