There are tons of good reasons to call 911. Someone’s trying to break into your home. You’ve been stabbed. Your buddies have had too much to drink and mistake you for a blowup doll.
Nowhere in that list is “my mommy wouldn’t pay for my IHOP,” but somehow 52-year-old Gerald Anderson didn’t get the message. Anderson phoned the emergency phone line after mother refused to give him the $10-$15 necessary for the double stack, according to the Palm Beach Post. It was around the 15th time he’d called the dispatch since Sept. 18, police stated. Needless to say, he was arrested.
Of course, while they’re at it, authorities may want to check into that whole “Mother” thing. (Start with the cellar, and cue up the Psycho music.)
