Writing Prompt: Unknown Caller
You receive a call from an unexpected person.Who is it,and what is the conversation about? Go!
It is not strange to get calls from people who we never heard of,even if your number is not in the phone book. I think they just dial any number without knowing who is on the other end if it happens to be a female voice they think they’ve hit the jackpot. Then they start talking about unbelievable deals which happens only once in a lifetime.
I have picked up the phone a few times, when I answer,there is a pause, then I hear the sound of a horn, which means they are about to tell me I’ve won some kind of a trip.What they do is they try to find out as much as they can about you.So when I say,”I am not interested,” they hang up and look for some other prey. My conversation is short.
I do not let them say too much, I’ve not cared to find out why they called.
Thank you for this interesting post. There are so many people to meet on this planet. Perhaps one will call now.
All good wishes,
Yes you might,who knows.
Ha–I’ve been the recipient of many of those calls and usually hang up right away. As soon as I hear them mispronounce my name, they are clearly no friend of mine!
But they try,don’t they.
