Dumbest Reasons Folks Called 911
We've all called 911 before and most of the time it is by accident. I did it a few weeks ago myself. I was napping and did not silence my phone. As I reached for it with my eyes closed, I accidentally hit Michigan 911. The phone started screeching that I hit 911. As I jumped up I hung up right away. They did call me back and I apologized and said what I did. They were cool and said if I do it again, not to hang up, just stay on and say it was a misdial or accident.
So here are some of the craziest 911 calls according to Someecards.com. How about a woman calling 911 because 2 squirrels were fighting in her back backyard. Really? Last I heard cops don't arrest squirrels. Or what about a strange and deadly creature in the backyard turning out to be a hedgehog or a big possum.
This was a real emergency. A young man called 911 because he burnt his tongue badly eating a baked potato.
I love this. Early last Christmas morning, a lady called 911 to ask how to get the cranberry sauce out of the can without it coming out in chunks? The operator said open the other end and slide it out on a plate. Should people be fined for calling 911 for stupid stuff? Maybe.
911 Operators are trained to be patient and give help when needed, but that doesn't mean they can't get a good laugh out of it. There is probably never a dull moment being one.
