Try Calling Nine-One-Number-Two

, , , , | Right | January 12, 2011

Me: “911, what’s your emergency?”

Caller: “I need help! Hurry, hurry!” *hangs up*

(I try to call back but get no answer. Two officers are sent. This is what I am told happened: The officers are met at the door by the caller.)

Caller: “In the bathroom. Hurry! Hurry!”

(The officers go to the bathroom, but don’t see anything wrong.)

Officer: “What happened? Why do you need the police?”

Caller: “My toilet is plugged up. I need you to fix it.”

Officer: “We don’t fix toilets. You need a plumber. 911 is for emergencies only.”

Caller: “This is an emergency. I need to use the toilet now!”
