A desperate housewife called police in Germany after a friend chatted to her for 30 hours – non-stop.

Ingrid Schuettler, 48, told police she’d invited her friend round for a cup of tea and a chat.

But once they started talking, her pal “would not shut up” and kept it up all through the night and the next day.

A spokesman for police in Speyer said: “After an incredible 30 hours of listening non-stop to her friend and several unsuccessful attempts to get her to leave, the woman saw no other solution than to call us.”

Officers persuaded Schuettler’s friend to leave.
