A Florida woman called 911 and asked for a ride to jail or to a hospital. It seems she was unhappy with her current living conditions and wanted to upgrade to a community hospital bed or jail cell. Sadly, the police denied her request.
Undaunted, the woman, Martha Crooks, called again and again until they finally went and arrested her for abusing the 911 system. Thank goodness…another evil criminal off the street. I feel a lot safer. Here is a photo of the beautiful young woman.
(She really wears orange well, doesn’t she? It brings the flaming madness out in her eyes. God, just another example of what I could chase after if I weren’t married).
This story reminds me of a loved one that used to call the taxi company to shop for her. Initially, she would call and ask for a driver to come get her. When the cab arrived, she would hand him money and send him to the liquor store for beer. (Only the good stuff, PBR). Surprisingly, or not, almost all of the drivers were willing to do this. Birds of a feather, I guess.
This became so common, that she had her own special cab driver assigned to her. She would call, tell them what she needed, and he would deliver to the door for a hefty tip.
Wouldn’t it be great if all of society ran like that? I could call 911 to get a ride to work if I didn’t feel like driving. Or I could have the fire department bring me a pizza. I don’t know if cabbies still do such things but I hope they do. They are the REAL heroes in our otherwise bland world.
As for Martha, I hope she gets the help she needs. Maybe that show that builds houses for people could come build Martha a really big one. Then, her and her lunatic friends could turn it into the nicest damned crackhouse in Florida. I would watch that episode for sure.
Anyway, I have to go now. I am having the cable guy deliver my prescription meds. Funny what a $20 bill to the pharmacy girl will let you get away with.
