Tampa Police Say: Don’t Report Undercooked Waffles To 911

It's still the most important meal of the day though



A Florida woman dialed 911 to report being served “raw waffles,” and the tape of the surreal call is now being used by Tampa Police as a lesson on when to use emergency services. Warning: although not as depressing as most 911 tapes, it’ll probably make you crave some brinner.

The video was edited down from the original call, presumably to preserve listeners’ sanity. The Tampa police department says on their Youtube channel:

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? Remember, if you need to call Tampa Police and it isn’t an emergency, dial 813-231-6130. Save it in your phone today.

You hear that? Save it in your phones today, people. They’ll be on standby for syrup runs and whipped-cream shortages.
