So, in my dream last night there was an episode in which I [but not me] was trying to dial 911, but it kept connecting to a product information hotline. The problem was that I couldn't remember whether it was necessary to dial a number to get an outside line before dialing 911.
Anyway. I don't really think that I can test this without alerting the authorities.
The "funny" part of the dream was that I was calling because someone was having a panic attack, and then the not being able to get through was making me panic.
