In case you didn’t think the world was ridiculous enough already
The idiocracy is upon us.
A woman in Hartford, Connecticut called 9-1-1 when she realized the pizza shop messed up her order.
“I just have a question,” the woman identified as Ashley said. “If our pizza and they don’t want to give me my money back, can you guys do something?”
“Ma’am, that’s something you have to take up with them,” the dispatcher said. “But, that’s not something you would dial 9-1-1 for. 9-1-1 is for life threatening emergencies only.”
The dispatcher remains calm and patient through the call.
“Can you call the pizzeria or something?” Ashley asks again.
“Well, what happened?” asks the dispatcher.
“I ordered a small pizza, half cheese and half bacon. They bring me half hamburger. So I called them back and they don’t want to give my money back. They keep hanging up on me.”
“That’s not a police matter ma’am. You’re going to have to work that out with the pizza shop.”
The dispatcher tells the woman she can have an officer meet her at the pizza shop if she would like.
