During the call, the ‘informant’ tells the Police Operator that she has been ‘mugged off’ because the pizza company got her order wrong!
Monday 1st August | by Cop(ex) | @ES_Humour
Essex Police released details of a bizarre 999 call that they received, whereby the caller deemed it fit to use the emergency number in order to complain about mushrooms being ‘found’ on her pizza.
The mushrooms found were not of the ‘magic’ variety either; instead, they were of the fungi type that can often be found on pizzas.
Essex Police got through to the ‘informant’ after the line was disconnected during the first attempt that she made at trying to get through to the Police.
During the call, the ‘informant’ told bemused 999 Control Room Staff that:
“I’ve been mugged off by a f__king takeaway would you believe it”
During a short pause, the ‘informant’ continued:
“I rung up for a number 19 meat feast, and she’s trying tell me ‘nah, nah, you ordered a number 8’
“I’m allergic to mushrooms so I know for a fact that I didn’t order a number 8, right, and I’ve got a pizza sat here with f__king mushrooms on it that I can’t eat – £11.99 later, she don’t wanna help me out or nothing.

The 999 control room staff then asks the ‘victim’ what she would like Essex Police to do about the mushrooms on her pizza?
The ‘informant says: “I dunno. I dunno. I just want my money back.
“I’ve just basically been mugged off”.
The 999 Operator tells the disgruntled lady, that she needs to call the takeaway who was responsible for putting the mushrooms on her pizza, in order to make a complaint and to ask for her money back.
The ‘informant’ replies: “I’ve tried to do that, but SHE reckons that SHE is the manager”.
In response, the 999 call handler simply tells the woman that there is nothing that Essex Police can do, just because a pizza company has got her order wrong.
Here at Emergency Services Humour, we have been debating as to whether or not this ridiculous 999 call trumps the story that we shared several months ago regarding a male (not from Essex this time) who called 999 because he saw a duck, in the winter, that ‘looked cold’….
We kid you not. Someone actually dialled 999 in order to request the urgent attendance of Police resources, because a wild duck appeared to look a tad cold.
It goes without question, that the lady who called 999 to complain about the wrong pizza turning up, will be featured in the next issue of our popular subscriber only satirical eMagazine, suitably entitled: ‘S__ts & Giggles’.
We have a ‘special’ section reserved within our eMagazine, dedicated to this sort of display of blatant foolishness.
