Thankfully I’ve never been in a situation where I’ve been domestically abused or even need to call the cops surreptitiously, but if I was I doubt I’d be able to pull it off as amazingly as this woman.
A 911 operator shared with Reddit the memories of the resourceful call – here’s the official transcript:
911, where is your emergency?
*** Main St.
Ok, what’s going on there?
I’d like to order a pizza for delivery.
Ma’am, you’ve reached 911.
Yeah, I know. Can I have a large with half pepperoni, half mushroom and peppers?
Ummm… I’m sorry, you know you’ve called 911 right?
Yeah, do you know how long it will be?
Ok, Ma’am, is everything ok over there? Do you have an emergency?
Yes, I do.
And you can’t talk about it because there’s someone in the room with you? (Moment of realisation)
Yes, that’s correct. Do you know how long it will be?
I have an officer about a mile from your location. Are there any weapons in your house?
Can you stay on the phone with me?
Nope. See you soon, thanks
The Redditor who posted this story reported that the cops showed up at the house shortly afterwards and that the woman was banged up pretty bad and the boyfriend had been drinking. He was arrested and it came out that he beat her up on the regular. Justice was served, all thanks to pizza.
