MANAGUA (EFE) -- A 22-year-old woman living near the capital reportedly made more than 4,000 prank-calls to the local fire department in just one week to report false emergencies or make jokes, according to a complaint from firemen in Tipitada, 20 km north of Managua.ha!
Fireman Humberto Garcia claims that a woman identified as Dalila Lira made the repeated calls to emergency numbers 115 and 911, which are toll-free numbers.
"Psychologically, we are tired of this," Garcia said. "She calls every one or two minutes and says she is Johana, Argentina, Lucila, or just to ask us how we are doing. Sometimes she mentions which of us she likes the best, because she knows our names, and says she is going to make our lives impossible."
For example, Garcia added, last Friday Lira reportedly started calling the station at 6:30 a.m. and did not stop calling until 10:30 at night. Garcia said that the caller's identity was discovered with the help of the phone company.
The alleged caller's sister argues the firemen are also to blame because they flirt on the phone.
