Woman dials 999 to report snowman theft in KentA woman who dialled 999 to report the theft of a snowman from outside her home has been branded "completely irresponsible" by Kent Police.The force said the woman, from Chatham, thought the incident required their involvement because she used pound coins for eyes and teaspoons for arms.During the call the woman said: "It ain't a nice road but you don't expect someone to nick your snowman."Kent Police said officers had given her advice on real 999 emergencies.The force said the call was made at the same time as operators fielded thousands of other phone calls about the heavy snowfall and sub-zero temperatures in the county.During the conversation she said: "There's been a theft from outside my house."I haven't been out to check on him for five hours but I went outside for a **** and he's gone."When she was asked who had gone, the woman replied: "My snowman. I thought that with it being icy and there not being anybody about, he'd be safe."She was then asked whether it was an ornament, and answered: "No, a snowman made of snow, I made him myself."It ain't a nice road but at the end of the day, you don't expect someone to nick your snowman, you know what I mean?"The operator then told her she had rung an emergency line and she should not be calling it to report the theft of a snowman.Ch Insp Simon Black said: "This call could have cost someone's life if there was a genuine emergency and they couldn't get through."It was completely irresponsible."We have spoken to her and advised her what is a 999 call, and this clearly was not."Be sure to play the call! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-11908583
Florida Woman Calls 911 After McDonald's Runs Out of McNuggetsA Florida woman called 911 three times after she paid for a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets at a McDonald's but the fast-food restaurant ran out of them and refused to give her a refund.Latreasa L. Goodman, 27, made the calls after she tried to get her money back from a Fort Pierce McDonald's and the cashier told her all sales were final. Police released the 911 tapes."This is an emergency. If I would have known they didn't have McNuggets, I wouldn't have given my money, and now she wants to give me a McDouble, but I don't want one," police quoted her as saying. "This is an emergency."The cashier suggested she choose something else off the menu of equal value to the McNuggets, and offered the restaurant's cheeseburger called the McDouble."She's trying to force me to eat something off the menu and I don't want it," Goodman told 911.The first dispatcher, a woman, asks if there's a manager there, but listens to Goodman's complaints and says she's sending someone.The second, male dispatcher tells her he's aware of the incident and "we've got an officer coming out there to talk to you."Police say Goodman was cited on a misuse of 911 charge. A current phone listing for Goodman couldn't be found.A McDonald's spokesman said Goodman should have been given a refund, and she's being sent a gift card for a free meal.First callhttp://www.tcpalm.com/videos/detail/first-call/Second callhttp://www.tcpalm.com/videos/detail/second-call/Third callhttp://www.tcpalm.com/videos/detail/wheres-my-nuggets-again/ http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,504125,00.html
