The 911 dispatchers have been having problems with various people from time immemorial, because many people believe that anything is a 911 emergency case. However, one particular call baffled the tired emergency hotline dispatchers at the end of January 2014.
According to official reports, an unnamed woman from Florida was having breakfast at a Village Inn in Tampa when she allegedly got served raw waffles. The woman told the waited she didn’t want to take the uncooked waffles and then called 911. She complained about her waffle case and claimed she wasn’t going to eat the uncooked breakfast and that she wanted the waffles taken off her bill, since she had already paid for them. Of course, the hungry woman could have been insanely fastidious or just drunk, but she thought her case was an extreme emergency.
According to Tampa’s PD office, around 50% of the 911 calls are similar to this woman’s one – meaningless and without a doubt – not an emergency at all.
