Blog From The Bog, Running out of toilet roll?

Molly The Wally Deep In Thought!

Police reveal some of the ridiculous calls people make to emergency number in 2012.

Now Blogville has a new police station thanks to our Chief of Pawlice Sarge we thought we’d take a look some of the frivolous 999 calls made to a police force in 2012. Unnecessary calls included reporting a leak in a bathroom and someone wanting a lift home on Christmas Day.  Greater Manchester Police also reported a call regarding a marmalade theft and a plea to reveal a TV soap program plotline. One entry on the police log noted that they had received a 999 call from a male saying he has run out of toilet roll. On Christmas Day, police received a call from man outside Exeter police station asking for a lift back to Crediton. He told the operator he had spent all his money and could not get back home. Another example was of a woman who had been trying to contact her local Chinese takeaway. She called the emergency number to ask if they knew if the takeaway had closed down or moved. Another member of the public called the emergency services to say that her electricity had gone out and could they help sort it out. She would not believe that the police did not deal with electrical matters. A man rang to ask for the phone number of a plumber as he had come home to find he had a leak in the bathroom. Then there was the angry dad who called the emergency services to report his teenage son for refusing to go to bed. The schoolboy, was playing on his games console at midnight and would not switch it off and get some sleep. Others included a man who contacted emergency services asking how to send a fax , a job seeker who wanted police to type up a CV for him and a man who rang at 4.30am to check the score in a recent Middlesbrough FC football game. The best one was a call asking for a paramedic to take a dogs’ temperature. Beats going to the dogtor if you ask me. Have a good day and Hey, let's be careful out there!

Now Sarge has organized the Blogville Sled Day. Just leave a comment on their blog to say you’d like to join in and send an email to lfurman1987ATyahooDOTCOM and include your picture, name, blog addy, and requested sled style. It is goona be Epic! I have requested anything that goes on mud! Huh wonder why? Sarge again is Here!

  1. Hi Molly, stupid people and some seemed be lazy too. But funny to read such things. Every time I open your Blog - you made my day.....with laughter and so you get one big smile from me - Aiko - the "Monsterbacke" - that´s the name my humans call me ..... ;-) Why??????
    Wuff an LG - have a funny weekend.

  2. Hoomans are SO stoopid!! and clearly have too much time on their paws!
    Wally & Sammy

  3. These people should be issued fines for misusing the number!

  4. I agree with Wally and Sammy Miz M.......peeps are creepy at times!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh dear, you make me laugh so hard...I have to remember to NOT be drinking while I read your posts or else my screen gets a spray of tea! LOVE YA!

  5. Here's one....A woman called 911 because her cats ate her Burger King Whopper and she wanted another one!

  6. Whaaaat? Good grief! Crazy callers!....but SO FUNNY!

  7. We think people aren't very bright and yet they don't respect our knowledge! Sigh. Have a great day!

  8. First I was afraid you would have the cheesecake problem ;o) But honestly for the TP roll I would call the police too ;o)

  9. Really? They called because they ran outta toilet paper? What is this world coming to.

    You've got some good humor over there Molly.

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  11. Hey Molly!
    Wow, those nutty peeps are driving the police crazy! Oh, but those are totally hysterical. My Dad and I are shaking our heads and laughing. Love the poor peep caught short on the toilet. Hey, we never use paper! BOL Thanks for reminding everyone about sled day too. You're a great furiend!
    BTW: The funniest call we've had at the Blogville Police Station was one from a cat who called because her peep was stuck in a tree! Oh BWAR HAR HAR!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  12. Those humans, always stirring up trouble!

