woman calls 911 to complain about wrong chinese food order

Lady, you're a friggin' idiot. In Georgia, a woman apparently called 911 to report that her local Chinese restaurant had delivered the wrong order: Georgia woman calls 911 to report delivery of a wrong order from Chinese food restaurant.

The Savannah-Chatham Metro Police apparently released an audio recording of the call as an example of the type of "emergency" calls people should not be making. On the list of the reasons to call 911, this ranks at #you're-a-dumbass:
"I need the police. It's this Hong Kong restaurant type restaurant to go," the woman said when asked what was the emergency.

"I ordered food and they done bring the wrong food. I done brought it outside and they ain't going to give me my money and I need my money. Uh-uh,
I need to someone to handle this," she said. "They ain't going to do me in any kind of way."

Authorities say making this kind of call can result in help being delayed to those who really need it - and that can be the difference between life and death.
You can actually listen to audio of the call here. I don't know what's worse -- the fact that somebody actually made this call, or the fact that the cops have to go out of its way to tell people not to make calls like this.
