A 12-year-old boy from Halifax, Nova Scotia, was so unhappy when his parents served him up a leafy dinner last week that he made his displeasure known — by calling 911.
When the cops did not respond to his emergency in a timely fashion, he called again, just to reiterate how much he hates crunching on a bowl of raw, tossed vegetables.
As CBC News reports, the Canadian police did eventually arrive at his door.
They did not, however, intervene on the quality and substance of the family’s dinner. Rather, they used the unexpected house call as an opportunity to educate the boy about the appropriate uses of 911.
“Hopefully this will be a learning lesson,” Cpl. Dal Hutchinson told CBC News.
Meanwhile, the kid’s parents were reportedly “not impressed” by their son’s over-the-top cry for help.
Not all heroes wear capes. Calling 911 on your parents for making you salad for dinner is the most reasonable thing I’ve read on the internet today. Coming home to see your mom and dad serving you vegetables is second worst way to walk in on your parents tossing salad. Trust me, it’s all fun and games until you realize the ranch dressing is something else.
Salad for dinner? I can’t imagine anything worse. Now being thrown in a cage doesn’t seem so bad. People forget that you don’t have to eat vegetables if your parents get deported. Why do you think they call it a GREEN card?
I’m just disappointed in the police for not taking this matter more seriously. Next time this boy calls 911, he should make sure the police know that the olives are black. Then they’ll surely respond in a timely fashion.
I’m just sick of this false narrative that eating fruits and vegetables is beneficial. Eve ate an apple once. How’d it work out for that bitch? Don’t get me started on Snow White.
All I’m saying is that there was a reason Jesus broke bread and not celery. Technically, Hitler was the first person to advocate for a juice cleanse.
