Hunger could make one feel like feeding one’s self is an emergency situation, but perhaps it isn’t life-threatening enough to call the police.

But a 32-year-old woman from Ontario placed a call on Monday, leading the police to rush to a restaurant. They found the woman and her 10-year-old son, with the former enraged that there was a delay in the preparation of the pizza they had ordered, The Star reports.


Constable Sandra Barr said the woman was informed on the proper use of the 911 number, which is for situations that involve a crime or when one is in imminent danger.

In 2017, Canada’s Emergency Communications Centre (E-Comm) found that one in five calls made in British Columbia was not an emergency. The “worst” 911 calls, published in The Columbia Valley Pioneer, include the following: a nail salon refusing to change a nail polish color, a restaurant declining to refund inedible food, a tenant who has moved out without returning the keys, and asking if raccoons are dangerous.  Niña V.
