If you think it does, great, waste your time and call just to tie up the line for people who might be calling for actual emergencies just so that you can ride around on your high horse.
Your assuming I call for any ol' reason, another assumption that's wrong. I'd call if it's warranted, I'd call if it's needed. I've called the non emergency line before to help people on the side of the road. It's decency, not a misuse of what's available.
Who are you to decide what warrants an "actual emergency"? If I think someone is in life threatening need, I'll call, that's how I make my judgment. You make your judgments assuming others have called, and I think that's the point of this discussion.
