    Houston investigators say former 911 operator Crenshanda Williams, pictured, allegedly hung up on 911 callers because "she did not want to talk to anyone."

    A former 911 operator from Houston is facing criminal charges after hanging up on callers because she "did not want to talk to anyone," NBC News reported.

    The woman, Crenshanda Williams, 43, is facing two misdemeanor charges of Interference with an Emergency Telephone Call after two incidents in March.

    According to investigators, Williams hung up on a man calling to report a robbery in progress on March 12. In another case, police said Williams hung up on a security guard who called to report reckless driving. She reportedly said just after the reckless driving call, "Ain't nobody got time for this."

    The Houston Emergency Center determined that she was involved in thousands of "short calls," or emergency calls lasting less than 20 seconds, charge documents said.

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.
