That is exactly what happened in Portland, OR, according to ABC news. A 25 year old man allegedly broke into a home to take a shower and called 911 dispatch on himself when he heard the homeowner return home and got scared.  This is a summary of the call–

Burglar’s 911 call: “I just broke in to a house, and the owners came home!”

911 operator: “Wait, you broke into a house?”

Burglar: “Yeah.”

The operator didn’t believe his story either.

Burglar: “They can hear me.”

While he is on the phone with the 911 operator, you can hear the homeowner Hillary McKenzie in the background: “Why are you in my house talking a shower?”

Burglar: “I’m sorry. My name is Timothy Chapek.”

Homeowner: “Why are you in my shower?”

Burglar: “I broke in…”

Homeowner: “Alright, I am calling the police.”

Burglar: “I have already called them.  They are on the phone, right now.”

The homeowner did call the dispatcher and they both had a good laugh.

Homeowner: “He’s in the bathroom, the door’s shut, and he said he is there, and I said (laughing), ‘who the hell are you?.”

911 operator: “Did he sound like he was high or drunk?”

Homeowner: “Well, he is obviously nuts.”

Timothy Chapek was charged with trespassing.  He has become the latest poster boy for dumb criminals.
