Today I learned a new thing -
If a 3 year old puts your cordless phone in a cup of tea the "1" key suddenly acts as the "*" key, making it impossible to dial any numbers with a "1" in them. This goes on for about 20 minutes and then the phone ceases to work altogether. This makes it impossible to dial a number with any numbers in it.
I would have happily gone through life ignorant of this information
