Calling 999 for help

Ever dialed 999 to ask for police assistance?

I did not believe my cousin’s word when she told me about the call she made. Recently, I dialed the number and they picked up the phone nearly when I was going to hang up! You might probably end up killed by that time!

One thing for sure, ordering for a pizza is much faster nowadays!

Wanted to know if these were isolated cases or if anyone got any similar experiences too?


Ex SJC and UOM student, I earn my life as a senior developer. Though I love taking pictures and writing for my blog, I'm dedicating more time to family nowadays. Very few posts as compared to some time back. I love sharing personal things from my life but I also actively write about events, activities and anything hot news on my Facebook profile, this blog's fan page and my twitter account too.

    I had a friend who called on that number and they didn’t answer. Let me find that friend now. 😀

    I think the police force is paid with your tax money to protect the THUGS and MAFIAS in power and to keep you under control. I think its obvious.

    Do these parasites who thrive on your tax money respect any traffic lights? Or stop at junctions / roundabouts? Or drive under speed limits? According to our constitution are the laws of this country not suppose to be for everyone?

    Is the police force here to serve the public or their masters?

    Had the same problem and I still cannot understand why it’s listed as an emergency number when it’s clearly not.
