From today’s news:
The South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) says it is worrying that two girls lost last night in a stormwater drain raised the alert on a social networking site rather than ringing 000.
OH. MY. GOD.
What’s happened to our youth when they’d think of Facecrack before, oh you know, calling the emergency number.
I always thought of 000 as one of those ‘common knowledge’ things in life. Apparently I’m old-fashioned and a fuddy-duddy!
Although, I have to admit that my second thought was “wow, you can get mobile phone reception in a drain?”
