A Burger King customer who called police to complain that her meal wasn’t cooked perfectly was quickly put in her place after she was slammed for wasting emergency services’ time.
The fast-food giant has released audio from a 911 call that was handed to him by police.
The American is heard ranting about her experience at a drive-thru, to the dispatcher’s shock.
She claims she asked the staff four times to make her western barbecue burger exactly how she wanted it.
After opening the bag, the diner ordered an officer to come to her location before telling her she had no criminal complaint.
“Okay, what exactly do you want us to do for you?” the worker is heard saying.
“We can’t go out there and get them to make you a cheeseburger the way you want it.”
Amazingly, the woman replies, “Well, you’re supposed to be here to protect me.”
The confused dispatcher bites back: “Over a cheeseburger?”
On another call, a man informs the emergency number that the restaurant does not have the desired drink.
Police had to make it clear that they don’t want to hear from people with petty disputes about fast food.
The question of reporting such incidents as crimes is not exclusive to America.
In 2018, Britons were snubbed for calling 999 after KFC was forced to close 629 restaurants across the UK.
Some called emergency services to report the lack of chicken.
The official Tower Hamlets Twitter account posted a message asking people not to call them about the closures.
The message read: “Please do not contact us about the # KFCCrisis – It’s not a police matter if your favorite restaurant doesn’t serve the menu you want.”
During the “crisis” an irate KFC fan who ranted on ITV news about being forced to go to Burger King was offered free food for a year by BK.
Other pointless 999 calls include a lady whose freezer she ordered didn’t show up and a Manchester woman who claimed her playful cat was “racking her brain” playing with a string.
