It's probably happened to you: You open up your food delivery, hungry and excited to chow down, only to find out you were given the wrong order. But a Connecticut woman took things a bit farther than most of us would with her response: She called 911, Fox 61 reports. "I ordered a small pizza, half cheese and half bacon," the woman told the dispatcher. "They bring me half hamburger. So I called them back, and they don't want to give my money back. They keep hanging up on me." Why was she calling 911? She wanted to know, "If ... they don't want to give me my money back, can you guys do something?"

The dispatcher informed her she would have to take her issue up with the pizzeria, though she did add that if the woman headed over to the shop, "You can call and have an officer meet you there. But an officer isn't going to just call them and have them give you your money back." Per NBC, the pizzeria says it would have offered a refund, but the woman had already eaten half the pizza. The woman will not be charged for misuse of 911. (More 911 call stories.)
