I sent them feedback when this was being considered, pointing out that, unlike other cities, the proposal would cause people here to have to dial 10 digit numbers that start with "91". Now imagine, out of the zillions of numbers that are dialed daily, that even a small percentage of them misdial 918 and hit the 1 button twice. Now you've accidentally dialed 911. I expect our 911 operators will start getting a lot more misdialed calls, which is a potentially huge issue if the legit calls don't get through as quickly due to this.
Of course, they were **** bent on doing the overlay method, and ignored all the strong opinions expressed to the contrary.
If/when it comes out that our 911 system gets more overloaded due to this decision, I plan to notify every media outlet that the Corporation Commission WAS WARNED IN ADVANCE that this was a likely outcome, and forward the email letter response I got acknowledging my feedback, which indicated that the commissioners had been told.

Try this! It's for anybody!

"Once upon a time there were four people; their names were Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.

Whenever there was an important job to be done, Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

When Nobody did it, Everybody got angry because it was Everybody's job.

Everybody thought that Somebody would do it, but Nobody realized that Nobody would do it.

So consequently, Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done in the first place. " ;')

When I was a kid, our home phone number was 1 digit different than the number for a local hotel. We used to get calls for the hotel all the time. My father used to make fake reservations for people, and tell them that they won a free room for being 'the secret caller'. This happened several times a week, and I always wondered what happened when the customers got to the hotel demanding the reservation for their free room. Despite this, I am somewhat 'normal'.

They sent the bill to your father!
He just didn't tell you he had to pay off.

Yet that's what the wife loves about me! Just joking like your father would! ;')

I know what you are saying people who need to quit blaming other for there own mistake and misfortune it is there own fault nobody else but them if they would take full responisbility of there own action and they need learn that nobody itsnt perfect I too make mistake and thing i do quit making is to learn from them!

Yeah! I use to do that also!

Then one day a friend's father walked out of the store!
He chewed Red Man!
He always bought it by the case!
I then learned the reason why!
He opened one of the packages and took one scoop with his fingers and emptied the whole package!
He was all swelled out!
He very seldom spit.
He lived across the street up the hill and walked to work just down the road about two miles.

He was a man of few words.
If he spoke tobacco juice would drip out!
My mother fond him dead in his bath room.
The house was soo small they had to take the wall apart to remove him.
It is the way of life.
Hard to believe he raised a child and had a wife in that little home.
I'm still good friends with his daughter.

My mother passed over ten years ago.
The year after I had a new young son.
Then the year after the Lord felt it fit to take my oldest son who was twenty three.
Long story told tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooo many times now!
It's been a long way to go.
Not wishing my mother gone, yet she couldn't have dealt with the corruption and a child molesting death investigater and sheriff and DA's and Lord know's the things.

She is missed as he is also!
Yet!
My younger son is a looker.
Or at least that is what the women at Wal-Mart tell him.
He say's thank you to them but I think he really wants to say!
I know!;')
Anyway, the lawnmower won't start. The wife had foot surgery! It's hot out and what can anyone do about things to begin with?
I know the wife want's another glass of water!
It will be better when she can chase me down the hall way again! Got to go.
Talk to you later! ;')
