Suddenly, Without Warning, I Ran Out Of Beer – And Other Reasons You Need A Mobile Phone

Here are a few (somewhat) amusing stories from people who explain how their mobile phone saved them from some “terrible” situation. Get ready to read about such harrowing edge-of-your-seat close calls as “calling the wife to bring some beer” and “getting locked inside the local crematorium”. You get the feeling that while mobile phones are nice to have, the whole “useful in an emergency” aspect is a bit overblown. Not that I think mobile phones aren’t useful in emergencies – but people do tend to inflate what situations now count as emergency situations, thanks to their mobile phones.
