911, What's Your Emergency?

It seemed just another phone call. She was using the phone as a toy and I assumed she was talking to nobody. After a couple minutes, I realized she was speaking with someone. She must have hit redial. I took the phone from her and gave it to Emily (we were at her house, so I assumed it was her friend we called). She talked for a few seconds, said, "She's two," and after a brief conversation hung up the phone.

Emily said, "Rose called 911. The dispatcher said to keep the phone away from her from now on."

Then she told me about several phone calls Rose has made to Emily, about 10 minutes after I have spoken to her. I had no idea that these phone calls had ever even occured. Hilarious! I guess I'd better be more careful of where I set the phone in the future.

I hit the redial button to see exactly what numbers Rose had hit: "9111PPPPP#PPPPP"

Oops!

That is so funny! What a sweet thing, glad the dispatcher was nice about it. But every kid does it, I am sure:-)

Bear likes to play with the phone too. I've been known to hit '6' before I hand it to him, so that he cant' actually dial any real phone numbers......

That happened at my house with my granddaughter Emily. I took the phone from her and hung it up. Dispatch called me right back.They were nice about it and I had a great laugh. Good thing the ambulance didn't show up with the swat team. I am sure your friend would like her door bashed down.
