This child called 911 twice to say he hates salad
Sometimes, we just have to complain about vegetables. A 12-year-old in Halifax, Nova Scotia called the police two times to report how terrible a salad his parents made was.
According to reports from CBC News, the boy called the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to make a formal complaint about his nutritious meal. Though his parents were not arrested for serving him veggies, the boy did meet with police officers to discuss the gravity of his calls.
“While many can relate to the dislike of a salad at times, this raises a more important issue that warrants discussion at all ages,” Caplain Dal Hutchinson said in a statement. “The improper use of 911 is an issue with all age groups and it ties up valuable resources, preventing emergency first responders from dealing with real emergencies.”
Usually, the fine for a reporting a false emergency is a steep $697.50. However, in this case, the boy just got a firm talking to—and potentially a larger portion of veggies.
