You know something? I’ve lived in New Zealand for sixteen years and I still think the emergency number is 999.
“I mean I know it’s 911…” I said to my partner the other day, to which he replied:
“No, Abby, it’s 111. 911 is America.”
Oh. I mean I knew it was 111, but… come on! I’ve lived in New Zealand since I was ten years old – how can I still be making this mistake?!
Well, maybe it’s because 999 was the number I had drilled into me as a child. As for 911, well, we get a lot of American TV shows in New Zealand.
So, I’m screwed, right? If I’m ever in an emergency where I have to dial 999 – I mean 911 – I mean 111 – oh, f**k it! See what I mean?
Or am I screwed? You know what? I’m going to google…
