I picked up the phone to make a call and just as I was about to dial and I put my ear to the phone, I heard no dial tone but instead heard voices- hundreds of them, perhaps thousands, speaking at once. I couldn't understand one word anyone was saying. It was maddening and frightening. I didnt know what to do. I felt it was something I wasnt supposed to hear. I was about to hang up and then I thought, I should say something, perhaps they can hear me to. So I said hello... and everyone stopped talking. No one responded. I said hello again and the phone disconnected and went to a dial tone.
Leaving San Francisco tonight!
