    Why did I call 911?

    I was calling my aunt after talking to my dad today and I got the 911 operator asking what my emergency was. My aunts # isn't anything close to 911 (not to mention the additional 4 numbers). So what's going on? Has this happened to anyone else?

    Rattler's answer might be right, but it's kind of boring. Maybe you have a subconscious craving for attention. One part of the brain said, "call a relative" and another part said, "no way, I'm dialing 911."

    I can't imagine why 911 rang up... My aunts # doesn't even have a 9! I've never dialed 911 (or any other emergency type numbers) at any time for anything, so it's not programmed anywhere in my phone. It's been about 3-4 hours so maybe they won't send the cops, fire dept and paramedics. I told them what number I dialed they just said to hang up try it again which worked fine. They didn't mention any local 911 dispatch number was similar. I just don't wanna get stuck with some kinda bill/fine for calling erroneously when I "know" I didn't.

    One of my co-workers told me her 8 year old daughter announced one day after getting in trouble "if you put me in my room I'm going to call 911!"

    Could be your aunt was pllaying a trick on you pretending to be the 911 operator.

    You've seen Ozzy's April Fools jokes. Some people just get that in to it.

    I don't know what to tell you, Swords. That's pretty weird. I doubt you'll get fined though
