Cranks

May 2, 2010

I was crank called last night. At 6:30. PM.  They asked to order pizza, and when I said they had the wrong number and hung up, they actually called back and left a message (I had left by that point) to say haha, you were the house to order pizza from and now since it hasn’t been delivered, it’s free. Then they laughed. Haha, yes, little tween (she sounded around 11 or 12), you’re freakin’ hilarious.

Really? Do kids still do that?? I don’t know whether to be annoyed at the interruption or disappointed in their sheer stupidity and inability to crank properly. They had no skillz.

Evidence of this:

  1. You don’t crank someone at 6:30pm. The whole point is to do it in the middle of the night. It’s way funnier when you’re actually interrupting someone’s peaceful slumber.
  2. The first time they called, the number was listed as Out of Area, but the phone number was still visible. Probably a cell phone. The second time, there was an actual name assigned to the number. Now how stupid do you have to be to crank someone and not block the name and number?  This isn’t 1985. Caller ID has been around for a LONG time children, and given your inability to live without any sort of communication device, you should know this. I could EASILY call that number back and talk to their parents. I won’t, but they don’t know that.
  3. Ordering pizza? Really? They couldn’t come up with anything more original than that? Having witnessed cranks in the past (never done it myself, cross my hear), I know that considerable planning goes into what to say.

Honestly. Kids today. They just have no clue. It’s very sad.
