I'm such a fool...

Chatting with Andrew online during my lunch break, he told me how angry people get at his job when people call. I (half-jokingly) replied oh, me too! I get so angry when people call me. I have to take a deep breath...

That's when my phone rang. Suspicious of the timing, I answered expecting to hear Andrew cackling on the line.

I said my first and last name, my standard phone greeting at work, and listened for a reply. Nothing.

More certain than ever that it was Andrew messing with me, I said "HELLO?" It was then that I heard a small strange voice say "Helllllloooooooo."

Immediately recognizing the weird voice as one Andrew's goofy voices, I yelled, "I KNEW IT WAS YOU!"

Um... yeah. That's when a very confused reporter asked if he had the right person, and proceeded to ask me a question about a story he was writing. Ooopsie...

I once did that to one of my parents' friends. My friend had said I'll call you right back, so when the phone rang I screamed "HELLO!!!" in a super obnoxious voice, and it was definitely not my friend. Haha.

I hate it when my brothers are back at my parents house for the summer/holidays. They sound exactly like my dad. I never have any clue who I'm talking to.....

I'm glad you added "on my lunch break" just to cover your A$$. I blog at work, on my lunch break, all the time. Good thing you didn't go straight into a dirty inside joke... that would have really made for a great story! Ah, work.

Funny, funny! It was probably too confusing for him to process anyway, so no worries!
