Operator: Emergency 9-1-1

Mom: Yes, I have a serious problem that involves Grand Theft Auto.

Operator: Ok, ma’am. Was your car stolen?

Mom: No.

Operator: Well whose car was stolen?

Mom: I don’t know. My son stole the car and now he’s driving irately down streets and up on sidewalks, and even running pedestrians over on the crosswalk.

Operator: My goodness ma’am…where is he now?

Mom: Sitting on the living room couch.

Operator: Is he hurt?

Mom: Why, no, he’s fine right now, but by the time I’m through with him he’s gonna have a nice big wallop on his behind if he doesn’t put that controller down.

Operator: What controller ma’am?

Mom: His play station controller.

Operator: You mean to tell me he just stole a car, and ran people over and now he is sitting in your living room playing with his play station.

Mom: Yes, but he’s been here the whole time.

Operator: Wait…what do you mean?

Mom: My son is playing Grand Theft Auto on his play station and will not put it away even after I have asked him numerous times to do so.

Operator: Ma’am, do you mean to tell me that you are calling 9-1-1 because you cannot get your son to stop playing video games?

Mom: Yes, I need some help.

Operator: Ma’am…take some parenting classes….::click::

….So this isn’t the exact phone call but I’m sure this was something along the lines of what went down between the mother and the 911 operator.  I’m pretty sure I don’t have to explain what actually happend but for those of you who need a little help: A mom called 911 because her son would not stop playing video games.
