Okay, it's not exactly as the thread title suggests but this call to the police 999 life-or-death emergency number to report a short-changing of sprinkles on her ice-cream is mind-boggling.

Why would a person even think to dial 999 in this situation? :blink:

Did they position snipers on the roof tops and send in a SWAT team?...

I would have fully expected this if it would have happened in the United States.

Wonder how old this person was. Often times these old bitties have nothing else to concern themselves with so they blubber about stupid garbage.

Feel sorry for whoever had to deal with that though, must've been like an instant migraine.
