For those who don't speak French, they made this clip because they are pissed of: their number is 118, and the phone number for the telephone directoyry has recently changed, and is very close to their number.
As a result a lot of people call them by mistake, and they fear that one day, they will receive an emergency call too late.

To add to the confusion, some European countries have 118 in the number for thedirectory (UK, France, for instance)

The telephone directory in question is 1818, a private company, not the official number, which is ridiculous and should be closed down.

Actually, there is no *official* number for directory information anymore. 1811 just happens to be owned by the main telco carrier, Swisscom. But as our Federal Office of Communications decided, none of the new 18xx directory information numbers was to be the *official* one, they're all on the same level - which isn't a good idea IMHO. It opened a new market, which is good, but most providers offering directory information are more expensive and less reliable than Swisscom's 1811.

Ironically, it's Swisscom's 1811 creating confusion: people mistakenly dial 1181 instead of 1811, which calls the firefighters (the phone switch puts the call through after the first 3 digits, "118", ignoring the last "1").

Yeah... My German friend who used to live here got in trouble because of this once with a calling card. Here the emergency services number is 911. He was staying at a hotel where you had to dial "9" to get an outside line, and then he used a calling card with the first two numbers "11". The phone connected him to 911 haha. He then apologized and thought he had made a mistake dialing, so called them back and did the same thing again! Apparently they weren't too happy...
