Don’t Mess Around With 911

, , , , , , , | Legal | April 3, 2022

I am a 911 call taker. If you don’t know, telemarketers randomly generate phone numbers, and they often accidentally call our emergency line.

Me: “911, what’s your emergency?”

Robot: “Hello, your car’s extended warranty is almost expired. Press one to talk to a representative.”

Me: “Oh, my God, guys, it’s gonna happen! I’m gonna talk to a real person!”

Coworker: “I’m excited for you. Go ahead!”

I press one.

Telemarketer: “Hello you’ve reach—”

Me: “911, what’s your emergency?”

Telemarketer: “Oh. there’s no emergency.”

Me: “Ma’am, you called 911. What’s the emergency?”

Telemarketer: “We don’t make calls, ma’am.”

Me: “This is abuse of emergency lines. We can track your location and send you a fine for this.”

The telemarketer hangs up.

Coworker: “Did you actually track the call?”

Me: “No, but she doesn’t know that.”
