Butt-dialing 911 is an epidemic in New York

Do you have any idea how many booty calls are made each year? In 2010 — in New York City alone — nearly 4 million, and those were just the accidental ones. The booty calls we’re talking about are also known as butt-dialing or pocket calls. It happens everywhere, but in the Big Apple, butt-dialing 911 is an epidemic.

Thirty-eight percent of all emergency calls — about 10,700 every day — were made by an ass. Literally.

Houston has butt-dialers too, but we’ll never know how many since the city says they don’t track accidental 911 calls.

Cells phones are only gaining in popularity, so don’t expect the pocket calls frequency to drop unless people discover the “keyguard” function on their phone.

Let’s hope they do. It would suck to wait for emergency help because the 911 operator is on the line with an ass.
