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.

LOL - You can not fix stupid!  I think it boils down to people not being able to figure out how to get the non emergency phone number..  :)

I was an emergency dispatcher for 11 years...the majority of my adult life as I am only 30. You would not believe some of the absolute nonsense that people classify as an emergency. One woman called 911 from her mostly white, affluent neighborhood to report a black male running down the street in jogging gear. As it turns out, he owned the largest house on the street and owned a multi-million dollar company which owned the company she worked for...oops...her explanation wad that "his kind" didn't live in that area. Really? Jerk. But that doesn't even begin to cover the stupid things I have heard over the years. And the worst I can never "unhear" such as a woman pleading for help as het husband shot het thru the bathroom door with a shotgun. That's a true emergency and unfortunately not everyone can be saved.

They should've arrested him.
