Homework is tough, especially if you are only a four-year-old toddler.

But this smart young kid found a way around it - by calling the emergency number. This video going viral shows a young boy called Johnny calling 911 when he realised his math homework was too tough for him.

While the emergency number should only be used in an emergency, the call is so hilarious that viewers, and the dispatcher, can't help but smile or even burst out loud laughing.

His mom? Not so much. She managed to catch him in the act of asking the dispatcher his math homework questions, and was audibly horrified at what he was doing.

If you think this dispatcher handled the situation well with a lot of patience, share this post with your friends!
