What is the nature of your emergency?

When a loved one is having a heart attack or you see a crime being committed or your house is on fire, it's comforting to know that you can dial 911 for help. Unless, that is, some dumbass like this woman is tying up the system:
Authorities say a Florida woman called 911 three times after McDonald's employees told her they were out of Chicken McNuggets.

According to a police report, 27-year-old Fort Pierce resident Latreasa L. Goodman told authorities she paid for a 10-piece last week but was later informed the restaurant had run out.

She says employees refused to give her a refund, saying all sales were final. A cashier told police she offered Goodman a larger portion of different food for the same price, but Goodman became irate.
It sucks that they wouldn't give her a refund, and I can understand having a craving for one particular menu item, but that's really not enough reason to get the authorities involved.
