911 is getting lazy - and ignorant.
In a related experience (only in the sense that 911 is involved) I came home from work one night all kinds of excited because I had just met Vanilla Ice (he came into Outback!) and I pick up the phone to call my friend. I misdialed with the area code so I hung up and redialed. Apparently I had dialed 9-1-1 in the process. So I'm on the phone with my friend and I hear a knock at the door. I MISDIALED 9-1-1 and they sent cops over. Which is great really because that means that they're doing their job. But when a kid calls - a little kid - they should never be so presumptuous to say "don't play on the phone" and hang up on them. They should always, always take them seriously!! That's just awful.
