Scottish man calls police on McDonald's


UPI News Service, 02/03/2013 

A Scottish man called police after he said workers at a McDonald's fast-food restaurant were ignoring him, police said.

The man called 999 -- the Scottish equivalent of 911 -- telling the dispatcher he'd had a disagreement with the staff. After they allegedly refused to address the man's concerns in the restaurant he got in his car and went into the drive-through, The Scotsman reported Sunday.

"They're just ignoring us, so we've decided to stop in the drive-through now, there are 20 cars behind us," the man said.

The dispatcher scolded the man for wasting what could be valuable resources.

"This is not a police matter sir, in fact, you don't dial 999 unless it's a life or death emergency," the operator said.

Scottish police released the call, along with other "ridiculous" examples of people calling emergency dispatchers for non-emergency incidents, to help reduce the time wasted by emergency dispatchers.
