|Seriously? That's your emergency?|

A 39-year-old Pennsylvania man recently phoned the Upper Macungie Township police to report a horrible robbery. Someone stole his Jell-O from the break room refrigerator at work. According to the Smoking Gun website, the caller "continued that this was not the first time his food had been stolen from the refrigerator," says the police report.
According to the report, the "incident remains under investigation."
Hopefully there’s a crack squad of detectives working this thing in shifts.
These kinds of calls are funny but not at all uncommon.
If you read APB, you know that last March, a Florida mother called 911 and asked if officers could "come out and scare the sh-t out of my kids."
But the parenting by 911 strategy didn’t work out for the Mom.
When police arrived she promptly assaulted one of them.
Turns out it was the mother not the kids that needed a refresher course on respecting authority.
So the cops charged her with assault and took her to jail.
Last February, an Indiana man allegedly dialed 911 nine times to order a cheeseburger.
What do you call it when someone does the same thing over and over and expects a different result again?
