911.....What's your emergency?

You have to be a special kind of moron to call 911 for a chicken nugget emergency unless the nugget is lodged in your throat and you are in danger of choking to death.

I wouldn't even call the non-emergency police line to handle this dispute. I'm an adult. I'm pretty sure that if I ordered chicken McNuggets and they were out of them, I could choose something else or I could get my money back and run off to Kentucky Fried Chicken for a variety of chicken snacks.

The woman in Florida who called 911 to resolve her McNugget problem should be thrown in jail. I believe she was fined for misusing 911 but I don't think that is enough.
People need to know that 911 is not the number to call for every minor argument. It's there for emergency situations only. "Oh my gosh they're out of my favorite chicken meal," is not an emergency no matter how that crazy broad tried to spin it.

There is no such thing as a chicken emergency unless it's a giant mutant chicken who is crushing people with it's huge mutant feet and you're afraid that it will take over the world. If that's the case, give 911 a jingle. A S.W.A.T. team may be needed.
Bravo to you for helping save the planet.

What do you think is an appropriate punishment for the nugget lady?
