OK. Here's another dumb 911 call. A stupid woman called 911 because her takeout order didn't have enough shrimp. What an idiot. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090408/ap_on_fe_st/odd_skimp_on_shrimp_5

Unless they have some sort of mental illness causing this completely ridiculous behavior or they are younger than 6 years old, then I think they should be majorly fined because 911 is not something someone should be joking around with

Some towns are fining people for abusing the system. They need to start that system in all towns.

I so agree with that, Spice. And CatLady, I wanted to see the article, but it says the site is expired. Must have been a mental disorder though. ?

People abuse the 911 system when they feel slighted and don't get what they want. They need to get a life and grow up. So her friend hung up on her. Big deal. If that's the worst thing in her life, she should consider herself lucky.

911 is for emergencies and these idiots could very well cost someone their life with their stupid calls. Someone having gone into cardiac arrest has from 4 to 6 minutes to get attention before they suffer brain damage from lack of oxygen. In our county there is one person at night to answer 911 calls - if they were held up by someone such as this woman complaining about shrimp then a person desperately needing attention could be lost. They should pass something where people making stupid calls such as this to 911 can be fined no less than $100 per call. That might make them think.

If they start charging for using 911 for non emergencies people will stop and think before they call over stupid things.

That woman is one of the reason people who really need help didn't get one. She should be ashamed of herself.

She seems to be the type that feels overly entitled.

What's your problem? How would I know more than was in the article? Do you really expect people to know everything, even things not in the news articles?

Some people are just too strange. Calling the police emergency number when they don't get what they want.

This is really stupid, in my opinion. I really don't understand why people do this sort of thing. Talk about wasting police officer's time.

They obviously have entitlement issues. The world doesn't give them enough and they get overly upset.

Unfortunately it happens way to often. Abusing the system can tie up the lines and prevent real emergencies from getting through.

I saw that yesterday. No wonder people with real emergencies can't get through.
