TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 24 (UPI) -- Apparently undercooked breakfast food is an emergency in at least one state…

According to a 911 call posted online by the Tampa Police Department, a Florida woman called the emergency number to report that she was served raw, uncooked waffles at a Village Inn in Tampa.

"They gave me some raw waffles," the call begins "and I told him that I don't want the waffles."

According to the clip, the call was placed on January 31, 2013.


“[The restaurant] sold me something that was uncooked, I'm already paying for the whole waffle that was already uncooked, so you want me to pay for the half of waffle too that ain't uncooked,” the woman told the 911 operator.

She then tells the operator that she wants the waffle charges taken off her bill.


According to Tampa PD’s posting, about half of the 911 calls they receive aren't emergencies.

“The dispatchers on the other end of the 911 line have a tough job waiting for the next emergency, but did you know that approximately 50% of the calls they receive on 911 aren't emergencies?” the department wrote.
