Remember the last you were so hungry that it almost made you act like a child throwing off a temper tantrum? Well, a similar thing happened last week in Ontario. The incident involved a very upset and very hungry Ontario woman and an oblivious pizza shop employee.
Ontario Woman Says that Delay Is Inexcusable
There’s never a dull moment for the police, especially when you have to explain that the emergency number is to be used only in case of an emergency. On this topic, we bring you the story of Sandra Barr, a police constable working at the Provincial Police Department.
Ms. Barr declared that on Monday, at around 10 p.m., the police department received a phone call from a woman who wanted to complain about the way she’s been treated by a pizza shop’s staff member.
The authorities naturally assumed that the caller’s claims were legit and dispatched Constable Sandra Barr to the location.
According to the police officer, when she arrived at the eastern Ontario pizza shop, she found the woman yelling at one of the servers. Next, she approached the visibly upset Ontario woman and asked her about the nature of her emergency.
Apparently, the 32-year-old told Constable Barr that the pizza shop’s staff failed to honor her order in the specified amount of time. Basically, the woman called the authorities because she and her son had to wait a little longer for their pizza.
The police constable issued a warning and instructed the woman on how to use the emergency line. According to Barr, the woman was convinced of doing the right thing calling the police, especially because her 10-year-old was hungry.
Constable Barr seizes the opportunity to tell the public that the emergency line should only be used to report a crime in progress or if someone is in immediate danger. Moreover, Barr ended her statement by saying that 911 is not to be used for pizza calls.
