When the sun comes up to chase away the shadows of the night, there’s a change of guard. During the shift change the night watch passes on incidents that need to be documented. Sometimes the events are wild and fantastic, sometimes it’s just Eddie being a dick to the new kid because someone had to answer for why he’s in there.
The night started with Ed and Ruth making complaints that nobody bothers to call. To their surprise and pleasure Terry is managing to be better than they could have dreamt. Of course everyone else is still firmly planted their heads in their asses and can’t see things they need to get things in order. Of course Ed had to make a remark about the switchboard operators weight. He really does it because he cares about the kid, but doesn’t know how to not be an asshole.
During break one of the office staff happened to pass by the guard yard. They were saying how the music was actually really good. Thanked them for sharing it.
The major incident had so many moving parts. There was a wedding that a father knew nothing about. Decorations that were placed with care causing someone with a stick up their ass to complain claiming they were from the town board and what decorations were up were not allowed even though they had permits from the town to do them. The confused father became frustrated as the grooms party became rowdy in protest over the complaining person and the bride started getting upset. Turns out the father of the bride ended up being a shifter, and took out everyone who was causing the problem. This included not only the groom’s party but the groom as well. Reinforcement showed up and the father calmed down returning to man form and he was placed in shackles and detained for everyones safety. The bride was taken to the med facility for evaluation. She had no physical injuries but was emotionally distraught.
The cleaning crew stated it will take some time to get the town back in order. they’re operating with less people due to the exodus. Everyone who can afford to leave since the incident has left them unable to fill the workforce.
Switchboard is getting overloaded and needs to make repairs. They may need to contract out until they can get the circuits to stop overloading. They put in a job request form. It was filed at the end of their shift.
