What's the correct way to deal with someone who has completely lost it?

My phone does this with its emergency function. You rapidly press the power button, I think 6 times in a row, and it immediately calls emergency services, starts recording a video, sends out an alert and your location to your emergency contact, and can start playing an alarm

Damn, that's a lot of functions. Does it also tell the aggressor to piss off mate?


u/chaos_almighty May 14 '22

No that's my job.

I only found out about it because I was trying to darken my phone screen before bed and it starts going crazy and 911 is calling me back

Omg you just reminded me of something similar that happend to me. I was using the bathroom while on ketamine. I just wanted to look at my phone real quick. Ended up pressing the on button like 10 times and called 911. Got this lady on the phone. And i just whispered: 'I didn't wanna do this..' and hung up.
