    Never underestimate human stupidity. A 28-year-old guy called 911 threatening suicide. His method? He swallowed several nitroglycerin pills, prescribed for a heart condition, and repeatedly slammed himself into the wall, trying to make himself explode.:roll

    Yup that was my favorite too.

    An instructor once told us that 9-1-1 originally was 9-11 (nine eleven) They thought that it would be easier to remember as only two numbers (9-11) than as three. The problem was the the less , shall we say innovative, people had difficulty finding the 11 on the telephone. Thus 9-11 was changed to 9-1-1

    I think there may have been a thread about this but I can always do with MORE!!!

    Hilarious!! I also like the one ( Aussie I think) where the guy called the emergency number because he wanted a plumber. He had no hot water and wanted a shower When they explained it was an emergency number he replied very huffy that it was an emergency for HIM!!!
