The unidentified woman in Newfoundland, Canada, thought her pizza was unsatisfactory and wanted to do something about it. 

Instead of celebrating the end of the week with a pizza, she called 911 Friday to issue the “emergency," and not to the pizzeria she ordered from. 

Constable Geoff Higdon of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary told the CBC Monday: “The individual had an issue with the company she bought the pizza from, and there wasn't enough cheese, and had approached the company and didn't like whatever response they had given.

“I'm not sure if by calling us they assumed there was some sort of action we could take, or what the situation was, but of course we advised the individual they just needed to speak with the manager of the company and not the police.”

The constable said that the dispatcher described the call as “THE call — that one call that will always stick with you as completely bizarre.”

There is no word if the woman was arrested or fined for tying up the emergency lines or if she ever called the actual pizzeria to complain.
