This one time, at my house (not ‘Band Camp’) I got a call from an unknown caller. That right there sucks in itself because the unknown callers are most likely telemarketers but how do you block a call when you have no number to block? I know right…assholes. Sly little bastards they are. Anyway, I pick up the phone and start breathing heavy, hoping it really is my husband but I have no idea. There is silence. Deafening, eerie silence. Now I’m thinking “oh shit”, it really isn’t my husband but a telemarketer, who may continually call back because he/she could be a pervert and thinks I am one too. Let’s look at this situation from the outside. If someone called and they start breathing heavy I wouldn’t know if I should be disgusted or flattered but I’m weird like that. I would most likely start to laugh. My friends know I’m crazy and they still stick around. After the silence, I’m sure it was about five minutes but probably not. My husband’s voice comes on the line and he says “Linda…is that you?” So all that heavy breathing was wasted because I was played. PLAYED!! How the hell did that happen!! I’m the practical joker not him….geez.
There are a zillion ways to prank someone on the phone especially if you’re looking for a laugh. For instance you could say No to everything they ask; pretend to speak another language; make up facts; make interference sounds and say you can’t hear them; pretend you are friends etc. Why not have a little fun, don’t be mean, they may laugh as well you never know.
