Throw the book

"Wairoa police have their noses out of joint after a woman rang 111 because her husband used the toilet and didn't spray air freshener afterwards.

The woman, 51, rang the emergency number but hung up when the call was answered – prompting an emergency response by two officers.

When they arrived the wife told them she had been in a dispute with her husband, 50, because he had used the toilet without following through with a spray of air freshener. The couple were placated and no charges were laid, Sergeant Aubrey Ormond said..."

Why the hell was she not charged for this blatant abuse of the emergency system?

Travel a couple of k's over the speed limit and it's no quarter given...
