Cable Causes Copious Complaints to Cops
The Fairfield, Connecticut police department wants people to know that missing your favorite show isn’t an emergency.
That even applies if you are watching shows like, COPS, SWAT, etc.
Fairfield police say they received numerous 911 calls about a cable outage that hit parts of southwestern Connecticut on Sunday night.
Even the police weren’t able to watch their favorite shows.
The message on the department’s Facebook page says the outage is “neither an emergency or a police related concern.”
The FB post warns that 911 should be used for life-threatening emergencies only and misuse of the 911 system may result in an arrest.
Cablevision said in a statement shortly after 11 p.m. that there was a commercial power outage in its Norwalk facility. It says “the power matter has been resolved and service has been restored to our customers.”

Viewers were calling the cops,
It seems their cable had stopped,
The cops got real hot,
From the calls that they got,
Just because Cablevision had flopped.
It’s not an emergency,
When you can’t watch your TV,
Don’t call 911,
If you’re not having fun,
Just relax and some hot tea.

Wacky Waffle Woman
TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 24 (UPI) –
Apparently undercooked breakfast food is an emergency in at least one state.
According to a 911 call posted online by the Tampa Police Department, a Florida woman called the emergency number to report that she was served raw, uncooked waffles at a Village Inn in Tampa.
“They gave me some raw waffles,” the call begins “and I told him that I don’t want the waffles.”
She reported, “[The restaurant] sold me something that was uncooked, I’m already paying for the whole waffle that was already uncooked, so you want me to pay for the half of waffle too that ain’t uncooked,” the woman told the 911 operator.
She then told the operator that she wants the waffle charges taken off her bill.
According Tampa Police 911 call postings, about half of the 911 calls they receive aren’t emergencies.
“The dispatchers on the other end of the 911 line have a tough job waiting for the next emergency, but did you know that approximately 50% of the calls they receive on 911 aren’t emergencies?” the department wrote.
A woman called 911,
Most calls there aren’t much fun,
She hated her waffles,
She said they were awful,
They were completely undone.
She wanted police right away,
She thought it was not right to pay,
The waffles were raw,
They stuck in her craw,
They totally ruined her day.
The police did not come by,
To heed the poor woman’s cry,
It’s just not right,
There was no real plight,
Perhaps they thought she was high.
