Bi Montlhy Silly 999 Calls Story

I do so love the regular stories on stupid calls made to the 999 emergency number. Personally I think the operators should take down the names and addresses and then when these stories get publish, publish those details too so we can all have a good laugh mocking the stupidity of these idiots.

Let us see a few examples.

First up... an "amusing" lady informs the 999 operator that there's a squirrel WITHOUT A HAZELNUT TREE!!!

Then a hungry man in the West Country:

The truth is out there (click the link to hear it)

The Control Room conversation, which took place in May, was recorded - and below is a transcript:

Control Room: "South Wales Police, what's your emergency?"

Caller: "It's not really. I just need to inform you that across the mountain there's a bright stationary object."

Control room: "Right."

Caller: "If you've got a couple of minutes perhaps you could find out what it is? It's been there at least half an hour and it's still there."

Control: "It's been there for half an hour. Right. Is it actually on the mountain or in the sky?"

Caller: "It's in the air."

Control: "I will send someone up there now to check it out."

Caller: "OK."

The mystery was soon solved, as the exchange between control and an officer at the scene, makes clear.

Control: "Alpha Zulu 20, this object in the sky, did anyone have a look at it?"

Officer: "Yes, it's the moon. Over."

Thank stupid people of Britain, you remind me that I am not the dumbest person around.
