When a telemarketer calls, don’t hang up. Prank them.
When a telemarketer calls, don’t hang up, prank them.
I just had the awesomest phone call I think I’ve ever got – other than the telemarketer calls, anyway.
I picked up the phone and said, “Hello?”
“Hi is your husband there?”
“Oh, I’m sorry! Now I can tell! Sorry about that, ha, ha!”
“That’s okay, ha, ha!”
“Anyway, is your dad there?”
“Uh, sure. Can I ask who’s calling.” (in case it’s a telemarketer)
“Yeah, this is Jane Doe (name substituted, obviously)”
“Sure, one second.”
Held the phone away to laugh as quietly as I could. Then cough a couple times to clear my throat, and then in my best manly bass voice, “Hello?”
“Hi! This is Jane Doe, I just wanted to thank you for…”
And from there on out, it was a normal call – other than my manly bassness. But that call just made my day! Best thing that’s happened to me in a long time! Hahahaha!
What would YOU do if someone insulted YOUR Sausage dog?
Wow. I think she actually believed me! Thought it took some explaining to help her understand what a black hole is, and that I was taken by aliens. I almost felt bad when she actually sounded convinced!
“You know how I was just saying that I see ghosts? Well, I’m seeing one now.”
“Don’t worry, the bayonets won’t hurt you. They’re not physical – they’re metaphysical”
“I could be wrong, but I think it’s a monkey.”
All I can say about this one is HOLY SHAMOLY! He let me drag him on for 45 minutes! That’s by FAR my record. I recommend listening to the whole thing, but in case you’re short on time, I made an abridged – highlights only version. Either way, enjoy! And if you can put a warning out on all your social networks about the whole drive through conspiracy, I’ll be so appreciative that I might even give you a gift certificate for the Roadkill Cafe. If you’re a senior, I’ll make it for the Business After 50 Cafe.
Sheesh! What does it take to find out how to get a balloon ride?
