I’m pretty sure that’s not what the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Region 4 office meant to do when they tweeted out the phone number to offer assistance to people dealing with damaged roofs.
What was supposed to be a “1-888” number was actually sent out as a “1-800” one, The Miami Herald reported Friday afternoon.
“Welcome to America’s hottest talk line. Guys, hot ladies are waiting to talk to you. Press ‘1’ to connect, free, now,” said a recording when those affected by the storm dialed in to 1-800-ROOF-BLU.
When, in actuality, the phone number is supposed to be 1-888-ROOF-BLU.
FEMA has since deleted the tweet and uploaded a new one with the correct number.
Despite being a serious matter, we can’t help but chuckle a little inside.
