The U.K.'s Foreign Office offers help to travelers abroad who encounter serious issues. That doesn't seem to stop people with just plain odd issues from calling in as well.

From the article:
Quote
A man called the consulate in Florida to report that there were ants in his holiday villa and asked for advice on what he should do

A lady complained to the embassy in Moscow about a loud buzzing noise in her apartment

A man asked a consulate in Greece for information on how to go about putting a chicken coop in his garden
My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
