The rules are simple: You post a stupid reason to call 911.

Example: Calling 911 to get a sandwich.

Calling 911 to ask them to mow my lawn.

Call 911 to ask what number you dial to call 911

Boy, having run EMS for many many years, I can truly say that most of these won't even compare to the stupid reasons people actually called 911 for.

One lady called 911, at 430 am so she could get a ride to the hospital for a doctors appointment at 10 am.   She was 8 blocks from the hospital, and in a condition that making that walk was not a problem.   We get there, and she says I don't want to go now, I'll go later.   We told her it was now, or we were leaving.  So she goes.   And then we billed her for the trip (since in district residents get billed for frivolous calls), which in an ALS Squad, ran about $700 then. 

Working near a major university, in August and September, our call volume went through the roof.  Quite often very early Saturday and Sunday mornings, for obvious college reasons.   And since most of these kids weren't residents of the districts, we had to bill them.   The bills went to their parents' address, and the kids had to deal with the wrath of their parents.   There was a noticeable down tick in call volume come mid October when kids realized this.

Calling 911 so I do not have to do the EOG's

I've gone on this call multiple times.  Students faking injury or illness to get out of an exam.   So the professor requires a doctor's note, and somebody ends up calling 911.   See above comment why this usually only happens to freshmen in the first semester.

Yeah, this “game” will end up full of true stories, of the sort I’d hear on the radio. 

Like  people that call 911 because the drive-thru got their order wrong.

That one might be worth calling for, depending on where you are.   Near a rain forest or in the tropics?   Nah.   But if you're in Montana, sure why not?

While not calling 911, my mother in law and her daughter (not my wife) called the local police when the furniture they were carrying furniture out of the basement got stuck in the stairway.

Calling 911 because you saw a broken railway crossing ? Or you were a witness of recent crime (already passed) ?

 

IDK, compared to (say) the UK, emergency numbers in the US seems to be inadequate and too overreaching at the same time. In the UK they have 999 which works for everything immediately endangering; but they also have 101 for non-emergency stuff.

911 on the other hand is the only number easily memorable despite not being the right number to call (ie. level crossing accidents, railway trespass). In the UK 999 works for that too, regardless of where you are; but there's 101 if you don't think it's really that dangerous (or if the harm is already done).

911, what’s your emergency

Operator! I don’t know how to call 911! 

You just called it!

Well, there is a rock on the road.

*exasperated* How big is this rock?

About... the size of my fist

Why is this a problem?!

It’s staring at me in a way that weirds me out. Can you send a bulldozer to move it aw- 

*operator hangs up*

apparently, after a recent tsunami scare here (we only ended up getting a wave a couple of feet high), the local 911 got a rash of people reporting that they heard a tsunami warning on the local news, as well as people calling to ask what they should do.

 

Also, that cat is seriously weirded out by that bread, do I need to call 911?:wink:
