Sometimes in the middle of the day when I am home, the phone will ring and I am cautious about how I answer it. Sometimes I pretend I’m a kid because my voice is easily mistaken for one. Sometimes, I don’t say hello and I just listen for people talking on the other end. All of this is to
avoid have fun with telemarketers.
The other day the phone rang and I ran to answer it. I paused for a moment then decided to speak.
that girl: Hello?
[Pause on the other end.]
caller: Is this _____ (insert the hubby’s common male name)?
that girl:Does this sound like _____? NO! [Loud huff] [Click]
Is this mean?
Sometimes I really wish I would think to answer the phone that is not wireless so that I can throw the handset back on the cradle with a loud noise. I’d enjoy a more dramatic ending to these phone calls.
