stay out of trouble

I'll read the newspaper:
Brenda Orr of Doylestown was trapped in a burning bed, immobilized by multiple sclerosis, when she dialed 911 on Jan. 29.
Not good.
Twenty-eight seconds passed before a Bucks County dispatcher answered Orr's call.
But less than thirty!
Then he put her on hold.
I'm sorry, did you say 'hold'?
It took 26 more seconds for a second dispatcher to pick up.
And then the dispatcher asked, "pick-up or delivery?"

How could she dance while the earth is turning?

How could she sleep when her bed was burning?

911 is a joke in D-town.
