Have you ever been so hungry, and consequently so angry, that you wanted to call the police on the restaurant for delaying your food order? A woman in Canada actually did. According to local media, a 32-year-old woman in Ontario, dining with her 10-year-old son, called the police to the restaurant over a pizza that wasn't prepared on time. The incident took place on Monday night, and led to the police warning citizens to not use police helplines for trivial matters.
According to the Toronto Star
, police say they were called to a restaurant in Elgin, only to find a "hangry" customer complaining about her delayed dinner.
Ontario Police constable Sandra Barr says the 32-year-old unnamed woman and her son called police because their pizza order had not been prepared on time.
Ms Barr says that police educated the woman on the appropriate use of emergency helplines - something that authorities in UK had to do last year when a woman called them about a cracked egg
"The 911 system is for those that are in imminent danger," she said. "It's for emergency situations in need of police, fire or ambulance. It's not for pizza calls."
The police also took to Twitter to remind citizens that 911 is for emergencies only.
