Imagine getting home after a long shift at 4 am and going for a jog to clear your head. Sounds harmless, right? Well, for one Emergency Medical Dispatcher, this routine caused a confrontation with a new neighbor. The neighbor, who the dispatcher had never met, was constantly watching and making vague threats about calling the police. Eventually, the dispatcher lost their temper and told the neighbor to mind their own business. But was the dispatcher in the wrong for jogging at 4 am? Would it freak you out if your neighbor did this? Read on to find out more.

Stay healthy, but also stay quiet at 4am! 🏃‍♀️🤫
