Woman calls 911 over lack of shrimp in fried rice

Now here is an emergency !

HALTOM CITY, Texas – A woman called 911 to report she didn't get as much shrimp as she wanted in her fried rice at a Texas restaurant.
Haltom City police on Tuesday released the taped emergency call, in which the customer is heard telling the dispatcher, "to get a police officer up here, what has to happen?"
The customer also says: "He didn't even put extra shrimp in there."
The upset customer had left the Fort Worth-area restaurant when an officer arrived Monday afternoon.
Restaurant workers say the woman had been denied a refund after leaving with her order, then returning to complain.
Cook June Lee says nothing was wrong with the meal, and that "some customers are happy. Some are not."

What blows me away is that an officer responded!

Actually, I think it is good that an officer responds, so that they can take these jerks and charge them with frivolous calls to 911, charge them treble costs for the officer's time, etc, etc, etc.

Or help them get their meds adjusted, cause something's wrong and maybe they would be a danger to someone.
