It never fails to amaze me what some people consider an emergency. For me 999 is there to report a serious crime or an accident that requires urgent medical attention. It seems, however, that some people don’t understand this. According to this article some of the reasons people have called the number include to report out of date milk on a shelf and to report that a new bed had not been delivered. Recently I remember there was also a lady who called to report a stolen snowman. When you think how many calls the emergency services deal with especially over the busy Christmas period it does me make me wonder what these time wasters are thinking.
