    At least it was a genuine emergency

    I don't think you can beat this one:

    How about a elected offical:

    Lather, rinse, repeat.

    I can't wait to see Keith Olbermann's year-end compilation of "Oddball". Between those two handcuffed crooks who ran around opposite sides of a lamppost and this guy, it oughta be a doozy.

    To be honest, I have a lot of sympathy for this one. She was alone with two kids, 10pm at night, and

    What would you do if your mum called you up in the middle of the night with the same issue and she had two kids staying with her? I'd tell her to get the fire brigade over. Without being able to look at it, and not knowing what it was, it could potentially be a very serious situation.

    The fire brigade fully supported her:
    Really, the only reason this is in the news is that a clueless MP from the opposing party abused his position as a chair of a fire authority to make sexist comments about her. (and directly contradicted the advice of the fire experts that he's supposed to be supporting.)

    i dunno about this one, but boilers can represent a danger and cause serious damage if they explode.
    it kinds of depend on how serious the situation was, but in such cases it is wise to let professionals deal with it.

    Riiiiiiight.

    :rolleyes:

    A lemonade shortage is definitely a total emergency. I mean, there's absolutely no way that he could have gone to another Burger King or even picked up a jug at his local grocery store!!! Oh, the horror!

    I've got to say though, that I don't think the boiler call was out of line. If it was indeed shaking and making loud noises, I think it's common sense to call for urgent help. Can't boilers explode if something goes wrong? I'm not a boiler expert, but it seems that if something got messed up with valves and pressure and so on, that something nasty could happen as a result. :confused:

    "It's the Moon, over." FTW. :D

    I went to a Jack in the Box drive-through today and ordered an Oreo shake. They said OK on the speaker, but when I got to the pickup window they told me the milkshake machine wasn't working. They didn't know that 1 minute earlier!!!?

    So what did I do? I took out my iPhone and dialed 9...1.... ok, not really. I asked if they had smoothies and they did, so I got that instead. Problem solved, without any police involvement at all. It's important to leave those emergency lines clear in case Burger King is out of lemonade again and the victims need to call for help!
