Woman Calls 911 over Fried Rice

Associated Press: A woman called 911 to report she didn't get as much shrimp as she wanted in her fried rice at a Texas restaurant.

Haltom City police on Tuesday released the taped emergency call, in which the customer is heard telling the dispatcher, "to get a police officer up here, what has to happen?"

The customer also says: "He didn't even put extra shrimp in there."

The upset customer had left the Fort Worth-area restaurant when an officer arrived Monday afternoon.

Restaurant workers say the woman had been denied a refund after leaving with her order, then returning to complain.

Cook June Lee says nothing was wrong with the meal, and that "some customers are happy. Some are not."

This woman should be fined for calling 911 when not necessary.

Oh my goodness! I know it is a horrible way to treat the police and 911 but I cannot stop laughing over how ridiculous people can be.

Calling 911 is unacceptable,
Someone needs to remind people how to complain to Store Management.
I can’t believe Service in the USA has gotten so bad… What happened to the old adage: “The Customer is Always Right”?

Also, don’t dispatchers make an assessment on whether the call is a hoax? Can’t the police officers make a judgment call not to respond? Why waste the taxpayers’ money on a non-emergency when no law is broken?

She probably got the idea from the Florida woman who called 911 when McDonalds ran out of chicken nuggets.

I certainly hope this woman is charged with public mischief for such a trivial and obviously non-emergency call.

She must have taken lessons from that dude who called the cops over his Subway order.
