"Yorn desh born, der ritt de gitt der gue, Orn desh, dee born desh, de umn børk! børk! børk!"

"VOT DE HEY?!"

Back when I was a Swedish Chef on Sesame Street I nearly got jacked by a bunch of Lobsters.
I got plenty of complaints too, most unfounded, but no one ever went this far:

Police in Jacksonville, Fla., say they had to arrest a man who twice called 911 after he said a sandwich shop left the sauce off his order. One call was for police to get the shop to make his sandwich correctly.
The second was because he didn't think police were responding quickly enough.
Police aren't amused, but...
I am.

While I would so love to watch the Swedish Chef on Sesame Street, I can't because I'm getting an error message. More headaches with the computer.

While it's good that we all now have 911 and know to call that in an emergency, I'm afraid I don't have a clue what the regular police number is to call in an non-emergency. But you would think that if not common sense at least fear of embarrassment would stop a person from calling 911 over a sandwich, let alone calling 911 twice over the same sandwich.

When I was at U-Haul, I had a customer call 911 because they had a reservation for a truck and I didn't have a truck available just then. I actually did have a truck available if they had approached the alter with reverence. As it was, they came looking for a problem and they got one. That's how we did things!

Can you enlighten me on the title of this post?

The police probably didn't respond because they were out shooting some dogs...

My Big Fecker called the police when he was about seven. He was complaining that his brother was being a twat. He couldn't understand why the nice policemen who turned up three hours later(!) were very cross. They threatened to arrest him if he did it again, so he did.

Dave and Minx I had no idea 911 was such a universally helpful number.
laughing-yeah, twice! What they need is a number to call if 911 isn't responding in a timely fashion...like to the Insane Asylum or something.

Barbara- what with you being Norwegian I was hoping you could tell me! Thats what the Swedish Chef on Sesame Street Says at the beginning of his segment..that or some variation....

Barbara said...

We Norwegians don't like to admit to understanding Swedish!

That probably does double for Danish!

Ha! That's hilarious. I bet the police couldn't believe they were getting that call.
