Do you know what the concrete center divider is called? It’s a median, but for some reason a lot of people call it a meridian.
The other night I went to a call where a male struck the median and then crashed into a traffic signal pole. The impact caused the vehicle to roll over and come to rest on the its side.
There was a witness, who stopped and told me what happened. When I was done with his statement, I asked him for his information. He told me his name and said he lived on Meridian Street. I wanted to joke with him and ask if he really meant he lived on Median Street instead. I skipped the joke because it would’ve been too hard to explain.
I still thought it was funny he lived on Meridian Street when a median was struck.
As you can tell, it’s the simple things that entertain me. But if you heard the word meridian as much as I have, you’d be entertained too.
Reminds me of when I used to answer 911 calls – I was always exasperated when the RP wanted to remain “unanimous.”
LOL!! That’s funny.
