I think we’ve all heard the stories and had a laugh. You know…the customer who dials up 911 after they receive only 9 nuggets instead of the 10 they paid for. Or…the parent who calls up the police when their child refuses to do chores. I know my mother threatened me with that call back in the day…
But who knew about the massive misuse of the ‘911’ service that goes on right here in Edmonton! The Edmonton Police Service tweeted today reminding people to “Make the Right Call” and shared some of the inappropriate calls they’ve received….like this one, “Are you sitting down?”
Or….this lady who need some help getting into her new home!
Or this fellow who thought it was an emergency…you know, that someone turned without using their signal light.
And lastly, this hopeless romantic who thought that ‘911’ was the appropriate place to leave a nice message for his wife.
