I was sitting in my living room, and all the sudden we heard a ton of yelling.
Naturally we all looked outside. There was a man trying to chase a woman, and the woman walking very fast trying to get away from one the guy.
She was wearing a pink nightgown or bath robe. It was odd.
I picked up my phone, and did something I've never done by calling 911.
They asked if it was a fire, or an emergency... I explained that it was neither. I went into what was happening. Then told them that I just didn't want this fight to escalate more than it already had. She agreed, and sent a dispatcher out.
Travis looked pissed at me. He said, "You should have asked me before you called. no There isn't a real emergency going on." I mentioned that I'd let the cops decide that. Then all three boys in my house were annoyed with me. They thought I was over reacting.
Here's the thing I've never called 911 in my life. I felt like I was on that show, "What Would You Do". It was a test.
Did I over react by calling 911, or did they over react because I called 911?
To me it wasn't about if I was wrong or right. It was about preventing something worse from happening.
