I think today had to be the slowest, strangest day at work for a long time.
Call number one was to an argument between neighbours/ex-lovers (at 8 O'clock in the morning!). One of the many ways that people from my area kick off their days. On arrival we were greeted by a lady who was clearly suffering from some mental health issues - I guessed because she said "Don't even try and get me back in that hospital" after answering the door. She also said she wasn't going to "No police station" as she led us up the stairs.
She was in the middle of moving, apparently, which is possibly why the house was so messy. She stated her neighbour thinks he's her boyfriend when he's not and had been making threats. However there was a lot about the story that didn't make sense and she couldn't actually tell us why she'd decided to call 999 at that particular moment in time and got a blue light response in treacherous weather. She was left with some words of advice and a quick visit to do likewise to boyfriend/neighbour/acquaintance who was of a similar calibre.
The next call was to a disturbance in the street that turned out to be a male detaining someone for stealing his moped. Unfortunately by the time we arrived (very quickly!) he had let go after an angry crowd had formed around him. After an extensive drive-around looking for the suspect(s) he was advised to attend the local nick to report as he had no details of the registration of the vehicle on him. Strangely he showed us the bike the suspect had left which turned out to be stolen too (result!) and was restored to its owner.
After trying to explain the last call to a very confused control room it was in for some tea and some paperwork. Turns out one of the earlier calls (not mentioned) resulted in my crew getting a complaint, that was soon sorted though (and totally unfounded!).
Last call was to a damage only RTA where one of the drivers had failed to stop. That was until the informant caught up with him and he realised he'd hit her. We were cancelled en route however as we were just round the corner we thought we'd fly the flag. On turning up she had decided the occupants of the other vehicle were a bit strange and she didn't feel comfortable. They'd exchanged details and we waited for her to move off before we left.
Back to the station after that and more paperwork. The next shift were on in force quite early on which meant we were relieved half an hour early (which was great!).
