Frequent 9-1-1 Calls Tied to Cell Phone Butt Dialing Epidemic

“Butt dialing”-yeah, it sounds funny.  But, it’s anything but.  No if’s and’s or butt’s about it.  But you get it, right?  Sorry, but I just had to run with that a moment.

Many of us do it; we put the cell phone in our hip pocket.  I don’t.  I’m scared to death I’ll break the phone.  My kids do it.  I’ll bet your kids have done it also.  Heck, you may do it.  According to city officials in New York, as much as 40 percent of all 9-1-1 calls there are accidental-butt dials-tied to the proliferation of cell phone use!  That’s a butt load of calls!  Sorry…more details here.
