oh dear

March 3rd, 2008

It seems some people in New Zealand dial 111, the emergency number, for the weirdest or stupidest of reasons. I mean, apart from hoax calls and other childish pranks. I mean, really, you need help threading a needle, and fast, because you’re already running late for your garden party, so who do you call? The police? Probably not the best option… But it’s the last entry on this list that really takes the cake:

* A man rang to say there was a cow at his letterbox – and he was scared.

Ah, yes, those Kiwi cows can be terrifying, especially when they’re standing beside a letterbox. Nothing worse than a Kiwi cow going postal.
