Man Calls 911 for Cheeseburger & Gets Way More Than He Ordered

cheeseburger"Hello 911, I can haz cheezburger?!?" An Indiana man was arrested after calling 911 repeatedly to order a cheeseburger. Fifty-two-year-old Gregory Jackson, Sr. called dispatchers nine times in one night! At first the dispatcher hung up on him -- but Jackson called right back to complain that he'd been disconnected. "Well, I asked if you had an emergency," the dispatcher told Jackson. "You said no, you needed a cheeseburger. So we don't take cheeseburger orders."

Oh man, I know we all get hungry sometimes, but ain't nobody needs an emergency cheeseburger. Gregory clearly does not understand how the world works. There is no such thing as CBR -- Cheese Burger Resuscitation. But here's the saddest part: Gregory is not even remotely the first person to pester 911 about food! Oh my Lord, people do this all the freakin' time. Here are five other foods so powerfully delicious people had to call 911 over them.

  • Wrong Sandwich Order

    1

    Rother McLennon called 911 to report a wrong sandwich order. Rother ordered 14 sandwiches at a deli (lots of cheese and mayo but just a little turkey and ham). But he was displeased with the sandwiches he got and called 911 to report the incident -- from the deli.

  • Chicken McNuggets Emergency

    2

    Latreasa Goodman called 911 to complain after she ordered McNuggets and was told the restaurant was sold out. But she had already paid for them! Where were the McNuggets? Where were they? Find them, they're missing! Help!

  • Children of the Corn

    A family called 911 when they couldn't find their way out of a corn maze. They were 25 feet away from the street when police found them. You know, I think yelling from the maze probably would have helped them faster.

  • When Life Does Not Hand You Lemonade

    4

    A Burger King drive-through customer complained when he couldn't get lemonade with his combo meal. The restaurant offered him a Coke instead, since they were out of lemonade. Jeebus, people, if he wanted Coke, don't you think he would have ordered it?!? Lemonade and Coke are so not even close! At least offer the guy a Sprite.

  • Case of the Missing Coffee & Donuts

    A man called the police to report that someone had broken into his car and stolen... HIS COFFEE AND DONUTS! What a trage-- You know what? I was going to be snarky about this, but nope. It's donuts we're talking about here, so yeah. Freak the hell out, man.

  • About that cheeseburger

    6

    In case you were wondering if Gregory ever got that cheeseburger order filled -- nope. He did not. Instead he got a peanut butter and jelly sandwich served with a smile in his jail cell. And that is way too much trouble to go through for dinner, if you ask me.
