If "stupid" was illegal...

What is wrong with people?!?

Are there that many people who simply do not grasp the reason behind the "9-1-1" service?

First we have the guy last week who calls 9-1-1 because his Subway sandwich wasn't made correctly; they left off the sauce, apparently.

Yeah. Then he calls 9-1-1 back to complain that the officers were not showing up quickly enough for his liking.

Then we have this story.

47-year-old Carlos Gutierrez was at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino early Monday and called 911 to say the slot machine stole his money. The report says Gutierrez left the casino to place a second 911 call to say the same thing.
Two phone calls. Two. And all because that evil thieving slot machine stole his money.

Can you say "Unclear on the concept"?

Y'know...there's a reason that casinos do not subject patrons to an intelligence test before allowing them to give away their money gamble.
He was arrested and charged with making a false 911 call. He's being held with no bail set.
It was a good thing he was held without bail.

That slot machine stole all his money, after all.
