Shrimp Emergency

Generally I'm not down with police shootings, but I'm beginning to think we should make exceptions:

A woman called 911 to report she didn’t get as much shrimp as she wanted in her fried rice at a Fort Worth-area restaurant,

Haltom City police on Tuesday released the taped emergency call, in which the customer is heard telling the dispatcher, “to get a police officer up here, what has to happen?”

The customer also said: “He didn’t even put extra shrimp in there.”

The upset customer was gone when an officer arrived Monday afternoon.

Restaurant workers say the woman had been denied a refund after leaving with her order, then returning to complain.

Cook June Lee said there was nothing wrong with the meal, and that “some customers are happy. Some are not.”

Maybe as an alternative to the police-enforced population control, we should instead have an actual phone line staffed by government officials that people can call when they're disappointed with their food. Those officials can then tell the person to wait patiently for a government "food complaint handler" to arrive, which will just so happen to be a person who works for ICE who will then arrest the complainant and begin the process of deporting them to Iran.

Yeah, I bet she won't get enough shrimp in Iran either. Who will she call then, the beard patrol?
