A particularly irate individual seemingly had a bone to pick with local law enforcement in Kawagachi, Japan recently.
According to reports, the 67-year-old had started making phone calls to the Saitama Prefectural Police headquarters on September 30th and continued doing so until October 8th.
During these nine days he made a total of 2,060 separate phone calls - the equivalent of one call every six minutes - totaling 27 hours of police time.
During the calls, he would repeatedly attack, berate and insult the officers, sometimes referring to them as "tax thieves" and "big stupid a******s", while also telling them that they should be fired.
When he was finally arrested, an investigation into his activities revealed that he had actually been making calls to the police for years and had only recently ramped up his efforts.
"I knew the police would come for me someday," he was quoted as saying.
It remains unclear exactly what his beef with the police actually was.
