Butt Dial Gone Way Wrong
We’ve all been butt dialed, right? That’s where you get a phone call from someone’s cell phone that is stuck in their pocket or purse, which accidentally dialed your number. Do you listen in?
A woman in Winnetka, Illinois, panicked the other night when she got a butt dial call from her husband’s phone. She listened in and THOUGHT she heard the word “gun” several times during a muffled conversation. Her husband is an administrative employee at the school district, so she immediately called police to inform them of a hostage situation. The SWAT team raced to the scene — 30 of them. It didn’t take long to determine there was nothing going on. In fact, the husband wasn’t even there — he was driving home at the time talking out loud to himself. Police interviewed both the man and woman and decided to not press charges.
