      Wow! Seriously!? I mean I know Xbox Live is a big thing and many enjoy it but to use an emergency number for that is pretty bad.

      What are your thoughts?

      People are idiots, there should be a 1000# fine for misusing the number.

      I hope his parents grounded him as well for calling 999 because I would if my kids did it
      and it would be a long time before they would get his Xbox back

      Wow I can't believe people would even do this. I hear things similar to this like people will call an emergency number if they can't find their favorite T-Shirt or if their TV does not turn on. You might think I am joking, but it is actually true.
      They think an "emergency is something as small as getting banned from Xbox.

      yeah, well my friend's a medic, and she says people call the ambulance for the trifling details... like wanting some company.

      It is a really bad thing to do, they need more stuff to teach kids this whilst they are in school.
