12 Of The Dumbest Reasons People Have Called 911
Most people who call the police or 911 usually are calling because they are in an emergency situation. Most people, not all people. Some people think that 911 is the perfect number to call to take care of every minor issue in their lives.
I was joking the other day with my wife about calling the police because one of our neighbors had put up a huge blow-up snowman in the middle of September. Which to me is a crime against my eyes. Obviously, I didn't call because I know that calling the police or 911 is for emergencies only. Plus the snowman does look pretty cool at night when half the neighborhood is lit up by it. It is like the start of a weird scary movie. "When Frosty Turns Evil".
But not everyone has gotten the memo that 911 is for emergencies only. There are a variety of reasons why you would want to call the police or 911. Someone parking too close to you in a parking lot is not one of them. Or the fact that your sister wouldn't share her popcorn with you while at the movies. Both of those were real calls to 911.
On Reddit, someone asked 911 operators what were some of the weirdest reasons people have called 911. After reading some of these stories, you will have to agree that 911 operators need a pay raise.
Plus remember that calling 911 is for emergencies only. Abusing 911 and calling multiple times for non-emergency reasons could actually land you in jail!
