Have you ever called 911?
ain't nobody got time for dat!
I dialed 911 when I was a kid. My brother was annoying me so I called the cops on him. They ended up calling my dad to make sure everything was ok.
Yes I have once my brother got run over by the garbage truck when I was 14 and he was 7 I was devastated. He was rushed to the hospital, we found out he had massive internal injuries and internal bleeding. I am sorry to say he didn't make it . To this day I still think I could have saved him!:(
Your hometown sucks. 2edgy4u?
My 2 year old somehow dialed 911, 2 police officers came in the house which freaked me out and wanted to check on things to make sure we're ok. We were fine but my 5 year old was so scared of them , they had to calm him down and explain to him their job is to protect us. I hope I never have to!
yes because shawty was fire burnin on the dance floor.
i butt-dialed 911
going somewhere. She accidentally stepped on the gas and managed to run over her leg as the car flew through the garage door. She ended up getting pinned between the car and the garage wall.
My mom wasn't elderly when it happened. She was somewhere around 28.
That's kind of what happened, penguin, except she was mostly out of the car. I think she was trying to nudge it forward because the tire was on the garden hose or something and she was going to rinse the windshield before us…
No, but my 8 year old cousin did because his brother wasn't sharing
LOL I mean picked
BAD ASSNESS PUCKED UP THE RADAR
That's so sad
One time my dad almost ran himself over. He was trying to get the newspaper while in the car so he opened the door and fell with the car still going but he was ok.
Wait physically beating ur mom?
Happens fairly often. Elderly people often fail to put it in park before getting out.
At Safety Village.
Yeah, not for any real reason.
Speed dial sucks..
It sounds like you need to learn the 7 digit number for your local police department. Property crimes unless in progress are not the time for 9-1-1.
Don't put it in gear with only one leg and one arm in the car at the time.
I'm still foggy on how in the world she managed to do that.
I pocket dialed them :| embarrassed
Poison, not poised. :)
You are correct on that, but I meant creating a shorter number for poised control like 119 or something.
Yes but she is scarred for life
Youch. Did she survive?
Really? You just keep popping up at those things… Does it ever get annoying?
just completed a CPR/AED/first aid course at red cross, so I now know when and when not to call. at least in a medical situation. hopefully I won't ever actually have to.
911 gets called a lot by accident. The top 2 are Buttdialers and Babies.
Dream, when you call 911 about poisoning, they're just going to send you there, taking even more time.
Police, fire, and medics aren't experts on poison. You MIGHT need an ambulance, often, the ingested substance is not as horrid as your first thought, and poison control can provide 1st aid info.
That whole "dial 9 + 1 then the area code" thing for office phones has been quite the challenge for me.
If your child just swallowed poison, wouldn't it be faster to dial a shorter number?
I've been to NYC and hate it there. Doesn't mean it's a bad place, just not for me.
engulfed in flames behind a house. So naturally, I had my mom call 911. Apparently we were like the 20th call reporting it.
A car fire was my first sorta 911 call. I had just read the section in the DMV driver's handbook about it being a civil obligation to report emergencies and not assume someone else had, like the day before (this was about 5 years ago). As we were driving along a country road, I saw a car fairly…
It might be a good idea to ban numbers with 911 in them just to prevent "oops" incidents like these… Hmmm.
Any advice on how not to run yourself over with your own car?
For two years after that yes, the entire time refusing to see or speak to me. Took quite a long time for her to get her head str8, but 24 years later its "water under the bridge"
Did she stay with him?
When I was 10, and my mom's bf at the time was beating her. I called 911 to inform them I killed had him with a cast iron frying pan. Learning that he was in fact alive, and that I only knocked him out, remains the single most devastatingly disappointing moment of my life.
Prednisone is like poison.
drunk drivers, reckless drivers & people driving the wrong way on one-way roads/lanes.
For a while 911 was the number 1 speed dial on my phone because I had to call to report car-related emergencies so frequently.
As an adult I've lost count of how many times I've called. Before "settling down" I made a lot of road trips & I delivered pizzas to get through college. I was in my car more than in my apt.
Being in the car so much I saw far more than my fair share of crashes, hit-and-runs, …
2nd time was because mom set the stove on fire. That wasn't uncommon when she cooked, but this fire was much bigger than usual. 3rd time was because mom had managed to run herself over with her own car. Yeah.
Many, many times. I did 3 times as a small child. Once because my brother & I woke in the middle of the night & found the house empty. Being 5 yrs-old our imaginations went wild with what could have happened to our mom. Turned out she'd gone on a midnight walk around the block with her boyfriend. …
I have several times for broken down in our area. I live in the country and want to be sure help is on the way.
Yes...I took a nasty spill when I was 6 months pregnant. I had to get one of my little daycare kids to get me the phone then I had to call their parents to pick them up so I could go to the hospital. My husband & oldest son are paramedics but they weren't home. I had to call 911.
Happened to me I was trying to call my mom and then the phone rang and the operator said 911 what's your emergency then the officer came later
