I Hate Calling 9-1-1

Don't worry, I'm fine. But I called today to report a freaking chair in the middle of 635 eastbound. I almost saw two wrecks happen because of it. Usually I don't bother because I hate calling 9-1-1 for non emergency things because I don't want to tie up the phone line for someone who really needs help. I also say to myself someone else probably called. Also, I get bad feedback which is really distracting and probably makes me sound stupid.

So I called because I felt I should. I asked for a non emergency number and the lady who answered started reciting a number to me. Well I can't write it down because I'm using one hand to drive and one to hold the phone (I knew I should have put my blue tooth on when I got in the car). So I said "There's a chair in the middle of the freeway!" She replied they already had that call and was in the middle of saying something else when I said "OK, thanks!" and hung up. It just makes me nervous, being on the phone with 9-1-1. I hope I never have to call them for a real reason.
