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.

1. Starting to think she wasn't really a nurse.

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.
