Why am I NOT totally surprised...

...that I have the chance to use my "ditzy" icon again? Something tells me I'm going to be using it a lot within the next few days (this lack of sleep is really beginning to affect me). ;) I really have to rush off to study, but I wanted to mention what a bonehead I am before I hit the books. ;)

At my workplace, to dial an outside line you need to dial a "9" first. So I was trying to call our home office in CA, but I must've miss-dialed, because halfway through the long distance number the phone started ringing. Well, I thought nothing of it, hung up, and tried again. No big deal, right?

Wrong! :P I finally got our home office on the phone and halfway through my conversation with them, my co-worker comes up to me in a panic - writing me a note on a piece of paper I had nearby. "Did you call the police?" was scribbled on the note.

I excused myself from the conversation I was having with the person on the phone and said, "No, why?" My co-worker went on to tell me that she just got a call from the police asking if someone called 911 and then hung up! :P My co-worker asked if it came from our number and the police repeated MY number back to her! She went back to tell the police that it was definitely a mistake and the police told her that they were going to notify the units that they already dispatched and tell them not to show up! I guess because they tracked the number back to the bank, they expected the worst and was already prepared to check it out. :P Ooops!

Oh my gosh! I felt so silly and utterly stupid. :P My co-workers and my boss thought it was the most hilarious thing, though and I don't think I'll ever be able to live this one down! ;) As I mentioned earlier, at our office you need to dial "9" to get an outside line - and all long distance numbers start by dialing a "1"... :P So it was an easy mistake to make.... right? ;) Okay, it was probably the most ditzy thing I've EVER done - but at least we all got a good laugh out of it. ;) I think I'll just blame it on the lack of sleep. ;)
