How does the guy who called about his car not electronically unlocking function in life?  He managed to get on a plane and he has a car.

Also "scare resources"

The woman who called about her roommate snatching the beer our of her hand called three times, and at the end, in a profanity-laced scream, ordered police to come arrest her. Police obliged, Davis said.

So she's ungrateful?

FTFA-  All hilarity aside, police say such calls take up scare resources, and that's why the department is drawing attention to the issue.

Ah-HA!  The police finally acknowledge that they view their scare tactics as a resource!  We are through the looking glass here, people!  Or maybe it's shiatty writing/proofreading.

/Also "slighty amusing tales" might be more appropriate than "hilarity".

Not that I've done it a lot, but any time I've ever tried to call a police non-emergency number for something, they always tell you to call 911.

Through Fark, I now realize, that I have a very dull life.  Dull, dull, dull!

I think I want to be a lion tamer!  I have a hat!

Ah, the fun of a dumbed-down and dependent society.

maybe there should really be some kind of general advice for stupid people hotline. There seems to be a need.

Helpful picture of what "scare resources" might look like:

People wonder why I'm not a cop there now.
