I often use my iPad to read ehell, and sometimes I accidentally hit the "report" option. I'm not trying to to report the poster at all - if I were I'd send a message as to why I was reporting them, and I do that sparingly.

I hope the mods don't think I'm a serial- reporter!

Nah.  It's the serial reporters who write ridiculous reasons for why they are reporting.  "If you change the gender, flip the person upside down, paint the room purple, this comment would be offensive."

It doesn't get reported unless we tap "Submit" on the report screen, does it?

I accidentally tap or click "Report to Moderator" almost daily. I'm pretty clumsy.

Oh, I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one to do this!

Me too. Hope we're not doing the equivalent of dialling 911 and then hanging up!

I've done that.  They call you back and you politely explain that you were trying to dial a different number.  Now, imagine doing that in a hospital when you're trying to get an outside line -->  ::) at myself

You are lucky. In my area they send a patrol car out regardless. Very embarrassing.

My middle son did this when he was about 6 years old.  I think he wanted to find out what happens when you call 911.  He found out that they send out a patrol car and the policeman explains what 911 is and why its for emergencies only to the young boy who wanted to know.  ;)

I'm thinking that they have caller ID or something and knew it was the hospital.  For the other time, I think I just got lucky.

It depends, the ones in my area have different policies based on who calls. Mistakes from the domestic violence office, got a patrol car no matter what we said. Mistakes from home, got a call back. Having talked to them, mistakes from numbers where there has been trouble before, get a car either way if they have time.

Makes sense to me. They send someone out if they think it will be needed, or there is a chance someone isn't speaking honestly.

LOL, my child called 911 twice as a toddler.  It was a learning curve for us, I guess, but we learned to keep the phone out of his reach after the second time.    ;)  Both times, the dispatcher just called back to make sure everything was OK; evidently, it wasn't her first rodeo with a baby playing with a phone.    ;)  (I apologized profusely, BTW.)

My best friend unknowingly called 911 when she got a new phone and was trying to program 911 into it. Then a patrol car showed up and her husband, totally clueless, answered the door and had no idea who called 911 or why. Yeah, they were very interested in talking to his wife, who came downstairs when she heard them all talking. She explained the situation and they were fine with it.

A few months ago I was looking at new cell phones. One had a specific button for 911. No way was I going to buy that phone because it was too easy to press it accidentally and I'm klutzy enough to do it.

When I worked at the parish, I was trying to make an overseas call and missed a number, making it 911. Since the parochial school was in the parish house at the time, the cops came running quickly. They were okay with my explanation, but they scared the life out of me.

I used to have 911 programmed into my cell phone, but not any more.
