When's the last time you prank called someone?

Asked by lucillelucillelucille (34325points) January 28th, 2020

My husband and I did this to a friend and I haven’t heard from her in two days.
I’m little bit worried

What kind of prank did you do, @lucillelucillelucille? I’m curious.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@jca2 -Nothing too serious.
I had my husband call her and say this
We first did this to her about 10 years ago so she was due for a repeat.

Last time I was involved in a prank call was in the mid 1970s.

Given modern technology, they aren“t at all funny these days.

I don’t think I’ve ever done it. I don’t like pranks.

I’ve mostly just prank-responded to telemarketers, and maybe prank returned their calls. Before that it may be like 30 years ago, though I may be forgetting something.

Just a few years back in junior high school. :-)

Probably back in high school when we used the phone book to call Motley Crue, some random person in the phone book was listed that way.

@KNOWITALL -Lol! I just heard from my friend so she is not in hospital.
She never screens her calls so she can be easily victimized :)

I can’t recall ever doing it.

Am I boring?

30 years ago. When caller id was invented. I used to feed the trolls on Fluther but have stopped recently.

chyna's avatar

Yes @LuckyGuy you are boring.

JLeslie's avatar

Me too. Boring.

Arount 1968–1969, towards high school.

We called the bowling alley nearby and asked “Do you have two 12-pound balls?”.

The guy said Yes.

We asked “Doesn’t that make it hard to walk?”

We called the bowling alley and asked them to page Mike Hunt.
We were so funny!

I overflowed a bar once.

My last prank call I can remember was in high school. My mom put me up to it. She was a class act.

I was being harassed by a telemarketer when I was in junior high school. I tricked the telemarketing guy for his bosses home phone number by pretending to want a job interview with the company. I called the boss at 3am and asked if he wanted to buy my used socks over and over.

OMG @chyna! I had to say it outloud to “get it.” Sadly…there are some real Mike Hunts.

We did a few. The one I’ll never forget was when my neighbor boy said for me to call some random number and place an order for McDonalds, the way I rattled it off to my dad.
So I called. A lady answered. I said, “IWannaHamburgerFrenchfriesMilkShakeToo!!!” All in one quick breath.
There was a moment of silence. I waited for the outrage, so I could hang up, giggling.
Then the lady said, “Alright. Which one of my crazy kids is this?!”
I said, “I’m not one of your crazy kids!”
I spent 5 minutes trying to convince her I was not one of her crazy kids. By the end I wished I WAS one of her crazy kids. She sounded so nice and had a good sense of humor.
I spent way too much time wishing I had a different mom. :(
