To complain about your Chinese food

(Newser) – It's another important public reminder about the 911 system: Calling to complain about your Chinese food is not an acceptable use of it. A woman in Alliance, Ohio, found that out when she phoned in from a local Chinese restaurant to gripe about the quality of her food and the staff's refusal to refund her money, reports WKYC. When the dispatcher sounded a little irritated by this, the woman sarcastically asked if it would be better if she climbed over the counter to confront the employees. The caller, 44, faces a misdemeanor charge of misusing 911 and is due in court this week. (Calling to ask for a divorce won't work, either.)
