Fun with 911

Yesterday afternoon I got a call from Shy. "Have I got a story for you" she said.

While Shy was doing dishes in the kitchen, the children were in the bedroom playing with the phone.

The children learned two lessons.
1) With caller ID and call trace, prank phone calls are not as much fun as they were when I was a kid. (Back in the rotary dial days)
2) When randomly dialing numbers, never start a number with 911

After they hung up on 911, 911 called back.
Since Shy didn't recognize the number, she didn't answer it.

By the time the police showed up, the children had come clean about calling 911.
Shy was able to explain to the officer what had happened. He thought it was funny.
Shy asked the officer if he would speak to the children about it.
He gave them the what for and scared the crap out of them.

The other two friends had to go home and tell their parents.

I just hope there wasn't a real emergency somewhere.
I know I would be pissed if I called for help and no one could make it. And double pissed if it was because he/she was dealing with clueless children.

I know this has happened to other people, until now it only happened to other people , so let's hear your "Fun with 911" story.

It really wasnt fun, but at my old job we had to dial a 9 to get an outside line. Well we were always dialing 911 by accident. They got pretty sick of it and fined us $10,000!!!!!!
