When calling the police or fire department, people pick up the phone and dial 9-1-1. However, some people don’t know the difference between an emergency and being inconvenienced by a situation. On Thursday the latest “Outrageous 911” calls might be over the top hilarious. Watching the show and don’t want to see the spoiler? Look away now! According to TV Guide on Thursday, some people aren’t happy with the way restaurants make burgers and will call the cops to rectify the situation.
While some might find the calls hilarious for the reality show, rational people will be seething hearing that a mom called a fast-food restaurant for making her burger wrong. Dialing 9-1-1 for the wrong reason, there isn’t a crisis except to report the condiments were not quite how she wanted them to be. TLC's "Outrageous 911" comes to the rescue for entertainment on Friday nights.
Looking for more drama on the 9-1-1 help line? Well look no further than a cleric needs help getting out of handcuffs. Why is she wearing handcuffs? Perhaps that is too much information to explain here, but the strange call came into the dispatch and it appears that this moment isn’t life or death (maybe a little embarrassment.)
“Outrageous 911” is a funny look at antics by thoughtless people who use the service for all the wrong way. As this is a distress signal that should be used for emergencies, we would be remiss if we didn’t remind everyone not to do these stupid pranks to the dispatch. It’s against the law and you could be arrested.
