Fake Calling Your Imaginary Friend

from the the-life-some-people-lead dept

Apparently, the latest trend is making fake phone calls on your mobile phone. It appears that a lot of people do so, often to get them out of embarrassing situations, to give them some sort of cover story for being late or for forgetting something. Yes, in this age of passing the buck and taking no responsibility ever — the imaginary friend at the end of a fake mobile phone call is now the latest recipient of the blame game. Of course, for the inexperienced fake caller, you need to learn a few of the basics, such as interjecting a reasonable number of “uh huhs” and “ohs” and (this one is important) turning off your phone or actually calling some automated system so that (whoops) your phone doesn’t actually ring while you’re pretending to be on it.
