Certain jobs require a vocation. Doctor, teacher, nurse, soldier or policeman are among them. In these professions, it is very important to have passion for what you are doing and feel that the work is a service.
People call the police with various strange things, among which there are also silly jokes. Officers are so accustomed to unusual requests, but they do not neglect them, as their help can be someone’s only salvation. Police officers from the town of Mount Pleasant, Tennessee (USA) were in such a situation. An old man called them, introduced himself and asked if the police could bring him something to eat.
The police officers from the town of 5,000 took it very seriously and went to his apartment. It turned out that the old man had not eaten for two days. The cause of the tragedy was a nurse who emptied his account, took the cash and disappeared, leaving the senior to his fate.

The police did more than was required by their police duties.
