Have your sewing troubles ever gotten this bad?
From the The New Zealand Herald:
A woman in a rush to get to a garden party called 111 to ask for help with her sewing.
The woman, who has not been identified, called police in Rotorua yesterday pleading for help to thread her needle.
Now our friend Bryan, who recently deserted us for the greener pastures of Auckland, New Zealand, tells us that dialing 1-1-1 is like dialing 9-1-1 here in the States.
But the best part is the police response to her panicked call:
No one was sent as the local police lacked the necessary skill, the spokesman said.
So are we to assume that if someone had known how to sew they would have responded? Perhaps the Sewing Police? What if they needed to call for backup? Like for a bound buttonhole or something? One can only imagine!
Well, aside from when Josh “Incredible Hulked” a shirt, we can’t say it’s ever gotten quite that bad here at Sewer-Sewist, but we’ve been close.
How ’bout you? Ever had a doozy of a sewing emergency?
