There are Idiots, and There are Idiots

I'm on the road so not much time for bogging, but this had to be told... Hatom City is a Fort Worth suburb on the north side.

From the Fort Worth Star Telegram:

Woman calls Haltom City cops over her 'extra shrimp'

By Domingo Ramirez Jr.

A woman who ordered shrimp fried rice at A&D Buffalo’s on Monday afternoon called police when she believed that she didn’t get the extra shrimp she had requested.

Cook June Lee said Monday that there wasn’t anything wrong
with the meal.

"She started yelling, and said that she wasn’t happy," Lee said.

The woman left the restaurant in the 4000 block of East Belknap Street and called for a patrol officer shortly after 3 p.m. But when the officer arrived, the woman and her boyfriend were gone.

Lee never expected a customer to call police.

"Some customers are happy," Lee said. "Some are not."

It’s not the first time a customer has summoned police over food.In March, a woman was cited by police in Florida for misuse of a 911 system when she called dispatchers to complain that she couldn’t get a refund when a McDonald’s ran out of McNuggets and offered her a McDouble instead.
