You call 9-1-1 when there’s an emergency.
It’s not hard to understand.
We had to use it a couple of months ago when my stomach felt like it was going to explode (turned out to be the kidney stone, but we didn’t know it at the time). People use it to get an ambulance for heart attacks, or to call the cops for an emergency.
You don’t use it for a sub sandwich.
In Jacksonville, Florida, a man didn’t think the people making the sub was doing a good job. So he called 9-1-1 and wanted police officers to come by and make sure it was made properly. He called a second time to complain the police officers were too slow and taking too long to get there.
Reginald Peterson was charged with making false 9-1-1 calls.
I think he should have been charged with being stupid. Who calls 9-1-1 to complain about something so dumb? And who does it twice? He could have just left the sub store and vowed never to return. Or he could have complained to the manager and probably would have received a free sub, made just the way he likes it.
Instead he made a fool of himself.
