THE ASS DIAL
MDC informs about the ASS DIAL .
People who keep their cell phones in their pockets run the risk of accidental pocket dials, also known as butt dials or butt calls or the ASS DIAL. And 911 workers are starting to get annoyed.
New York City’s emergency phone system is being flooded with nearly 4 million butt calls a year, the New York Daily News reported. Of the 10.4 million calls made to 911 in the city in 2010, 38 percent were “short calls” of 19 seconds or less. Officials determined that the “short calls” were accidental dials.
