Dispatcher: Slow down, sir. Tell me what happened. Has anyone harmed you?

Caller: Yeah! Not yet, but Dr. Yah Yah has put about a million hexes on me! He's here, and he's trying to kill me. The man is a witch doctor, and he's a known killer! He put an egg in my tree and spiders in my pillow, dammit!
