Reasons not to call 911

Being married to a cop I get the inside scoop on DUMB 911 calls. Apparently grown adults think that police officers are babysitters. They're not. These dumb calls inspired this post and I'm thinking it could become at the very least a monthly post, but maybe even a weekly. Without further adieu I present to you this edition of:

REASONS NOT TO CALL

~ There's a little skunk on the side of the road and you're afraid it might get hit by a car.

~ You can hear the children in the apartment above you walking, running or jumping. (HELLO! You live in an APARTMENT!! Call your manager or ask for an upstairs apartment. Do not call the cops.)

~ You think your dog was stolen 2 months ago, but didn't think it was important enough to call about 2 months ago.

~ There's a group of black kids, no sign of criminal activity, just hangin' out, just like the white kids. (Please get a freakin' life!)

and my personal fave...

~ Your drunk, common-law husband came in the bedroom where you were sleeping and started yelling "ROCK TIL YOU DIE!!!" while playing air guitar. Ooh. Scary.

YES! This has got to be a regular post. I love it.

Can't decide which is my favorite--leaning towards the skunk, or those black kids hangin' out ; )

One of my personal faves.... the lady who called 911 b/c BK wouldn't make her burger the way she wanted it.

awesome.

remember when I had the fire alarm trouble earlier this year? I solved it by removing all the firealarms in the house and locking them in my car for the night.

A friend of mine had the same problem not too long ago. She called the base "non-emergency" line and just asked for an idea of how to make the alarms stop going off. They wouldn't talk to her over the phone and told her they just had to come over at 2 am and make sure everything was okay.

A few minutes later she hears sirens and sees lights flashing. Two fire trucks and a couple of police cars show up at her house! They tell her she needs to change the batteries!

atleast they weren't singing rock til you die!

aubrey said...

that 911 call from the wife about her husband playing air guitar cracked me up. did she call 911 after he passed out in a drunk stupor or during his air guitar solo?
