The kids and the parents both knew that there was no chance of it actually happening. Now, it's a genuine possibility. Amirite? More

If a murderer is anywere near you then the 911 isn't going to do anything for you. I'd much rather have a gun in my hand than a phone in that situation.
911 operators annoy the crap out of me. One time, I was at work, and there were these gangsta people yelling at each other in the parking lot, one threatening to shoot the other, and I was trying to get the police there ASAP. But no, the woman on the line wanted to know all these irrelevant details like what I'd had for breakfast, the color of everyone's shirts, and whether or not there were birds on the roof before deciding to send anyone.
The latter haha.
They only do that in movies for the suspense factor. It's so that we think: "Oh my goodness, if I was being hunted by a murderer, wouldn't it be just HORRIBLE if 911 put me on hold?
I've never seen that happen in any film I've seen. Their response is always, "911, what's your emergency?"
And OP, I've never heard that happen, that would mean there is sooo many emergencies in your neighborhood, that all the lines are taken up... I would move out of that neighborhood if that happened to me.
If you found out that the 911 line was busy in your neighborhood, it would probably be too late to move out. Just saying.
I've actually seen it in movies. I can't remember exactly, but for some reason I'm thinking Panic Room?
Usually in cop movies/TV shows, the reply is "911, what's your emergency?"
Ah okay, see I avoid horror films like the black plague, so it might be why. But I can't imagine that scenario ever happening. How in the world can an emergency hold? Like the op said, if you just got hit by a truck or something, are you supposed to be like, "Legs please hold on getting flattened"?
It wouldn't ever happen. Hence the dripping sarcasm in my original post. ;)
It's used as suspense, but it can backfire because we know it wouldn't actually happen. :)
Oh well I'm under the assumption it can, otherwise this post wouldn't have been made. Or is OP also making fun of horror films?
They don't ask you to hold. They say "911 what's your emergency?" And they take down your name, number, place the emergency is happening, what it is, etc. I've had to call the cops a lot.
Okay, that's what I thought happened, I've never had to call them, so I wouldn't know. I just have to go off of what they say on tvs and stuff
I thought he was. I thought I smelled the OP's sarcasm from a mile a way. ;)
i just watched a horror movie called P2 and the police put a woman on hold for about 5 minutes by which time she was no longer at the phone because she was almost being murdered. they just said "911 please hold" i was like, WHAT?!
Just watched Panic room and the woman gave her address and the operator went "Please Hold", Why on earth would the operator do that before they even know what the emergency is.
