“If I tell you some of the silly things they say, you will be surprised. People call in and pleasure themselves on our call lines. That’s the truth. People call in and when they hear the female call representatives they misbehave …,” he said.

He cautioned callers to desist from such acts as it leads to delays in responding to distress calls.
