I don't know if this is petty...but I'm tired of googling things for people too lazy to look things up for themselves and tired of solving problems for people that have absolutely nothing to do with my job.  (I'm a 911 dispatcher)

People call 911 just to ask easy-to-answer non-emergency questions?  I'm curious if you're willing to tell us some of the most frivolous calls that 911 dispatchers get.  That seems like it is basically hurting the people that are in actual emergencies.
that, and is there not some kind of charge or consequence to that?  I've read articles about how people call 911 because their pizza delivery is late.

Uh...late pizza is an emergency.

LOL...agreed!
