According to the Vancouver Sun, local police were barraged by 911 calls from people trapped in parking lots, streets, and holiday shopping traffic.I don’t really understand what would drive a person to call 911 because of a traffic jam, not to mention multiple people, but then again, I don’t really understand Boxing Day either.
In another part of Canada, cops from Southwestern Ontario released their list of silliest 911 calls of the year, and they include a 20-year old who called the emergency line claiming his father was forcing him to brush his teeth, a report of squirrels who “looked suspicious,” and a man who claimed to have been attacked by a duck.
Of course, I don’t mean to pick on Canada.
At least they never called 911 to complain about the customer service they received from a prostitute in a fast food restroom.
