Figured out what the commotion in the hotel (near Boston) last night was all about. A couple of Indians living in this other room wanted to dial a toll-free number from their hotel room. What they had to do was dial 9 followed by 1-800. Instead, they dialled 91 followed by 1-800. The police were at their doorstep in five minutes.
For folks who are unfamiliar with the 911 concept - read this: 911
Funny when these things happen to other people.
