Woman Calls 911 Over Wrong Pizza Order

Woman Calls 911 Over Wrong Pizza Order

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.

Fox61 reported:

“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.

I’m just happy whenever I see one of these and it turns out to be somewhere other than Florida.

That pie looks pretty good. Do they deliver to Texas?

The 9-1-1 operator should have sent la migra to meet the caller at the pizza joint.

Obviously natural selection is a fallacy.

In 18 years on the street, I’ve had people call be for her power going out for a few minutes and a mother who’s children not doing their homework, but this is a good one.

I personally know a young wife who called 411 to find out if a recipe that called for 1/2 cup of “whipped cream” meant before it was whipped or after it was whipped.

This wasn’t a delivery to Michelle Fields house was it?

Did the pizza assault her?

I hate to say it, but I kinda agree with that lady. They cheated her and wouldn’t make it right immediately. Low cost fraud, for sure, but if you ordered a Chevy and got a Ford instead wouldn’t you want the dealer arrested when they kept hanging up on you?

    Are you serious? Neither scenario rises to the level of “life threatening,” which is what 911 is supposed to be for ~

    Have you ever heard of professionals called Lawyers?

    Even if you wanted someone arrested, how is it an emergency? Last I heard calling 911 when it’s not an emergency was an offense, and you could get arrested for it. Why wasn’t this woman arrested?

    “Fraud” is promising to do something with no intention of doing it at the time the promise was made. There’s no evidence, so far, here of anything other than a mistake. That could be a breach of contract, depending on the circumstances, but without proof of intent at that point in time it’s not fraud.

Sounds like something an “Ashley” would do – whine about some triviality and then expect gub’mint to fix it, instead of dealing with it like an adult ~

This is almost as ridiculous as Michelle Fields claiming she was beat up.

Hamburger as a pizza topping? Don’t want to play the class card, but somehow I don’t think she was washing it down with beaujolais nouveau.

Anyway, it’s a good headline but not exactly an accurate one since she was most likely looking for some kind of legal / law enforcement dispute resolution and not knowing at all how to do it.

    Of course not. She well knows that beaujolais nouveau isn’t released until the third Thursday in November. That pizza does look pretty good, though.

I don’t have anything to say about the ignorant entitled boob who wasted the dispatchers time. But I do want to say that the pizza in that picture, looks darned good.

When munchies hit, and your pimp is pissed, wrong pizza toppings could be an emergency. Do what you gotta dom

I have to disagree with people who think that pizza looks good. It looks like some fast food pizza crap to me? Dominos maybe or worse.

It’s a stock photo, people. It’s not the pizza she ordered.

She seems rather docile for having her pizza order messed up. Wonder what would happen if we amped it up to Chicken McNuggets?

Once the gubmint rules every aspect of our lives, the police will intervene in a $10 dispute.

Lady calls 911 on Burger King.
“Maam we’re not going to go down there and enforce your western bacon cheese burger.?
