2. The Tale of A Woman
A woman called 911, apparently to order a pizza (pepperoni, mushroom and peppers, since you wondered).
But despite appearances, this was a genuine cry for help. The woman was ‘ordering a pizza’ in the presence of her boyfriend and managed to discreetly convey to the call handler that she was in need of immediate police assistance.
All kudos to the caller and the call handler in this situation.

3. 911 Operator
There is no way to know what the weirdest call ever at any agency is but I can tell you the weirdest call I ever recieved.
I got a 911 call from a female for her husband having chest pains. The ambo checked out on scene and it ended up being a schizophrenic male chasing a female (and now my ambulance guys) with a machete. He then took off into the woods naked with said machete. Officers got dispatched and couldn’t find him, a helicopter got sent and couldn’t find him. I got a second 911 call from a cell phone pinging next door about an hour later from a man laying on a garage floor saying a demon attacked him and he couldn’t get up. I thought maybe the first naked guy had attacked him. That caller ended up being the naked guy with the machete. He hit himself with the machete. Officers got there and he started stabbing himself in the chest. They tazed him, disarmed him, took him to the hospital, and got him on meds. He barely had cuts (Dull blade?) He’s fine now. He brought us cookies last weekend.
4. In 2009, a woman called 911 because McDonald’s ran out of McNuggets. Talk about a nugget meltdown.
5. In 2006, another woman called 911 just so she can get a data with a cute Police officer. But she ended up getting a date with the Jail cell.
6. A 4 year old called 911 to ask for help with his homework. The math must have been really tough.
Amazingly, The dispatcher helped him with his homework.
7. A Tale Of Collegue
This isn’t the weirdest and it was actually a colleague of mine, but it is one I always remember.
Caller: My cat got out and is stuck up in a tree.
911: I’m sorry to hear that. What did you need?
Caller: I want the fire department to get her out.
911: I’m afraid the fire department doesn’t do that.
Caller: Yes, they do. I’ve seen it in movies.
911: Maybe movie fire departments do, but ours doesn’t.
Caller: Then what am I supposed to do?
911: Wait. The cat will come down on its own.
Caller: No, it won’t! It’s stuck up there.
911: If the cat climbed up the tree, it can climb down the tree.
Caller: You don’t know that! How do you know my cat won’t be stuck up there forever and die?
911: Have you ever seen a cat skeleton up in a tree?
8. Some More Stories….
Aaliyah Ryan, a two-year-old girl called 911 for help to put on pants!
“Dispatch actually gave us a call and they said it sounded like a baby on the phone and it was basically a 911 hang up call,” Deputy Martha Lohnes said.
Just to be safe, she was sent to investigate. When she reached, an old man opened the door, completely puzzled and not aware of the call to the police.
“I show up, and her grandfather opens the door, and she just comes up around the side of him and is like, ‘Hey!’’ Lohnes said. “Then I look down, and she’s only got one pant leg on.”
She had one of the pant legs flipped and inside out.
“There was like no way she was going to figure it out,” Lohnes said.“So I sit down on the stairs and help her put pants on,” she told Fox Carolina. “And then she proceeds to ask me to pick her up and hug her…and that would be the best part of my shift today.”
Here is the picture from that incident:
