Example #3

Prank Phone Call?

I work in the office at a Florist, answering the telephone is literally my job. When your job is to answer the phone you run into your fair share of telemarketers, wrong numbers, confused old ladies (apparently our 800 number is very similar to an insurance companies) and the least common of all prank phone calls. And I am hoping this most recent incident was a prank phone call, but I can't say for sure. I didn't want to stay on the phone any longer than was necessary. I am still a little confused and disturbed by the dialogue...which went a little something like this:

Me: Good Afternoon, T*****'s Flowers...
Anonymous Caller: Yes, where are you located...
Me: On the corner of 97th and Holmes Rd...
Caller: Great...uh...I am just trying to get myself off, could you keep talking?
Me: EXCUSE ME!?!?! (this had a lot of attitude behind it too!)
Caller: I am just trying to get off, please keep talking
Me: Uhhh...no!?!? (I am rather confused at this point, I should have hung up after he repeated himself.)
Caller: Is there anyone else there who would talk to me?
CLICK....that is when I slammed the receiver down!

I am not going to lie, I sat starring blankly with my jaw hanging open for possibly 10 minutes. I couldn't believe what I had just heard! I ran out to the design room to tell everyone else about it and make them feel as uncomfortable as I did. Now, there would have been no doubt in my mind that it was a prank call if the person on the other end sounded like an prepubescent boy, but no. Audibly this man sounded to be at least 35 and there was an odd sincerity in his voice. Which makes me wonder....I think the universe needed a good laugh, and I once again fell victim.
