What can I say? *Smirk* When my younger sister is around there is never a dull moment...
This afternoon after school was over for Carole and Aaron, Carole decided to go on the Internet. Well, we are one of the very few families left that still have dial up. So, she took the phone cord out of my cordless phone next to my desk in my room and placed it into my laptop.
The dial tone went through the speakers loud and clear while she waited patiently at my desk. The noise that is famous for dial up was now being heard. (You know... I know it has been a while. It sounds like a cross between a fire alarm and a door bell gone bad.) All of a sudden in mid grinding the noise stopped. In it's place she heard a women's voice through the speakers. "911, what's your emergency?" Carole whipped her head over at my myself and mom who was looking over a craft I am doing tomorrow for school. "Did you hear that?" She asked with a puzzled look on her face. She took out the phone cord and we waited to see if they would call back. They didn't.
So, a little while later she went back on only to be kicked off by my father calling the house. While my mom talked to him she got a beep that signals call waiting. We have a system that if we don't answer the call while we are on the phone, the answering machines will pick it up. So my mom kept on talking. When she got off the phone, Carole checked the machine.
"Mom it was 911!" About 40 minutes after all this began, the dispatcher asked us to call back because they received a hang up from our house!! So, Carole called back. "Yes...you called my house. I am sorry. Some how when I was getting on the Internet..." She told the dispatcher her story and then I heard her giving the dispatcher our address.
I am standing in the kitchen thinking "Okay Carole, you told her our story, you apologized, you laughed, you listened, she must understand your plight. Why are you giving her our home address?" The next thing I know she hangs up the phone and Carole looks up at my mom and myself. "They have sent a squad car our way just to make sure we are okay."
Carole gives us her prize winning smile and says "Ohhhhh, I have to go brush my hair..." Ahhh ya, just in case the cop was cute.lol...
LOL! I couldn't believe it! After all, Carole explained everything but they were still sending a cop.
The policeman showed up in his squad car lights and all. I saw the blue lights illuminating the windows. And said "Ohhhh Mom, he's here! And he has his lights on!" Can you tell I thought this was quite humorous?? LOL However, my mom didn't understand my laughter.
Carole opened the door and started rambling. (To us she appeared nervous, slightly embarrassed, maybe a little awe struck over his good looks.) LOL.....I am just kidding. I didn't even see him...lol...anyway...as her feet were standing one on top of the other, her hands squirmed. The cop listened intently, nodding his head and comforted Carole saying "That's fine. It happens."
But the man wasn't leaving. He just stood there and smiled. Carole was now getting nervous. My mom came behind Carole. "Are you two the only ones in the house?" My mom smiled politely "My son and other daughter are also here." He looked at her strangely (Everyone thinks our mother is our sister) and said "Okay, well you have a good night."
My take on this story... "The cop didn't believe a word and is staking out our house as I type.:) When the swat team comes I'll be sure to let you know. :) And this is why we need wireless!! Dad are you reading this??:)
