911, I have a complaint!

Today, I read what was probably the thirty-seventh article about a person dialing 911 because of a food complaint. Whether it be because Burger King is out of lemonade, or there's not enough shrimp in shrimp fried rice.

Seriously, what is wrong with these people?

Then it hit me! First, it was just stupid people -- they had a complaint, felt wronged, but didn't know enough to call the non-emergency number. With this shrimp problem, I think there's something different.

The article talks about a woman calling 911 because they wanted more shrimp. The angry customer left prior to officials arriving. Then a satisfied customer talks to news to say there's always a lot of shrimp. Could it be a ploy by the restaurant to get their name out in the community to get more business in a stalled economy?

Nnaa... that would be unethical!
