A 44-year-old man in Hiroshima made a complaint call to an Information operator several months ago. According to this guy, "the operator dealt with it very kindly, so I wanted to hear these women's voices." He then started making silent phone calls on his cell phone to "104," Japan's information number.
One day, he made a total of 905 calls. Assuming 8 hours of sleep, that means he made silent phone calls every 64 seconds.
He's been arrested on charges of causing psychological distress to more than 100 telephone operators.
