(KPLR) – It must be one of the most stressful jobs around.  Winter weather brings about accidents and 911 calls.  I don't think I could handle being on the other end of the phone of an emergency call and here's why.

Have you ever heard of some of the strange reasons people call 911.

The most recent shocker came from Texas. A woman actually called 911 because she needed some cigarettes.

I remember one guy who called 911 because he thought there was a ghost in his house.

I think I'd lose my cool.  But 911 operators can't.  We need them for the real emergencies.

So the next time you need a pack of smokes, just go to the store.

I'm JB and that's The Way It Oughta Be.
