"My baby stopped breathing what should I do.?"  Please call 911.  This was after she screamed at a csr to get her a manager.

The first 2 are idiotic, but the last one is almost explainable - she dialed 611 instead of 911 in a panic, didn't realize what she'd done and thought you guys were being blockheads. Her kid isn't breathing, she's full-on freaked out and not thinking straight.

mike_d85: yet another reason I can never live in Connecticut.  Terrible emergency response.

/I want to cut the cable, but my roomies won't do it
//I don't want to pay for a whole cable package for HBO Sunday nights

Then let your roomies pay for the cable.  Simple stuff.

The call center for the cable company in my area uses the cable company's VOIP service. So, when the cable goes down, so do their phones. There's nobody TO call.  Surely they didn't PLAN it that way.

/yes, my eyes are rolling.
