Woman Calls Police To Complain About The Beautician That Plucked Her Eyebrows

Woman Calls Police To Complain About The Beautician That Plucked Her Eyebrows

Whether it's getting a terrible haircut, suffering an even worse manicure or your facial tidying simply isn't up to standard, we've all been on the negative side of bad service from the style industry. Y'know the sort, where you look in the mirror horrified.

And there are two types of people in this world - those that will smile, nod and say 'I love it, it's perfect' and those who will go into full blown shout-mode (when other customers are around). The latter group will often add that they're not going to pay or even demand their money back.

Well, now we've found another type of person. The cop-caller. One woman complained in the form of a 999 call because her eyebrow tint and pluck didn't go the way she wanted. Wait, what?



Greater Manchester Police posted a recording of the call to Twitter, saying: "This wasn't an emergency and took valuable time away from someone who needed our help. We're seeing high levels of calls at the moment - think before you dial and don't be like this person".

We sort of want to find out who her beauty therapist was or just have a sneaky peek at her brows.

During the conversation, the woman can be heard saying: "Hi there darling, I need to report a crime, please." At least she was polite about the whole thing.

She continued: "Basically, what it is, I've gone and had my eyebrows done yesterday, basically I've rang her asking if she had any appointments for my eyebrows to have eyebrows tinted and plucked. I've gone there, basically she's hurt me..."


Basically, she shouldn't be on the phone to the police for such a matter.

Which the call operator knew all too well when she quickly explained that the issue sounded like a Trading Standards complaint and that she needed to take it up with them.

The anonymous woman replies: "If you ain't gonna deal with it, I'll deal with it."

So if you see a really angry woman with somewhat questionable brows storming around Manchester, the chances are it's her.

Unsurprisingly, people were outraged at this waste of police time, although some did make time to commend the professionalism of the call operator.

But many asked for fines to be put in place for this sort of thing.

One social media user posted: "Should be sent a spot fine, maybe 60 quid, might think first next time."


Another added: "You should fine these people for wasting police time."

And a third commented: "Hope the person who made this call sees this and realises how stupid she was to ring 999 over eyebrows!!!

"Wake up, people - if it's life threatening, robbery, etc, ring 999. It's not hard - the name says it all, EMERGENCY SERVICES! To be used in an emergency."

Fair enough.


I mean, eyebrow grooming hurts, to be fair, but come on.
