10 Dumbest Reasons People Have Called 999

Paramount Pictures

A drunken Manchester United fan dialled 999 at the end of last month, ‘demanding’ to speak to Sir Alex Ferguson, after the team lost 2-1 to Sunderland in the Capital One Cup, telling the operator: “The result is all wrong, they had extra time and it was a total and utter load of rubbish.”

When asked if he needed to report a crime, the drunkard ranted: “Yes, a crime. I want to report a crime. The crime is that Manchester United were absolutely knackered.”

Dude, that is one Hell of an emergency. You know what else is an emergency? Losing your slippers, McDonalds running out of Chicken McNuggets, and receiving a shoddy manicure. What if your wife won’t make you dinner? Surely that is a matter of life or death. 

If you were to have a power cut; how are you supposed to know how long it will »
