Cell phone technology is great, and one of my favorite features is how you can set your phone up to tell you when a call from an unknown number is likely a scam.
Now, I don’t personally answer calls from unknown numbers (or anyone but my mom) anyway, but still – it’s nice, right? Like you’re sort of vindicated in ignoring it.
These 13 people answer, though, because the jokes they’ve got for the people on the other end of the line make the annoyances worth it.
13. Everyone loves a good true crime story.
Unless they end up in the middle of one.
My fave is to be a “detective” investigating a murder at the premises, just picking up the phone and how the caller is a suspect as they must’ve known the occupant, and they must attend their nearest police station to help with enquiries….

12. I mean, they asked.
You’d think they would be prepared for all replies.
11. You almost feel sorry for them.
But not for long, because this is hilarious.
10. It’s important to practice.
How else are you going to get the accent right?
9. They have a protocol for that.
Or he’s going to “accidentally” disconnect the call.
8. What was the answer?
Several people would probably like to know.
7. Plenty of material there.
And no one making those calls is probably going to catch on.
6. Do you suppose they know?
Or are they just completely grossed out?
5. Oh to be a fly on the wall.
I would pay good money to see their expressions.
4. Don’t feel too badly for them.
They don’t feel badly for you.
3. Kids say the darndest things.
Sometimes right on cue!
2. Oh the irony.
The sad part is he probably doesn’t get why.
1. They totally buy it.
And hate their lives all the more, probably.
Y’all, I am so not this creative when it comes to things like this.
