911 Emergency

When a blonde needs emergency treatment

Phone problems when it matters most


Shortly after the 911 emergency number became available in her town, an elderly and quite ill blonde lady appeared in a hospital emergency room, having driven herself to the hospital and barely managing to stagger in from the parking lot.

The horrified nurse said, “Why didn’t you call the 911 number and get an ambulance?”

The lady said, “My phone doesn’t have an eleven.”
