A Canadian woman who couldn't wait any longer for her pizza called police to complain.

Police responded to a call from a restaurant in Elgin, Ont., Monday where they found a woman who said the wait time for her pizza was too long. The 32-year-old woman and her 10-year-old son were subsequently educated on the proper use of 911.

Const. Sandra Barr told The Toronto Star there is no evidence suggesting the woman consumed alcohol before the call, and she's not aware of any pending charges.

"The 911 system is for those that are in imminent danger," Barr said. "It's for emergency situations in need of police, fire or ambulance. It's not for pizza calls."
