Sadly we have people that call the police for missing mcnuggets or Popeyes running out of chicken.

But hard to beat the random drug dealer calling the police because he was robbed of his drugs.

It says, "It was this error that landed the bar, which is celebrated for its coffee-making and has won winning several competitions, in trouble." It could be a competitor trying to smear the bar's reputation.

Florence bar fined €1,000 after police called over 'expensive' coffee

I visited this cafe when I was in Florence a few years back and it easily had the best coffee of my trip. Italians are accustomed to paying €1 for coffee, so a customer was aggrieved at having to pay €2, which is quite reasonable by specialty standards given the quality. But the cafe fell afoul of a new Italian law requiring that the price be posted. Pretty hefty fine. :cry:

I mean, really, Starbucks made espresso a household word in North America with, quite possibly the worst product ever produced. WTH, Give them this one.

This is actually an interesting idea. Not sure it belongs in the craziest %#*$ing thread!
