1.3.11

The phone number you have dialed is no longer in service.

It's a response I get all too often trying to reach emergency contact numbers, but the first grader trying to go home sick didn't recognize it as that: "It's not working so she must not be home. Oh yeah, we're out of food so she must be out shopping. Or maybe she's out looking for a job because she doesn't have one right now and we're low on money."
