Christmas Magic

Just goes to show you that the magic is still out there when you so desperately need it. Thank you, Quebecois.

Bless Ruby Palermo’s heart. This 79-year-old grandmother from Sulphur, in southwestern Louisiana near Lake Charles, has been getting drunk-dialed by folks up north in Quebec for years, and she keeps putting up with it, according to a report from CBC News in Canada.

The reason for the calls: Her phone number is close to the one used by Operation Nez Rouge, the volunteer service in Quebec that offers holiday drivers a free ride home in their vehicle if they’ve had too much to drink, CBC reports.

“When well-lubricated Quebecers omit the 866 prefix, the call is often redirected to Palermo’s home in Sulphur, La.”

Palermo told CBC: “I can tell that they’re from Quebec. I know what it is immediately. I tell them right away: ‘You are talking to someone in the United States.’ I think everyone knows ‘United States’ whether they can talk English or not.”
