Woman Calls 911 Because Her Chinese Food Order Was Wrong

Savannah police have released the recording of a call a woman made to report that she got the wrong food in her Chinese food delivery. They published the call as a reminder to the public that it’s a misdemeanor to call 911 unless there’s an actual emergency. Here is a transcript and the audio of the call:

If you can’t resolve your customer service issue with the store’s manager, the BBB is usually a better place to file your complaint than 911.
