Can You Hear Me Now, Asshole?

The Caller ID said "cell phone."

9:30 p.m.:

The phone rings.

Wife: "Hello?"


Wife: "Heeellloooooooo?"

Me: "Nobody?"

Wife: "No. That's the third time today. It's been happening all week."

I hate when the madame of the local brothel just calls and hangs up.

Jesus, have my Visa number.



Maybe it's not her.

9:45 p.m.:

The phone rings again.

Caller ID: Cell Phone

Wife: "Hello?"

This time...there are people talking.

They're on speaker phone.

We sat there listening with our phone also on speaker...trying to figure out who this asshole was.

The call was all broken up. But we could tell it was a guy and some woman talking.

Me: "Is that Rob?"

Wife: "No."


If it was Rob, we'd probably be listening to some weird threesome or orgy or some male experimentation with anal beads.

I was jealous of Rob...

...up until that last point.

We listened for five minutes, until I heard the guy say:

"..this one has all the same features..."



My daughter, Payton.

This was her fault.

I'm in the middle of switching jobs. My old job provided me my own cell phone.

My new job does not.

On Sunday, I took Payton to the Verizon store to get a new one.

(Verizon Store Motto: "Can you wait an hour? Good.")

About 45 minutes into our wait for the next available Sales Representative making minimum wage...

...I noticed that Payton was playing with the cell phones on display.

Deftly entering our phone number into their memories.


This is going to go on 7 days a week until the store f*cking closes.

I need to call Verizon and have them wipe the numbers out of the phones.

But I might let them keep my in-laws' number in them...

...because Payton entered that one, too.

You know, I think it's legal to kill your kid in that situation.

Coffeypot said...

Next time tell her to put in my number. It gets soooo lonely around here. I've had a great number of sick friends lately so I have used up all the kids in the neighborhood in making human sacrifices to make them feel better, and all the neighbors refuse to talk to me for some reason, so I could use the company. Oh, yeah. Give the number to the whorehouse madam, too.

Diva's Thoughts said...

How annoying for you but funny as all get out for me. lol

billymac said...

wow... that is a great idea for pissing people off! thanks mooog, this one is going into the memory banks...

Narm said...

You could always start screaming obscenities at the phone - I am guessing that would speed up the process of them erasing the numbers.

Jen said...

Hey, I like narm's idea!

That is pretty funny though. Thanks for the heads up...I won't be taking my son to the Verizon store anytime soon!

FreeOscar said...

That's for the pony you never got her.

OMG. Your daughter is hilarious.

The Absent Minded Housewife said...

Better than having your number written above that convenient hole in the wall in the Barnes and Noble restroom...

Rahul said...

This is a great idea. I'm going to the closest cell phone store and programming all of my friends numbers.

Greatest prank ever.

Maxie: thanks for supporting her early torture of her parents.

Angry: don't tempt realize that you're representing me, right?

coffeypot: your number...whorehouse madame number...aren't they the same?

doggy: that's me ringing.

Diva: my pain is your pleasure. Ironically, this is also written about me in the men's room. The guys at work are jerks.

billy: no problem. Let me know how that telephone fraud suit works out for ya.

narm: um...start?

Jen: no problem. FYI, though..same thing can happen at AT& just don't get the annoying commercials.

C.Rag: No...but my wife DID promise the kids hamsters for Christmas if they do good in school. Richard Gere, here I come!

Meleah: yeah..barrel of laughs, she is.

Becky: YOU'RE 'wishing this was me'...?

Mike said...

That is a great prank though. I am going to go to the Verizon store and enter in some phone numbers of "friends."

Be back later.
