(KPLR)-It’s happened again.  Another ridiculous 911 call tied up an emergency operator. This time the caller was upset over her Chinese food.  She felt it was spoiled, even though she ate a hearty chunk of it.  The woman called 911 because she felt it was an emergency the restaurant would not give her her money back.

I do have some good news.  The woman did receive something.  Prosecutors charged her for misusing 911.
