RIP Society: Woman Calls Emergency Services Over Ice Cream Sprinkles

Sprinkles Are Not A Crisis

A woman in West Midlands, England, called 999 (Britain’s emergency call service) because of ice cream sprinkles. In the middle of an argument with the guy who’d just sold her an ice cream cone, she called police in a huff and detailed how he refused to put sprinkles on both sides. Um. Desserts are an emergency, okay? She insisted to the operator that ”it doesn’t seem like much of an emergency but it is a little bit.” After all, the ice cream man had “put bits on one side and none on the other.” Okay, so this is kind of hilarious (especially the recording), but wasting minutes of emergency responders’ time leaves people with real, non-dessert-related emergencies waiting longer for assistance. That said, I totally can’t help but laugh about this one. [Telegraph UK]
