Miscellaneous Mondays: Butt-dialing

You know what grinds my gears? The fact that all phones can dial one number, even if they are screen locked. Hey phone companies, do you know why we lock our phones? So that we don’t butt-dial anyone! Now the only people we can butt dial are 911.

Said one engineer-inventor to another, “You know what this phone needs? The ability to emergency dial under any circumstance. Like, what if you had stolen a phone but it was pass-code protected and suddenly you were in an emergency situation. You should be able to dial 911 from that phone!”

“That is the best idea ever! There is no possible way that could go wrong!” Said the other engineer-inventor.

Then they all added inane and unnecessary things to phones and were happy.
