A disgruntled reveller called 999 to ask police to "have a word" with a bouncer at a West Yorkshire club after being refused entry.
West Yorkshire Police's call-handling team shared details of the request on Twitter.
It said: "If a bouncer says you can't go in their club, then you can't go in.
"Don't ring 999 and ask us to 'have a word', it's not going to happen is it?"
The team said it had also taken calls about lost keys and burnt toast.
The West Yorkshire Force said: "People ringing 999 for inappropriate reasons are potentially putting lives at risk by taking call-handlers’ time away from genuine emergency calls."
