Yes, it's time for more silly 999 calls!! For my American reader that's stupid 911 calls.
From a recent release from the Greater Manchester Police:
· A priest rang 999 because he was in WH Smiths at Manchester airport and the staff wouldn't let him use their toilet
· A man rang 999 and said that he had asked the shop assistant at the pizza shop not to put mushrooms on his pizza and he had put mushrooms on it
· A woman called 999 to say that she was unable to get through to Strictly Come Dancing to vote for Tom Chambers in the final
· A man rang 999 to ask what his mobile number was because he knew it would appear on the call handler’s computer screen
Linda Lusardi, a former Emmerdale actress, proves these calls aren't just from the medically authenticated mentally challenged but that they are also caused by plain STUPID people. She phoned 999 because she was late for her panto!! What sort of an idiot thinks being late for a panto qualifies as an emergency or as a reason to request use of the hard shoulder???
Remember, we must be ever vigilant for these sorts of folks otherwise your grandchildren might end up sharing a few stupid genes with them. Point them out now and make sure only the equally idiotic would ever mate with these wastes of space.
