Prank Calls

This is all about a prank call someone got. Poor guy! The telemarketer calls and asks for someone and gets the story of a man who has been murdered. I kinda wonder if this is for real? Of course we all have had calls from telemarketers, and have wanted to do something like this to them. Katrina once told me she did something similar to this, but not exactly. Someone called asking for her and she told them "Oh, she's not here right now." and proceeded to tell them that instead she was in China teaching a panda to do a waltz and won't be back for another 3 years. Whatever!! But this guy instisted on keeping that telemarketer on the line.

I've never made prank calls, I have annoyed telemarketers on the phone though. LOL!! I always go "What? What? What? I can't hear you!" It annoys the shit out of them!! LOL!! I had one telemarketer who actually got pissed and yelled at me in a real angry tone "Hello?!?! Can you hear me now?! Is Cassandra there!?!?!" I just hung up! hehe! Seems telemarketers these days have gotten smarter. Now, a recording does all the talking after you say hello. I hate that!!! I guess with years of customers pulling pranks on them, the telemarketing companies are paying us back. LOL!

I've never made a prank call myself, but I have been on the receiving end of one. I was about 17 years old then, still in high school. One night my ma went out and was going to meet up with a friend, she told me that some other friend of her's named Jim was supposed to call that night and she told me to tell him that she would be back in a couple of hours. I said OK. So I sat and watched TV for a while. When the phone rang, I expected it to be either ma or this guy Jim. So I answer and it's a man on the other side. I'm thinking this was the friend ma was telling me about (I hadn't met him before that time). I told him what ma told me to tell him. Oh my GAWD!!!! Next thing I know we are deep in conversation, at first it started off innocent enough. He sounded like a friendly enough guy. He said I sounded very pretty. I thought that was weird, but not an uncommon compliment I get over the phone. Then all of a sudden, his conversation turned a little more dark and devious. I began to get a bit uncomfortable. He started not to sound like someone ma would associate with. Finally I asked him who it was (I know, I shoulda asked that first!) he said his name is Mike (not the same guy as in the video). Next thing I know he was talking, and I heard a squishy-squeaky sound in the background, like a waterlogged squeaky toy. Then Mike started asking me "Is your's nice and wet?" Apparently that squishy sound I heard was him fiddling with his weiner!! LOL!!! I said to him I am NOT that kind of a girl!!!! And he hung up.

Well, that was my brush with the unusual. LOL!! Ma's friend Jim never did call that night, or if he did, he probably tried to call while I was on the phone with that perverted idiot, Mike!!
