Don’t like your salad? Don’t call 911
HALIFAX — RCMP are issuing a gentle reminder about proper 911 use after a 12-year-old called to express their dislike of salad.
The Mounties say Halifax dispatchers received a call just before 10 p.m. Tuesday from a youth who said their guardian made a salad they didn’t like.
“The child was upset and did not care for what the parent put in the salad, said RCMP spokesman Cpl. Dal Hutchinson.
“As a member was responding, they called back again wondering where the police officer was and that they were very unhappy with what ingredients were in their salad.”
