There are a great many benefits to eating out: you don’t have to cook, someone waits on you, there’s an unlimited supply of wine, etc. But there are definitely some downsides: bad service (although I was a waitress for what feels like forever, so I’m a little more lenient), having to deal with other people at the restaurant (literally, child-free restaurants need to be established pronto), and, of course, the occasional bad meal. When you have a bad experience with restaurant food, it definitely sucks. You paid money for a meal that you didn’t enjoy – money that you could have spent at Chipotle on a burrito you know you would have been happy with. But one woman in Ohio took her issue with sub-par Chinese food just a little bit too far.
Tracey McCloud was dining out and was not happy with the quality of her food at Main Moon Chinese in Alliance, OH. She asked for her money back, and when her request was refused, she decided that warranted calling in some backup to get her refund – and she dialed 911 to get it.
According to The Daily What, McCloud told the operator, “I had bought some Chinese food and it’s not to par to me and I asked to get my money back and they acting like they don’t understand me and they took my food and won’t give my money back.” The Alliance police did indeed show up – to arrest McCloud for misuse of the emergency 911 system, a misdemeanor.
The Alliance PD took to their Facebook page to remind citizens that, while you may not be happy with your order of crab rangoon, dialing 911 is not the solution.
McCloud’s next court date is July 10th. No update on whether the po-po will let her take her pu-pu platter with her to the clink..
