The Savannah, Georgia, police department had to remind citizens this week that 911 is for emergencies only and that misuse of the system is a misdemeanor offense after a woman called them to complain that a Chinese restaurant had given her the wrong food. So, apparently, the Savannah, Georgia, has a different definition of “emergencies” than the rest of us. SOMEONE HELP THIS POOR VICTIM!
The audio is a little garbled. Full transcript after the jump:
911 Operator: 911, what is your emergency?
Woman: Yeah, I need an officer to 11710 E Largo Drive to Hong Kong Restaurant Chinese Restaurant To Go. I order food and they gonna give me the wrong food. I bring this up site they gonna give me money they gonna half give me my money uh-unh, I need food.
