Reason # 9992 Why Idiot Annoy the F*ck out of Me [Apr. 1st, 2010|09:57 pm]
[Current Location |United States, Texas, Carrollton]

This is not an April Fools joke. To be honest, I thought it was, but the guy was too stoned this morning to think straight.

1:00AM - cell phone rings - thinking it must be important, I answer it.
Me: Hello (wait a few seconds) Hello
Caller after 30 seconds: Uh.. (hangs up)

1:07AM - cell phone rings
Me: Hello (wait a few seconds) Hello

The cell phone then goes on vibrate

This morning, I wake up. I have 8 missed calls and 6 voice messages. All from the same number (same as the 2 calls I answered)

Results of the voicemail: Nothing

I chalk it up to someone drunk dialing

Skip ahead to 10am at work - when my cell rings - same number. This should be good one I thought.

Me: Hello (wait a few seconds) Hello
Caller: Ummm..Hello
Me: What do you want?
Caller: Dude - You answered the phone
Me: Well, it rang. What do you want?
Caller: Dude - You answered the number I called
Me: Yes, dumbass, You called, I answered
Caller: This is weird. I just got this phone yesterday.
Me: That's nice. What the F*ck do you want?
Caller: I just got this phone yesterday. This is the number they gave me. They gave us the same number.
Me: No. You are calling from a different number
Caller: No I'm not.
Me: Hey dumbass, what number did they give you
Caller: 214-864-XXXX
Me: And what number did you just call?
Caller: 214-264-XXXX
Me: Do you see the difference?
Caller: umm..no
Me: You are a F*cking Idiot. Your number is 214-864-XXXX. You dialed 214-264-XXXX. they are not the same number, dumbass.
Caller: Really? Wow. dude, I tried all night to set my voice mail up.
Me: Yes, I know.
Caller: No, way! How did you know that?
Me: Because you called my F*cking number.
Caller: Dude. Are you sure?
Me: Dumbass, you just called me now. do me a favor, ok?
Caller: ok
Me: Do you have a marker or pen?
Caller: Yes. I have a sharpee
Me: Perfect. Now, grab the sharpee.
Caller: OK.
Me: Now, hold out your other hand and write on your arm. 214-864-XXXX
Caller: Ok. I got it
Me: That is your telephone #. Hang up now and call that number.
Caller: Will this wipe off?
Me: I certainly hope not.
Caller: OK. Bye

Some people are just too stupid to live.

I thought that at first, but the calls came in the middle of the night (except for the last one). after listening to the voice messages again, he did keep pushing buttons when my voice mail picked up.

May I have permission to use the email interface to text him all night?

I can't believe he stayed on the line the whole time.
I loved the, "I certainly hope not" bit.

Re: Ugh

so was I. my one coworker heard my end of the conversation and was just busting out laughing. I think the guy was just too stoned to know what was really going on.

it definitely beats the lady who called our home phone a few weeks ago and argued with me that in the metroplex, she can dial any area code + her daughter's # and it will connect her to her daughter's phone. she told me that I must have stolen her daughter's cell phone.

something pops up every now and then. I joked the other day at work that I should start keeping track of all the crazy stuff that pops up in my everyday life.
