Isn't This Exactly Why We Have 911?

Woman arrested for calling 911 over her Chinese food order

Surely this is why it was created in the first place.

Absolutely! Or not…. As a 911 & Emergency Dispatcher for 10 years, then supervisor/teacher/manger for 24 more, I could regale you for a whole evening with bizarre and funny stories about 911 calls and emergency stuff. It helped us get through the madness and mayhem, to be sure. I have a cassette tape (made years ago), by a fellow supervisor, called "911 Greatest Hits," which is exemplary and full of laughter from crazy 911 calls. I play it once a year (retired now for 8) to remember the little bit of fun we had in an otherwise crazy and stressful job in San Jose, CA. It includes a lengthy exchange with one of our Fire/Medical dispatcher giving CPR instructions to a woman whose "baby" was struggling - only to find out later that "baby" was a cat!
