If she was ignoring the boy and talking on the phone then that's a problem. But if she was just making a quick call and he didn't come to bother her, then there is no big deal. I bet all you chastising her for talking on the phone have never baby-sat a kid a day in your life.

This happened to my cousin. He was babysitting my younger cousin (his brother) who was like, 4 or 5 at the time, and they got in a fight over taking his toy away. He ended up chasing the little brother around the house, who ran into the kitchen, called 911 and yelled 'my brother's being mean to me!' and hung up. Cops came over, it was embarrassing for all. The kid got taught what a *real* emergency was that night.

I have and you shouldn't be on the phone if you're in charge of someone else's child. The only reason you should even have your phone is in case of an emergency. You're seriously going to say a 5 year old should know better than the grown person who's supposed to be supervising him? Really?

Okay, so how do you all know it wasn't the VCR in his room? And then he went and used the phone in either the hall or his mother's room. I know I've called my mother because I couldn't remember if I'd turned off my straightening iron (I had, just couldn't remember doing it). Five is plenty old enough to play alone. To me, this is a case of the parent not teaching the kid the right and wrong time to call 911.

I don't think it's you fault (depending on the scenario). Though, I don't think your life is F'ed either. If anything this is a funny story about a 5 year old kid that hopefully knows now what a ''real'' emergency is. People just OVER exaggerate both with their criticisms and also with reasons as to why their life is F'ed.

Today, my fiancée told me about her new diet. Apparently, she is only going to drink water and tan in a tanning bed so she can photosynthesise. She thinks this will help her lose weight, since she doesn't have to eat anything. I'm dating a dumbass. FML
