Life Alert:

Life Alert Emergency Response, Inc. has registered the phrase "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up!" as a US trademark. The company provides protection services for the frail and elderly via small transmitters that are activated by pushing a button. If someone has an emergency, they press the button on the transmitter and someone comes and rescues them.

I wish there was a similar system for being stuck. Some button that you can press that sends a message "Help, I'm stuck and I can't get out of here." Ten minutes later, an emergency crew shows up and gets your life back on track. Or, if the problem is severe enough, carts you off to a life repair facility.

This is my life alert.
