This is kid is so relatable.
On Tuesday in Halifax, Canada, a 12-year-old boy called 911 twice so that the cops can put to justice a terrible crime: being served a salad.
According to the CBC, the unnamed child made the emergency call at around 10pm to say that he didn’t like the salad. Then before the police could arrive at the scene of the crime, he called again just to reiterate his distaste for veggies.
“We can’t make this stuff up,” said Royal Canadian Mounted Police official Dan Hutchinson.
Of course, this isn’t the first time a kid – or even an adult – has called 911 for non-emergencies, which can lead to a fine.
“They’ve involved everything from someone calling 911 complaining that there wasn’t enough donair meat on their donair [kebab].” Hutchinson added. “Another one a person couldn’t find their TV remote so they called 911. It’s not just children that misuse 911.”
The cops went easy on the boy, and instead of scolding him (they are Canadians, after all), taught him the guidelines of calling 911.
The child’s parents, however, were “not impressed” by his antics, Hutchinson recalled.
As for the salad? It’s unknown whether the foul salad was put in jail or let go with a warning. The incident, though, was enough to make the officer stay away from his usual bowl of veggies.
“I typically have a salad every day at lunch,” Hutchinson said, “but today is one of those days I’m not having one.”
