oh thats too cute.. if only every 9-1-1 call we got was like that :)
Male 221
I`m sure i didn`t get h/w when i was four. I was still at nursey or w.e
Female 138
Bahaha, Mother: "If you ever need help, call the police."
And he did exactly that.
Female 5,222
LOL that was cute. nice to know theoperator didnt just hang up on him
Female 362
Aww, this is old but still cute. The officer should have told the kid to go get marbles or blocks and do the problems physically, that`s what I remember doing as a kid.

And ddaq89, as some other people have mentioned, the kid is four. When I was first learning subtraction we read 8-3 as "eight take away 3," it`s a pretty common teaching method with really young kids. It`s usually easier to learn that way because then the kids understand that it`s as if they`re "taking away" three objects from a pile of eight.

That operator is amazing. He deserves a raise.
Female 282
@ddaq89

When I first started school and learned to subtract, we didn`t say `minus` or `subtract` we said `take away` and we learned how to do `take aways`. We didn`t learn the correct terms until the next two years or so. And really, he`s only FOUR. How is he supposed to know?

@ddaq The kid is FOUR YEARS OLD. I`m fairly sure that you wouldn`t have had perfect pronuciation of words and understanding of mathematical terms when you were four; jackass. Cute video :)
Male 6,693
Whats a brother gotta do to get some answers? Dang !
Male 168
This is a good example of why our kids are getting dumber by the day. Takeaway`s? I think you mean subtraction. Once again schools are dumbing it down . That is almost as dumb as when someone is doing multiplication tables and says "six times it by 5".

"Stewart, what did mommy say about calling the policeman!?"
"Noooo, I don`t wanna say!"
Female 153
So cute!! I`m surprised that the cop stayed on the phone with the kid for that long. Maybe it was a slow night lol.

Female 99
it was cute...maybe fake...but cute...:D
Male 211
oh the hell cares if it was fake? it was amusing and was featured on J Leno
Female 98
Fake or not, sounded damn cute to me. :]
Male 1,834
lame
Male 243
fake.
Male 69
Lol I thought it was funny
Female 187
fake and gay
Male 80
fake
Female 406
That police didn`t know his math, he didn`t give any answers...lol
Female 15
This was cute. Fake or not, it was entertaining, especially at the end :)
Male 25,416
Wow, just wow!
Male 13
I don`t think the kids mom was even helping him, if you listen till the end, the kid was like "You said if i needed help to call somebody!"
"I didn`t mean the police!"

Clearly she`s a bitch and not taking care of her son...
probably hitting the bottle

"9-1-1 can be helpful at times."
Yeah, sat on their arses all day, chatting away on the phone. It`s about time they started pulling their weight.
Male 159
"... I started first grade at 4"
"i was four when i started grade one also"

huh, I started it at 6, finished it at 7, and graduated high school eleven grades/years later at 18. That`s the standard in my experience.
Female 533
why did this sound perverted to me in the first like 15 seconds? but then it quickly got cute lol
Male 194
If this isn`t fake, it`s adorable! :D
Male 243
i was four when i started grade one also
Male 748
@Luniz82

Okay, it`s clear that my wording has been slightly ambiguous. I don`t necessarily mean that the kid is stupid, but that it was a stupid act. Most kids that age know what an emergency number is for - that could have been wasting life saving time.

`Stop saying negative things`? The reason I reacted like that is because I don`t say negative things about people, not because I do it all the time. I know that you shouldn`t be annoyed about stuff on the internet, but I was kinda surprised by the response.

By the way, I`m 15, but I`m not sure why that matters. I was comparing the kid to other 4 year olds, not someone older.

There, I`ve restated clearly what I meant, hopefully everyone`s cool with it now. :D
Male 392
... I started first grade at 4
Male 587
@apj311 you are atleast 13 and you say a 4 year old is stupid? When someone sticks up for the kid and calls you a non nice individual you get upset cause he "came at you like that" REALLY? Maybe stop saying negative things about others and people would have no reason to say negative things about you.
Male 669
as in call someone over the phone, or call her for help? if she really expects him to call someone over the phone for a math problem then shes just plains silly.
Male 17,511
Only 4 years old and he`s doing 1st grade math problems ?
Male 587

Male 587
Well it isn`t really helping if they give you the answer now is it? That is called doing it for you not HELPING you do it.
Male 1,083
some help he was. he didn`t give any answers at all.
Male 699
roflcopter, nice guy
Male 1,678
Cute, but couldn`t this operators time be better used taking calls from people in burning buildings and at car crashes?
Male 768
Mom sounded a little fake, but yeah....
Female 696
I absolutely hate it when people say "What do you think it is?" Instead of helping. Pisses me off
Female 170
LOL @ the ending!!!
Male 3,372
Oh crap, that was funny, and so cute!
Male 730
Hahahaha
Female 91
lol good for the guy being so patient with the kid
Female 383
Aww that was cute!
Male 3,076
HAHAHA XD I bet they wouldn`t help me with my home work |-(
@Inter237 maybe she was doing some other thing and he was in a other room...
Male 2,796
Cute
Male 748
@kralmir

Maybe I was kinda harsh, but he should know by 4 that homework is not an emergency and to ask his parents. It`s probably the parents` fault, but you didn`t have to have a go at me like that.
Male 168
now i can sleep soundly knowing that johnny got help with his math...lmfao
Male 40,256
It totally makes sense to a 4 year old. "call 911 if you need help" and "do your math, call someone if you need help" .... yeah. Logical.

hahahahaha
Female 93
i love the moms reaction lol ``you said to call if i need help!`` " i didnt mean the police!" rofl
Male 2,441
His mom couldn`t help with those?
Male 351
"Also, the kid is stupid if he thinks that calling 911 for homework help is a good idea."

the kid is 4 years old non-nice individual, what the hell are you calling him stupid for. 4 for drat sake.
Male 748
Normally I`m not bothered about reposts and old stuff, but this one is sooooooo old and I`m sure it`s probably been on I-A-B a few times before with different annotations.

Also, the kid is stupid if he thinks that calling 911 for homework help is a good idea.
Male 1,523
I love the mom`s reaction. ^^
Male 15,510
I guess that is the only way 911 can be helpful
Female 448
XDDD Too good.

Though, honestly, why the hell can`t the Mom help her son with simple subtraction?
Male 220
i need help on takw away
Male 206
paha. it wouldn`t have happened if his mother would have helped him in the first place.
Male 582
OMG! That was so dam funny! That is a real "LOL" for sure.

Male 37
Man, Policemen are champs. I would be this nice if I was a policeman.
Male 782
(and at least 9-1-1 = 7)
Female 198
HAHA!!! That was great!
Male 7,839
god, i hope this is real. its too cute.
Female 8,123
Priceless!!!
Female 388
LOLOLOLOLOL this is epic.
Male 782
Smart kid, and at the same time not so smart.
Male 561
old
Female 3,726
Isn`t there a fine for something like this. And do parent`s not teach children what 911 is used for anymore? That`s ridiculous!

To call 911 for any purpose other than to report an emergency could result in criminal penalties. Each state has different penalties for 911 misuse, but in most cases, abuse can lead to jail time and stiff fines.
