Cambridgeshire Police are reminding people only to dial 999 in a genuine emergency.
In the past few months, they've had calls about everything from a row about a shed, asking for a lift home, to a complaint that a gambling machine didn't paying out.
The Police and Crime Commissioner says he is astounded at some of the calls.
As demand for service remains high police are urging people to only call 999 in an emergency.

They're s now encouraging people to #ClickB4UCall, as it may help save someone's life.
Superintendent James Sutherland, head of public contact, said: "Demand for service remains exceptionally high and it is vital people only dial 999 in a genuine emergency. Inappropriate calls could put lives at risk by causing a delay in us speaking to people in danger.
Here is an example of a call Cambridgeshire police received from a man who was chucked out of a nightclub:
