No one really dials a number anymore. Either you take advantage of speed dial or you comb through your phone book and select the friend you wish to call.
With all the advances in technology that makes many things, like placing a phone call, so effortless (who remembers phone numbers?), one should take extra precaution when physically dialing a number … especially at five a.m.
I can imagine a few scenarios where one would need to call someone at such an hour. A death in the family, husband or child didn’t come home—all stressful occurrences, which might lead one to dial in a panic.
But, please pay attention, because I don’t know you, “Hamilton, Geoff” from (614). And I’m sleeping.
