It is, and that is a common when the call sincerely isn't an emergency or is matter that officers can't do anything about, period. I think dispatchers tend to get the brunt of that because I hear, "they were nice to me" from the officers. People are very brave on the first phone call.
Some silly (non emergency) calls do give you a good chuckle, later on, when you think about it. Some are a bit of comic relief after an actual emergency. It's funny how many blogs, sites, and video's there are reenacting these 'out there' calls. They can be entertaining.
