It's like a movie

The single most disturbing thing I've heard all day:

One of our board members came through my checkout line today. He had gone to Gus' funeral this morning and asked if I had heard about Gus' cell phone. I had not. Apparently, Gus' daughter told this man that Gus had his cell phone out when he died, and that he had managed to dial the numbers 9 and 1.

91. He fucking tried to call 911 and got that close. It freaks me the Hell out, man.

All day? That's probably the most disturbing thing I've heard all year.

Well, yea, that too.

Then again, after I thought about it for a while, it made it seem even more like this was really his time to go -- so many chances to be saved, and every one missed by just that much.

But wouldn't you be worried about dialing it by accident? I remember my old phone had some sort of "emergency key 9" feature. I never set it up, but I guess the idea was that you just had to hit the number 9. Me, I hit that damn thing all the time by accident -- this is why I even know about it. Because I was always getting the "emergency key 9 feature not set up yet" error message.

well, my phone keys are always locked unless i'm dialing, and i never hit "send" without verifying the number i've dialed. (my phone will charge me a full minute for a misdialed or wrong number)

i'm not worried about it

A full minute? That completely blows. We need to get you a real cell phone one of these days.
