Wicked Local Brookline reports that around 3:20 p.m. on Aug. 12, a Beacon Street resident called 911 to report "that their apartment smelled like garlic."
Brookline sounds like a real hellhole.
My personal fav is
Assault and battery on Beacon Street: At 5:31 a.m. a caller reported that at midnight his roommate threw a mayonnaise jar at the back of his head.
Lots of marijuana smoking by teens too
Why cant we get this level of detail in Boston??
Non-emergency line? Does that work everywhere?
I would say, "That's all for the best, sir. If it didn't smell like garlic, it would probably smell like you."
Acetylene gas, used in welding, and extremely flammable and explosive, smells like garlic. But then again, if I were calling 911 about a suspected gas leak, I would probably describe it as "smells like welding gas," not "smells like garlic." And for sure I'd be doing it from my cell phone while standing in the street outside.
Is there a restaurant in the building?
"Aggressive Skunk" smells like "garlic in the house" sometimes, too.
Airwick Puttanesca scent!
I learned two things after reading the link: there are mountain lions in Brookline and some people in that town have such lame lives that they are still calling 911 on people for smoking weed in 2018.
Were the off leash dogs smoking weed?
The last is actually kind of disturbing. Perhaps a Republican candidate for something. Hope the mountain lion gets him.
