    What is the silliest or most pointless message you ever received? Receiving on call air after commit time is always funny. Once I received a message that said, "When boating, ensure that all occupants of the vessel are utilizing personal floatation devices." Huh????
    But the dumbest message I ever received was one day when a series of tornados blew through our area. The message we received was as follows: "Tornados have been seen in the area. You are instructed to keep working but be safe!"

    "how are you"

    Which I reply, "fine thanks for asking, how are you."

    or "what are you doing?"

    Reply "working, thanks"

    Once they wanted to come out and give me extra work, so they asked me where I was, and I replied back "earth". This went back and forth 3 times before they lost their temper. Then I had to tell them.

    The other week we got a message at 2:30 saying "code 5 is available". Yesterday, a fellow driver and I got the same message just as we sat down to eat lunch. It would have only made good sense to let the drivers know that sometime in the morning.
