Stupid 911 Calls

Wondering: are stupid 911 calls truly on the rise, or are they just showing up in the news more?

For instance, a guy called 911 to say hello. One guy called 911 to ask for a ride to a liquor store. A woman thought 911 was a dating service. And if you think the Blue Angels are loud when they’re buzzing by for an air show, don’t call 911 and complain about it.

(Oh and, did you know that you should call 911 instead of using Twitter or Facebook in an emergency?)

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
