Calling 9-1-1 Hatred!

1. People that call the police for EVERYTHING. (from a lost phone to a DOG THAT IS BARKING AND NO ONE IS OUTSIDE)

2. People that complain about the police, but don't get any information on said police car (unit number, time of day-- NOTHING)

3. People that threaten dispatchers ("I pay your salary!")

4. People that dial 911 screaming on a cell phone, but don't give an address.

5. Management that expects you to work miracles and does not give you the resources needed.

Thanks, (yes I am a 911 dispatcher)

ed note: Thanks for this fascinating post! So is the story about people waking up in a bathtub filled with ice with instructions to call 9-1-1 because they had their kidneys harvested really true?

(And please don't make #6 "People who ask stupid questions about what it's like to be a 9-1-1 operator!")
