Another true anecdote

(This one doesn’t reflect well on me, but it’s funny enough to post nonetheless.)

Several years ago, on a Sunday afternoon, telemarketers were bugging me — several irritating calls came in, all from anonymous or out-of-area-code numbers I didn’t recognize.

Since it was Sunday afternoon, chances of getting a business call were almost nil. So, when another out-of-area-code unidentified number came up, I thought to myself, “Self, let’s screw with ’em.”

I picked up the receiver, immediately shouted as loud as I could, “Oh my god! There’s blood everywhere!”, hung up, and then didn’t answer when the caller rang again almost immediately.

Well, it turned out my caller i.d. wasn’t working as advertised, and I would have recognized the caller’s number if it had come up correctly.

The following day the caller i.d. was working again, and I discovered the identity of the caller I’d pranked: it was my brother. He wasn’t amused.
