TV influences

Probably most US based forumites would dial 911 too ;). If you're also dialing 555 for everybody's area code, then you've definitely got a TV related problem...

 

999 was a really odd choice back in the day when phones were completely analogue - and the higher the number, the more clicks / time for it to register, so 999 took longer to dial than any other 3 number combo.

I did think of mentioning that but I thought no t*** would bring that up. I should have known better of the genny.

 

I think I'd have been doing you a disservice, and it would have been a slap in your face had I not mentioned it.

Probably made it a lot less likely to dial accidentally.
