What has happened to people?
When did it become OK to turn into an asshat simply because someone called your phone when you weren't around?
Last night my cell phone rang and suddenly I was engaged in this ridiculous conversation:
Asshat: WHO IS THIS!
Me: Uh, this is Jeff. Who's calling please?
Asshat: YOU CALLED MY PHONE! WHO IS THIS!
Me: No, your number doesn't look familiar. Maybe it was one of my kids. Who's calling please?
So what, now it's a crime to call someone who doesn't know who you are? Or accidentally dial a wrong number?
Oh, but if only I was more of a jerk. It would have been SO fun to lower myself to his level and let him know how much of a tool he really is. But alas, I'm a nice guy AND I wasn't prepared to be greeted that way, so I didn't have any witty responses in my back pocket.
I dunno, maybe you can help supply a good reply phrase to quickly shut down people who start their calls with "WHO IS THIS!" I'm sure this has happened to you. It happens to someone in our family about once a week.
The funny thing is, I checked my entire outgoing calls history and have no record of ever having called him. Plus, when I looked his number up on Whitepages.com, it showed up as a land line. Therefore, the moron probably saw a number come in on his caller ID, and then while trying to call it back misdialed it and called me by mistake. So that would make him a moron squared.
And if I was half the asshat he is, I would publish his number here and ask all of you to call him as well, and then hang up.
That would keep him busy for awhile.
