Person’s Posterior Phones In False Alarm or The Trouble With Butt Dialing
Does your butt seem to have a mind of its own. You are not alone. Increasing numbers of folks are using their rear ends to call 911 by accident. A recent report from The Daily says 40 percent of calls made to 911 emergency call centers this year were, oops, accidentally dialed by a phone in someone’s back pocket. Industry experts say the increased use of cellphones in recent years has led to an explosion of accidental calls to 911 resulting in delays in police, fire and EMS response to actual emergencies. 911 dispatchers are calling butt dialing an epidemic. Although cellphones have helped emergency personnel respond quickly to actual emergencies, they’d prefer if people stopped using their rears to call 911.
Butt, it was an accident. Sorry.
