[GalFisk] A nice relaxing day

Postby GalFisk » Wed Aug 22, 2018 6:22 am

The teacher ended up with dirty clothes and oil on his face.
He was also accused of making a fake emergency call.

He began the day thinking that his only task was to help the photography club find some nice motifs in town.

(Based on another Jennings radio play)

Did he make a false emergency call? If so.... Did he believe there was an emergency, but there wasn't? Did he misunderstand what an emergency was and call about something stupid like the jar of peanut butter being stuck? Did he deliberately elicit an emergency response so that the photography club could get photos of it?

So dividing paragraphs into A and B, is the timeline in the puzzle statement reverted? I mean...should it have been B A instead of A B as in the puzzle statement? If so did he ended up in that way in order to find a motif for the club?

dirty clothes and oil on his face --> auto mechanic? Blue collar? If so did he fake to be a blue collar? Was it its second job? The job of one of his relatives?

emergency call: relevant who accused him? Ambulances relevant? Emergency call to Police? Firemen? Emergency = he screamed "help"? He faked to make a phone call? Did he actually make it? Did someone necessitate help?

To be sure on timeline: did he take a mean of trabsport (car? Truck? Public mean? Bus?) with students of the club in order to reach town?

Was him the driver of the truck? Someone else? Hitchhike relevant?
Was there a fire? Was the truck on fire? Was him trying to repair the truck? Relevant his past job? The subject he teaches?
Was the teacher' s clothing normal ones? Was him masked? Are we talking about modern times? Is apartheid relevant (e.g. oil on the face that make his face colored?

Did the truck necissitate to be repaired? Relevant who was the owner of the truck? Was the truck stationary? Was it in movement? Did it have a trailer? Relevant?

Was a building on fire? Was the truck? Did the truck drive through the building, set it on fire, and get a flat tire? Was the scenario so ridiculous that the 911 operator believed it to be obviously false, but it was true? And then that made for a great photo since it was so ludicrous?

Can we assume that Jennings is involved in these events? Is he in the photography club? Does he come along to this trip in town? Is he responsible for his teacher's predicament?
Someone was stuck: the teacher? a student? Jennings? Stuck = physically stuck? Stuck in a location? Was there something holding them physically in place? (eg. they had their head stuck in a fence?) Or stuck in the sense that there were obstacles blocking their exit? (eg. stuck in a locked room?) Was this person (people?) being stuck the emergency? Did they get unstuck before the fire service got there?
So the teacher made an emergency call to the fire brigade, correct? Was he the only one to make this call? Did a student also make an emergency call? Jennings? Were there perhaps two emergency calls, one real and one fake, and the teacher was accused of making the fake one?
Who accused him - the fire brigade? the headmaster? the students? police? other?

Did he get his head stuck because he was trying to take a photo? Pose for a photo?
Did the flat tyre situation happen after he got stuck? before?
Did the teacher try to change the tyre? Did he think this would get Jennings unstuck somehow?

Is it relevant to know what Jennings was trying to take a photo of?
Yope to teacher changing the tyre... was he trying to drive the truck somewhere? Was he trying to help the driver of the truck? Was this truck a sort of special purpose truck (like a cement truck? garbage truck? fire engine...truck?) Was he not trying to change the tyre, but to inflate it?
So Jennings got stuck in a fence, his teacher called the fire brigade, but before they got there, Jennings gots free, and the firemen accuse the teacher of making a fake emergency call. Is this right? Did the flat tyre episode happen before the firemen got there?

So the flat tyre only happened after the firemen got there? Is the flat tyre Jennings' fault somehow? the teacher's fault? Did the driver of the truck demand that the teacher change the tyre? fix the truck? Did the flat tyre mean that the truck was relevant blocking something?

So the flat tyre only happened after the firemen got there? Yes, and... Is the flat tyre Jennings' fault somehow? the teacher's fault? No to both. Did the driver of the truck demand that the teacher change the tyre? fix the truck? Noish. The teacher approached the driver (explore why), and due to an unfortunate combination of attempted politeness (on both parts) and hearing issues (on the part of the driver), the teacher talked himself into a corner and felt he couldn't refuse the driver's request for assistance. Did the flat tyre mean that the truck was relevant blocking something? No.
