I Lost My Job With Lifeline

Using your last lifeline

Giving common emergency response can backfire



I don’t know why, but I was just sacked from my job with Lifeline.


They just wouldn’t talk to me about it.

Here’s what happened ...

A bloke phoned and said, “I’m Abdul Mohammed, and I’m really
going to kill myself. I’m lying on the railway track now,
waiting for the train to come!”

All I said was ...

“Remain calm and stay on the line!”