  13. Very funny. But really the "superior" creatures. I think not.

  14. Hey Molly! I am not sure what to laugh harder about... The fact that you're sitting on top of the toilet bowl or your post about the calls. The best one was about the CV... although the dad story was also hilarious.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  15. Hello Molly,
    my mum told me, she had thought sometimes too call the police too, when her children don't want to go to bed, but she never did it! Sometimes parents are really very stressed!
    Anyway I happy to see that you have plenty of strange people too over there, because mum and I believed they were all around in our park...
    Nice regards

  16. Clean Run ships that Kong SafeStix toy for free...World-wide! If you can't find it in the UK, buy it and take advantage of the free shipping ;-)

  17. cute nose. boy, humans can be dumb, huh? :)

  18. Shame on them folks calling 999
    Murphy sent his photo in, shame on me, we go back along way as he is on my follow list!! Problem is the more fur friends you follow over the years you just can't keep up with all of them, sad but true, but it was great catching up with Murphy, so thanks.
    Right, Sarge is another friend I've not visited in a long time :(
    Have a Good Week
    See Yea George xxx

  19. Oh dear, natural selection doesn't seem to be working on humans any more does it?
    Toodle pip!

  20. Running out of toilet paper is an emergency, alright! Send help!

    Susan and Wrigs

  21. It is amazing how dumb people can be! One time mom was monitoring calls in a 9-1-1 center (our version of 999) and this guy called in and wanted the police to come to his house and arrest his adult children. Seems he thought they were old enough to move out of the house but he didn't have the heart to tell them so he thought the police could just come and haul them away. Yes, the man had a few drinks before calling.
    Keep Calm & Bark On!

    Murphy & Stanley

    Pee Ess - For anyone who saw the deicer recipe, make sure you use HOT water!

  22. ...type up a CV? Dood, your police are MUCH nicer than ours! MOL!!

  23. OH Peeps aren't the Only ones... One day ..back when I was Mayor of Blogville... I was helpin on the emergency line... and somebuddy called in wanting SARGE to come help them GET a Cat UP their tree. and another one was having a Pawty and wanted him to BRING them some Squirrels to chase.
    Butt we just don't understand HOW peeps could think that not having any Paper is a problem... THAT is what Carpet and Grass are fur. RIGHT?

  24. Those were hilarious, whenever there is stuff like that in the newspaper, Dad always reads it out in this outraged voice, ha!
    Dip Bridge and Elliot x

  25. We can't believe the stupidity of some people. Miskai's nose looks great. Wez want our fortune told.. BOL Have a wonderful evening and chillax, we are so behind today :) xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  26. Molly MOM hates it when someone uses the last of the TP and doesn't replace it BUT I don't have the prob-lemo!!
    You have a lovely nosey and I want to kiss it
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  27. In NYC, there is a special line for calls like those. You call 311 and not 911 to voice your gripes and such. I always have to laugh at how you call things difference than we do. Chinese takeway? HAH! We call it takeout.

  28. Crazy... then when you need the service, they're busy.

    XXXOOO Daisy, bella & Roxy

  29. So much good stuff here today Molly...Here's my favorite local 911 call from last year...This guy lives about 210 miles from us (hope that's far enuff)

    I loved Misaki's nose and laughed that Sheila called her a him...she's such a pretty girl

    Momz already sent in my picture to Sarge...I'll be riding 2-man with my pal Oz...Two Florida terriers sledding for the first time ought to be really funny

    Have a great weekend!

  30. What about the woman who called 999 from the Exeter area to ask for an ambulance to help someone in Surrey tonight ? THEY WERE QUICK...

    yeah, nutter's some people. Not us Molly cos we would never been seen dead sitting on the toilet would we ?... ah, baby... you have to be a bit stronger.. at least we know you never had to pull the chain.. We have a new bog seat by the way :-) Ah, not half so nice as yours cos your not sittin on ours :-) :-) x x x

  31. Funny stories Molly - I work for an emergency car breakdown/household disaster call centre - we once had a call from a man who thought he needed breakdown emergency because his car cigarette lighter wouldn't work. tee hee Betty x

  32. Hehehe, people do the silliest things!

  33. We are LOLing over that picture!

  34. Some people are so dumb!
    Loving my nose pic, thanks for posting it:-)

  35. Hey Molly,
    Not even one called for a treat! Jeesh! What's that about?
    Wuff wuff, Henry

  36. And they think that humans are OUR masters and mistresses... if we were not here they would be even more silly than that.

    Shelle, Milo, Dixie and Newby,

  37. Silly calls people make to the police! The police get those here too, sadly.

  38. I can't believe people phone the police for such stupid things.
