Entitled Lady Calls Ambulance For Non-Emergency, Gets Full Experience

The E in EMS stands for Emergency, and it sounds like a non-urgent trip to the hospital for a scheduled appointment might not be an appropriate use of an emergency responder's time. Plus, depending on where you live, taking a non-essential ambulance ride to the hospital would give you a nice little extra thousand dollars on your hospital bill. The real crime here is probably that a trip to the hospital costs so much damn money, but, you know, one thing at a time. The field of medicine sees some wildly dumb interactions, like these absurd medical misconceptions or stupid things medical patients did that made it worse.

Man Acts Like Tough Guy, Ignores Horrendous Stomachache, Crisis Ensues

Let this guy's harrowing tale about ignoring an unimaginably gnarly stomachache be a lesson to us all. If you have a stomachache, and the waves of pain have progressed to literal tidal waves of pain, then something is definitely not right. You might already know someone who has had to confront the unfortunate reality of having a ruptured appendix. The key with those occurrences is to be proactive in the response, and not let things escalate to a life-threatening extent. 

Man tries to be a tough guy, ignores terrible stomachache, total crisis ensues.

A small plane had to make an emergency landing on a Minnesota highway, hitting an SUV in the process. No injuries were reported. Luckily for everyone, the pilot of the small plane was Craig Gifford, an award-winning acrobatics pilot. He said he had to make the emergency landing after experiencing engine failure. All in all, not a bad person for the job.

This was seconds before Croatia's win against Russia in the 2018 world cup. Right before the final penalty, these firefighters got a call and zipped out of the station in about 20 seconds. Priorities are priorities.

In February 2013, a Montana TV station was interrupted with a real-seeming emergency broadcast system update that bodies were rising from their graves, and they were considered extremely dangerous. A few people called the police to verify if the news was true. The TV station itself said that the message didn't originate from them, and officials never really figured out who the mysterious hoaxers were, just that they orginated from some "overseas source." Here's the admittedly convincing emergency alert.

Ever Imagined What Would Happen If A Dog Called 911? This Guy Did...

Most of the time, it's impossible to remain chill when you're a dog. The sheer panic of that everyday dog life would undoubtedly lead to a number of emergencies.

We can all agree that dealing with the suspicious mailman and constantly being harassed by a vacuum cleaner is definitely deserving of 911 call.
