> NEW EMERGENCY 911 NUMBER WORKING WELL
<
I thought for sure the posting revealing that 911 emergency calls are
now being outsourced to India (see article below)
was another Ed Conrad prank but, believe me, I tried it
and found it works like a charm..
<
Actually, the cost-saving measure by the Bush
administration is working rather well but, I agree,
a few minor glitches have to be ironed out.
<
i believe that the most serious is when the dispatcher
in New Delhi asks for the exact longitude and latitude of
the emergency. Thank goodness, I always
carry a latitude-longitude globe in my trunk.
<
It's just a shame that so many 911 dispatchers here
in the U.S. -- 4,335, according to Fox News -- have lost
their jobs

Another glitch, I've found.. is that the dispatcher in India
talks SO FAST that you have to ask him to repeat and
repeat it. Then, too, you have to talk SLOWLY and
CLEARLY -- and you can't use any American slang
<
All in all, though, I like the thought of Uncle Sam saving
money so we have more to spend in Iraq.
<
Boy, that George Bush certainly deserves a third term.
I believe he's the best president since Herbert Hoover.
<
====================================
<
> BULLETIN -- 911 CALLS OUTSOURCED TO INDIA
<
As a cost-saving measure by the Bush
administration, all 911 emergency phone
calls will be processed through India starting
at 12:01 a.m. tomorrow.
<
The new phone number is 91-84-877-30-49.
(Ext. 5417).

Please be patient. Calls will be answered
in the order in which they are received.
<
Have your validation number ready or there
may be a lengthy delay
<
Please do not call between noon and 1:39 p.m.
(Asia time) since everybody wil be out for lunch.

Wanna tell me what, exactly, this has to do with genealogy?
Not a damn thing, as far as I can tell.

And, just FYI, since 911 services are a _local_ matter, neither
Bush nor members of his administration are likely to have
anything to do with any attempts to outsource'em to India.

Conrad's an idiot, as are you for buying into this drivel.
