Services like 9-1-1 exist so that people can get help in emergencies — but sometimes people use the service for things that are decidedly dumber.
A recent Reddit thread asked 9-1-1 operators to name their stupidest or most annoying call yet. The answers might make us all feel better about the minor inconveniences we've managed to tackle on our own.
I had a nurse (she told me twice she was a nurse before we confirmed the address)... anywho, the nurse tells me she’s babysitting an infant. So I’m starting to get into baby cpr mode... again, tells me she’s a nurse. I ask her what she’s reporting: “Well, like I said, I’m babysitting this infant and cutting his finger nails. I accidentally cut one too short and it’s bleeding” Did you cut a part of the finger off? “No. It’s just bleeding”. At this point, I can give some basic bleeding instructions. But we literally sent an ambulance to help a “nurse” apply a bandage - LeggyBald
