When it comes to funny 911 calls, nobody knows the ins and outs quite like a 911 dispatcher, obviously. These folks have to be on high alert at all times to ensure the public's safety. That said, sometimes the public makes it real difficult to want to protect them. Not everyone who calls 911 is in danger. Hell, not everyone who calls 911 is coherent enough to notice that they're even freakin' calling 911.
Do you see where were going with this? Sometimes it's not about saving lives, sometimes it's about managing to get through the call without laughing your ass off. That's why, when we came across this reddit thread posed by user, Beardedrugbymonster, we just had to share it with y'all, "911 dispatchers of reddit, what are some of the dumbest calls you've gotten?"
If nothing else, please use this as a learning lesson on what not to do. 911 dispatchers are important, guys. They aren't meant to keep you company while you nurse a paper cut or a hangover, for that matter. Imagine someone calling you up at your job asking how to sell a baby? Oh forget it, we'll just let the dispatchers explain.
